Buckingham works primarily with film, video and text to present installations that are the result of thorough research and investigation into historic people or places.

This room installation consists of two projected video images with sound. The subject of the work is Charlotte Wolff (1897-1986), a writer and psychologist who wrote seminal studies of bisexuality and homosexuality. In the 1970s Wolff returned to Berlin for the first time since she fled from Germany in the 1930s. Buckingham’s installation focuses on Wolff's return. It combines text from Wolff's memoir with images of the interior of a 1970s aircraft. This is the first time Buckingham’s work has been acquired by a UK public collection. Presented by the Art Fund through Art Fund International.
