We have contributed a short essay to this new book that is being released in London on October 24 at The Showroom. We will post our text and more information on the book once we get a copy in our hands. We can't wait to see it!
24 October, 6.30–8.30pm
Double Book Launch
Launch of Andrea Francke’s Invisible Spaces of Parenthood manual and Delta Arts’ publication Golden Threads
The ISP Manual is part of Invisible Spaces of Parenthood: A collection of pragmatic propositions for a better future, a project that explores issues surrounding childcare in collaboration with local nurseries, childminders, children's centres and parent groups, and looks for new models and possibilities. This included setting up an exhibition and a workshop space at The Showroom for visitors to test out DIY designs for furniture and forms of play, some of which were gathered through an open call.
The manual contains eight especially commissioned essays as well as interviews, event excerpts, discussions and documentation from the exhibition.
To celebrate the Manual’s launch, Andrea Francke will speak to questions that remain unanswered, and enunciate the project’s connections to “domesticity” as explored in the Grand Domestic Revolution Goes On.
The questions will be cast by Lamis Bayar.
