Beyond Caring – Paul Graham (1984-1985)

“Produced in the early 1980s in Britain, Beyond Caring shows the interiors of unemployment offices and the large crowds of people waiting for their appointments. The offices, we are told in the essay by David Chandler, had been designed to deal with up to 600,000 people, and they were completely overwhelmed by the millions of people asking for help. “There is no such thing as society,” Margaret Thatcher famously said – a sentiment mirrored across the Atlantic by the American right’s mantra that “government is the problem.” Regardless of whether we agree on these sentiments or not, they have serious consequences, and Beyond Caring shows some of those consequences.” – Joerg Colberg
