In December 2012 Jane and Louise Wilson featured as part of a Film London FLAMIN Artists’ Screening day at The Whitechapel Gallery alongside artists Zarina Bhimji, Sebastian Buerkner and Rachel Reupke. The Wilsons screened Chernobyl: A Chronicle of Difficult Weeks, the 1986 documentary made by Soviet filmmaker Vladimir Shevchenko in the days immediately following the accident.

Shevchenko’s film and Susan Schuppli’s essay “The Most Dangerous Film in the World” inspired the Wilsons’ new work, The Toxic Camera. The artists discussed both films with artist and cultural theorist, Susan Schuppli following the screening.
