Marjolaine Ryley: Growing Up in the New Age

Carl Licata

`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.
