This September there will be a series of events around London to mark the 40th anniversary of John Berger's controversial Booker prize-winning novel G. and his hugely influential collaborative art-historical television series Ways of Seeing. Central to Bergerís work across all media has been his six decade long commitment to collaboration as a genuinely equivalent and productive meeting of makers. Here, several of his key creative partners share their reflections on working with Berger, and why collaboration remains more relevant, both aesthetically and politically, than ever.
John Christie is an artist, film-maker and co-founder of East Anglian publishers Full Circle Editions. With John Berger he has made the acclaimed television series Another Way of Telling, and the books I Send You This Cadmium Red and Pages of the Wound, alongside other projects. Film-maker Mike Dibb directed Ways of Seeing and other film essays with John. Andy Merrifieldís new biography of Berger is
published by Reaktion Books.
