WORDS AS ART
Be inspired by Jenny Holzer’s artwork Inflammatory Essays and the texts and typography that we find around us in public spaces from graffiti to signage. Join the Strand Magazine team to create your own zines that capture the power of using words as art.
SPEAK YOUR TRUTH
Make your truths heard at our Truism table hosted by Season Butler, grab a seat and gather with fellow visitors for discussion and debate.
TRUISM CLOSE UP
Step into our filming station and voice your truth. Write your own Truism or choose one from a selection of texts, then bear witness in the screening room, presented by Late Night Library Club.

TONY COKES: COULD YOU VISIT ME IN DREAMS?
Drop in to the Starr Cinema to see artist Tony Cokes’s recent three-channel video installation, which offers an image of Vienna through music and collaged text appropriated from club descriptions, historical facts, anecdotes and tourist clichés. The installation is the first event in the weekend-long Tony Cokes: Sound Systems programme.
