The Right & Freedom to a Home

New publication for Freedom Festival Hull 2016 & Beyond Words Exhibition

15.5 x21.5 cm silk screen printed cover, photocopied pages and pull out typeset broadside. £7 (p&p)

front coverThe Right & Freedom to a Home is concerned with homelessness and the housing crisis.  A hand bound zine detailing displacement, eviction and gentrification with solutions offered by campaigners & social activists, this cheaply, photocopied, pamphlet style publication, with screen printed cover, integrates traditional typesetting techniques into a contemporary publication. It connects with activist campaigns using social media, twitter & blogs, to capture and record the reaction and effects to social cleansing.  The zine aims to highlight the humanitarian crisis in Europe and states the freedom to have a home is a human right.  Stephen Pritchard, a PhD researcher at Northumbria University provides political clarity in his introduction, challenging the role of artists.

The publication for Beyond Words, was commissioned by the Freedom Festival Arts Trust and Hull Culture and Leisure Library Services, in association with Book Works. Funded by James Reckitt Library Trust.
