Book Launch: Meet Me in the Present

WED 28 JUN 2017, 6-9.30PM, Clore Studio, Fox Reception, Orozco Gardens.

Overview

Join us for the book launch of Meet Me in the Present: Documents and their Afterlives. Written and edited by postgraduate students on the Critical Writing in Art and Design programme at the Royal College of Art, Meet Me in the Present has been an exercise in collaboration and social exchange. In this spirit, the book’s authors invite you to an evening of readings, music and screenings (including works by Stefan Szczelkun, a contributor to the book).

Meet Me in the Present: Documents and their Afterlives is a call for public spaces, and for public ideas in an age when ‘the commons’ is increasingly under attack. A collection of essays, this book explores the diverse ways in which documents produced by marginalized groups and traces left by radical political actions have been collected, preserved and, sometimes, displayed. What kind of archival practices keep the material traces and documents of past events and experiences alive and effective today?

This event is now fully booked, for further enquiries please call 020 7703 6120.
