Jeremy Deller / 2018, UK, 61 min

The real roots of rave with the Turner Prize-winning artist and a class of politics students.

Everybody in The Place: An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992 is a postmodernist lecture on acid house by British artist and curator, Turner prize winner Jeremy Deller, who represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 2013. With the title borrowed from a Prodigy song, the documentary is based on Deller’s hour-long lecture at an English high school. Discussing the beginning and development of underground rave culture in the context of social shakeups of the Thatcher era, Deller avoids lengthy descriptions of acid fashion and music, and instead focuses on miners’ strikes, compares early house clubs to churches, and brings in Marxist theory to reiterate an obvious but important point: whatever we do is politics —and rave was no exception.
