Collaborative Anthropology and the venatic: from Mass Observation to MyStreet.
MyStreet, a collaborative anthropological research project launched in the UK in 2011, revives the radical project at the centre of the 1930s Mass Observation movement (founded by the anthropologist Tom Harrison, poet Charles Madge, and film-maker Humphrey Spender). Research into this earlier quasi-anthropological attempt to democratize ethnography in the service of the ‘everyday’ fuses with anthropological research on popular contestation and the potential of film as a vehicle of contestation within the public sphere.
