Study Room in Exile Launch Event

The Study Room in Exile is LADA's satellite Study Room housed in the Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home in Liverpool.

Drawing on passages from LADA publications, the Institute and LADA launched a new adventure with a performative paper entitled 'Study.Room.In.Exile'. The launch event  also kick started a new initiative 'Readings in Exile'. This is an invitation to the public to read extracts from the publications for our new audio archive. 

Study Room in Exile will host four public events a year: September, January, March and June. A study room for all seasons!

The Winter event will take place on Friday 29 January 2016: A 'Motherhood and Live Art' gathering. 

The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home is run from a four bedroom town house on a new estate in Anfield after having been run out of a housing association property in Everton, Liverpool (2008-2013). It is open to visits, proposals for projects, performances, discussions, screenings, residencies, exhibitions, actions and presentations. Email them at [email protected]

The Study Room is the core resource of LADA and is a free, open access research facility used by artists, students, curators, academics and other arts professionals. Located in Hackney Wick, London, the Study Room houses one of the largest publicly accessible libraries of Live Art related videos, DVDs and publications in the UK.]

Documentation of the launch event is available here.
