Responding to Waterloo Festival’s 2019 theme Transforming Being, Self-Service explores the myriad meanings of self-service. Taking its lead from the check-out counters of supermarkets and petrol station forecourts, this exhibition brings together 20 moving image works that respond to this idea of ‘self-service’. Works were contributed by members of the London Group, invited artists and artists chosen from an open call in response to the title.
