London Video Access (LVA)

London Video Access (LVA), later renamed London Electronic Arts, merged with The London Film Makers' Co-op in January, 1999, to form The Lux Centre. The Lux is a leading media center in Britain, dedicated to facilitating the production, exhibition and distribution of film, video and digital arts.

These two programs, compiled by Jeremy Welsh (who was then the Director of LVA), capture the cultural and artistic spirit of British video in the mid-1980s. Appropriated "scratch" video, critiques of Thatcher and Reagan, and the merging of pop culture and political issues are all present in these time capsules of British media art circa 1985.
