Peter Greenaway uses visual imagery to present this warm and humorous look at people and their bathrooms, revealing that the bathroom is used for far more than the daily duties of cleanliness and hygiene. We see people soaking, dozing, eating, reading, chatting and watching television in surroundings that range from plain porcelain to the “Samuel Beckett Memorial Bathroom”.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
