As part of United Enemies, the Institute has organised a series of film screenings exploring how artists in the 1960s and 1970s deployed sculpture in film, as well as using film to rethink sculpture. Each screening addresses the three central approaches to sculpture taken in United Enemies: 'Manual Thinking', 'Standing' and 'Groundwork'.

Rarely screened films made by several of the artists in the exhibition are programmed alongside radical and influential work made by British experimental filmmakers. The events feature live expanded cinema works performed in person by David Dye and Malcolm Le Grice, and the guest attendance of Sebastian Boyle of The Boyle Family.

Jill Bruce & Bruce Lacey, ‘Double Exposure’, 1975
