Craig Berggold

Craig Berggold's personal activist images are combined with appropriated mass-culture in a cut-up collage animation, with an original song by Clive Robertson. Exploding the populist music video form and set against the backdrop of unemployment and a cross-Canada bus ride. "We're still here, which is to say, counter culture never went away, Had your rest, somethings happening, Grandmaster Flash with Jesse Jackson, Honey In The Rock, LKJ, Scott-Herron is here to play, Womensbands come out of the woods, community radio sounding good. So get out your pen, watch the street... Dance to the sound of the coalition beat." Welfare or Warfare (1984).
