The Return of The Return of the Durutti Column

About this artwork

This image was originally a French anarchist student poster, in which speech bubbles were added to a film poster and it was given the title ‘The Return of the Durutti Column’. Wyn Evans translated the text into English, and the print plays on the idea of adaptation. To affirm the theme of conversion, the work is printed in luminous ink so the outline image only appears in the dark. This work is from a portfolio of prints by eleven different London-based artists, called ‘Screen’. The title is taken from the screenprint technique but also refers to the fact that most of the artists had worked with film or photography.
