Join us for the launch of 1984: art and politics, a website that hosts an ongoing project that takes a slice in time to gather collective memories of art and politics in the year 1984. Practice-based researcher, Sophie Hope, has been co-hosting dinners around the world with people who were active artistically and politically in 1984. The website documents the recorded audio conversations of dinner guests in the UK, Singapore, Australia and South Africa. This event celebrates the launch of the website and acts as a listening event for attendees to experience an audio collage of voices reflecting on art and politics of this period. The website has been partly funded by The Hub, Birkbeck. If you would like to find out more about the project, have any feedback or are interested in co-hosting a dinner, please contact Sophie: s.hope@bbk.ac.uk This launch will follow the working seminar, ‘1979 Revisited’: The Cultural Production of ‘Structures of Feeling’ under Thatcherism | Friday 21 November 2014 | 1.00 – 5.00pm | Keynes Library, Room 114, 43 Gordon Square This event is free and open to all, but booking is essential - book your place here
