Dennis Crompton brings Archigram's Video Archive to Princeton

 April 5, 2010 

Archigram founding member and archivist Dennis Crompton hosted "Archigram at the Movies" - a film night featuring infrequently viewed historical videos from the Archigram Archives. Films included Reyner Banham's underappreciated "Fathers of Pop" [1979] in which Banham interviews the founding members of the Independent Group and discusses the British art and cultural scene in the 1950s. Other films included a lecture by Banham on Megastructures as well as Archigram videos which animated their iconic designs and urban visions form the 1960s.
