Urban Intervention

This intervention deploys strategies similar to the ones used on the “TBC” tag campaign associated with the Cathedral Quarter redevelopment plans. The campaign aroused social media fury and inspired creative engagement with Belfast city centre by local arts organisations.

Historical news and media imagery from the UTV Archive, printed onto posters and scattered around the Cathedral Quarter, are brought into the present day to coexist with contemporary life. The presence of various temporalities in the streets of the city highlights the difference that time and perspective can make; what once was taken as true, through the passing of time may be revealed to be lies.

This is part of the PRONI, Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive and ITV partnership project to preserve the UTV Archive for future generations.
