The Last Angel of History is one of the most influential video-essays of the 1990s, influencing filmmakers and many others. The film is an engaging and searing examination of the hitherto unexplored relationships between Pan-African culture, science fiction, intergalactic travel, and rapidly progressing computer technology.
The screening will be followed by an informal discussion and drinks.
Admission: £4.50 (£3 concession). Please be aware that places are limited. To book in advance please call 0115 924 8630.

On September 14 1814, the lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote what would become The Star Spangled Banner, the national anthem for the United States of America.
Incorporating an installation, a parade float, a studio production and a series of public events, This Is It will attempt to capture and unpick the way we recognise, record and respond to history that has happened, is happening now and will happen in the future.
We’re hosting several events at The Royal Standard. See what’s on and book a space here.

From the Caretaker’s House. Episode 1
Featuring Dave Charlesworth
Four years ago, the world was startled by the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, arguably the most impressive visual spectacle of modern times. But amidst the rockets fired to create the perfect weather, the digitally composited footstep fireworks and that ugly child with the perfect voice being hidden away in a broom cupboard, there emerged an element of deception that only became apparent because of mankind’s fondness for suspicion.
On 24 April 1558, Mary, Queen of Scots married François, the Dauphin of France. On 24 April 1704, the first newspaper in the United States, the ‘News-Letter’, was published in Boston, Massachusetts. On 24 April 1967, Vladimir Komarov became the first human fatality during a space mission in the Soviet spacecraft Soyuz 1.
On 24 April 2012, Tethervision will launch Caretakers House, their latest series live at Primary in Nottingham and also streamed live online.
Wake – the first programme in the series features a performance of ‘A Struggle Told 5 Ways’ by London-based artist Dave Charlesworth.
With the analogue to digital switchover, the kindle and the iPad, we are entering the final stages of the inevitable transition to a new, non physical materialism. Wake will mourn this slow passing of the analogue and look to the coming years to be spent with it’s new, energised replacement.
A new film by Tether features within Oliver Braid’s exhibition at The Royal Standard, ‘My 5 New Friends’.
“The exhibition at The Royal Standard will juxtapose newly commissioned short films by David Hoyle & Lee Baxter, Patrick Staff, Maayke Schurer, Roxy Topia & Paddy Gould and Tether who have been interpreting the evolving narratives alongside meticulously hand crafted ‘gift objects’ created by Oliver Braid, one for each of his new ‘friends’, all re-presented in a bespoke installation environment designed by It’s Our Playground.”
