We are very happy to announce the date of the 2014 London Radical Bookfair. This year we are joining forces with the Alternative Press Fair and taking over all 3 floors of the Bishopsgate Institute. What’s more the Bishopsgate Institute are also hosting a series of political talks in the run up to the bookfair. There’ll be lots of announcements to come, but in the meantime put the date firmly in your diary, and we look forward to seeing you there.

If you are a radical bookseller or publisher and would like a stall please contact Nik at Housmans Bookshop by email nik[at]housmans.com

New Work: The Subway Man

4. The Subway Man Alice Woods

I actually saw a man wearing these trousers on the subway in NY. I felt I should recreate them as best I could.

Whether it was a bold statement of patriotism, a sort of ‘fuck you America’, or merely a convenient way of avoiding mending a broken zipper, we shall never know.

He took the decision to sew an American eagle flying before an American flag over his crotch. Perhaps that is all we need to know.

Boiler Room / The Buro Fur Bestimmte Dinge

After a month in New York I have now arrived at The Büro of the Institut Für Alles Möngliche in Berlin. I will be making work here for the next 4 weeks, centered around experiences with Occupy groups and my time with Alt Banking in New York. The work is not made yet but the flyer is! There will be an open studio on the final weekend in March but you can visit me anytime.
