Event description

Description

Please join us for an evening of readings, screenings, music and drinks as we launch Failed States, a journal of indeterminate geographies.

To mark the occasion there will be readings and elaborations from several contributors, (including Beth Bramich, Bryony Quinn, Isabel Taube, Jeremy Atherton Lin, Lucy Watson, Luke O'Sullivan, Mary Hannity, Nina Schack Kock, Paul Clinton, Richard Dodwell, and Thea Smith), a screening of a short film shot on St. Helena by filmmaker Joseph Curran made especially for the event, a new work by artist Sam Williams, and Fire Island-based film clips courtesy of artist and Little Joe editor Sam Ashby. Copies of the issue will be available to buy.

For more information about the journal visit failedstates.xyz

To pre-order and support, please take a look at our Kickstarter campaign.

Failed States Island Launch is a part of Deptford X Fringe 2017




Failed States is a biannual journal combining original short writing on place and contemporary artworks. For each issue contributors are asked to respond to a broad theme: a terrain considered to possess qualities of amorphousness, wildness, instability, collapse, liminality, peripherality and/or delineation.

Contributors to the first issue include Anh Do, Beth Bramich, Bryony Quinn, Cally Spooner, Calvin Seibert, Carrie Friese, Doris Ho-Kane, Eli Diner, Euan Macdonald, Fi Churchman, Gabriella Beckhurst, Isabel Taube, Jasleen Kaur, Jay Simpson, Jeremy Atherton Lin, Jesse Hewit, Joseph Curran, Joyce Dixon, Julie Lindow, Lucy Watson, Luke O'Sullivan, Martin John Callanan, Mary Hannity, Mary Manning, Matt Connors, Matt Wolf, Monique Mouton, Niki Ford, Nina Schack Kock, Olivia Laing, Oscar Gaynor, Paul Clinton, Richard Dodwell, Sam Ashby, Sam Williams and Thea Smith.

Art directed by Sandy McInnes, published and edited by Jamie Atherton.
