Immediate Extract/Passive Resistance played on the contrast between applied embellishment suggestive of period splendour and the disrepair of an abandoned building.

Press reports, protesters’ accounts and the lyrics of campaign songs interwove to narrate the convictions and eccentricities of a campaign that united a community.
