Our project at Bootle Library, Liverpool written up in the Big Issue

In the summer 2017 we have been commissioned by curator Maria Brewster to make work for The Human Library at Bootle library, Liverpool.

The participatory project work that started around skill exchange led into a more in depth engagement with clay and photography, looking to bring the two together and always with community, conversation and sharing at its core. 

Thank you The Big Issue for the write up.

Screening the UnEarthing Elephant film @ Arts Admin, 27 September, 7.30PM

Unearthing ELEPHANT screened at: 

Mini -Festival Amsterdam, 17 June 2017 (organised by Failed Architecture);

Comment from the organisers:

We had a great night Saturday and the screening was well attended despite the hot weather. We watched the film with about 50 people and had a brief discussion afterwards, among others on the 'porosity' of such a space (in a positive sense), but also on the almost deliberate neglect of such spaces by authorities and real estate owners. FA team member Tim Verlaan made an interesting comparison with the Hoogh Caterijne in Utrecht, built in 1962, both a shopping mall and the city's main transport hub (https://vuartandculture.com/2017/01/11/making-the-invisible-visible/). 

Further screenings: 

Mini -Festival Amsterdam, 17 June 2017 (organised by Failed Architecture); Milton Keynes, 29 June 2017 (in collaboration with the Open University and MK gallery); Southwark Playhouse, July 2017; Liverpool, September 2017; Airspace gallery, Stoke on Trent, Autumn 2017.

4 March, 12-6 pm Tate Exchange, Tate Modern

As part of the Spatial Justice day at the Tate, we will be hosting Prof Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos, whose work is the leading force behind the day’s activities. 

Prof Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos defines spatial justice as the conflict that emerges when one body wants to move into the space of another body. This opens up questions of symbiosis, creative confluence and regeneration, but also issues of power imbalances. The interview will elucidate some of these issues in his work, and the ensuing discussion will attempt at situating ourselves in the ongoing move of regeneration but also displacement of local communities. We hope to explore ideas about the role of developers, art institutions, and artists in dealing with issues of spatial justice and productive ways of reflecting them in their practices.
