Growing Up in the New Age

Marjolaine Ryley

Growing up in the New Age is an artist initiated research project that explores this alternative world, from communes in the south of France, squatting in South London and 'free school' education to the many forays into all things `New Age' set against the backdrop of social and political happenings of the era. Using a range of approaches including photography/digital imaging, film and video, writing, collecting, re-using archival materials and the web Growing up in the New Age sets out to reconsider the social utopias of the 1960s and early 70s and what we might learn from them today.
