Tate Liverpool Workshop

Frequently Asked Questions by Anthony Luvera and Gerald Mclaverty

Frequently Asked Questions was first presented in 2014 as part of Assembly, a larger body of work by Anthony Luvera made with over 50 homeless people living in Brighton and Hove. Seeking a way to present research about support and services available to homeless people, Luvera struck up a collaboration with a participant called Gerald Mclaverty.

This involved sending email correspondence to council representatives in over 50 cities and towns across the UK, written from Mclaverty’s experience of homelessness, requesting information about services provided in each locality. Throughout 2017 Luvera and Mclaverty undertook a new round of enquires to local authorities to form part of State of the Nation.

Frequently Asked Questions invites audiences to contemplate the information and range of responses, and how it provides a picture of how services both help and hinder people, and gives an insight into the challenges and realities faced by the most marginalised individuals in society as they attempt to access systems of care.

State of the Nation is generously supported by Coventry University.
