TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU, Love Letters to a (Post)Europe





Read Introduction by Lisa Alexander

Here. Now. A place to continue.

TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU, Love Letters to a (Post)Europe is an intimate collection of letters, poetry and postscripts by artists and writers that seeks to connect, exchange and witness through the action, idea or form of a love letter.

TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU builds on the Love Letters to a (Post)Europe programme that took place at Bios, Athens (2015). In the midst of rapid change, polarisation and crises of social imagination in the UK and mainland Europe, TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU suggests that small acts of imagination and friendship can become radical interventions.

The publication features contributions from Kate Adams, Demosthenes Agrafiotis, Brian Catling & David Tolley, cris cheek, Robin Deacon, Tim Etchells, Alec Finlay, Matthew Goulish, Guy Harries, Steven C Harvey, Catherine Hoffmann, Wendy Houstoun, Mikhail Karikis, Brian Lobel, Claire MacDonald, Georgios Makkas, Ivana Müller, Mariela Nestora, Kira O’Reilly, Florence Peake, Erica Scourti, Maria Sideri, Anna Sherbany, Jungmin Song, Yoko Tawada, Nikki Tomlinson, a collaborative text by Lisa Alexander and Mary Paterson, and an essay by Claire MacDonald.

The book will be launched at an event at the Live Art Development Agency (LADA) on Thursday 4 October at 7pm with Demosthenes Agrafiotis, Lisa Alexander, Season Butler, Catherine Hoffmann, Claire MacDonald, Ivana Müller, Mary Paterson and Maria Sideri.


This will be followed by two further events at Artsadmin, London on the 5 and 6 October. These events are gatherings of love and dissent curated by Lisa Alexander.
