Tacita Dean: Save This Language

Tacita Dean: Save This Language 

Leading British artist, Tacita Dean takes listeners with her on a mission to save a language. Not the kind that is spoken in a remote community, but an artistic one – photochemical film. She travels to UNESCO in Paris, to the Department of Intangible Cultural Heritage, to persuade the world’s heritage keepers to act fast or lose what she considers the most important form of artistic expression of the 20th century.

As photochemical film heads for extinction, superceded by digital technologies, Tacita makes a compelling case for why we should do all we can to keep it alive.
