“They’ve Taken our Ghettos:
A Punk History of the Woodberry Down Estate”
Exhibition Launch Party, Thurs, 2 Jul, 6-11pm, Free Entry
Bar by Craving Coffee (card/cash), Food by Pink Cactus (cash only)
Exhibition Runs 2-26 July
This exhibition brings together prints, illustrations, photographs and text, created by a diaspora of punks who lived as squatters on the Woodberry Down Estate in the Manor House area of London in the 80s and 90s. This show was conceived in response to the estate’s current redevelopment, which recognizes only consenting voices in its gentrification process.
This timely exhibition portrays aspects of an existence built on dissent, autonomy and communality, as an alternative to the neo-liberal values of ruthless individualism which held sway at that time. While the lifestyle was far from idyllic, at times dystopian, at its best it offered unmediated freedom and a real alternative to its participants.
Reflecting the principles of the community itself, no distinction is made between professional and amateur art and writing. And while some of the contributions are by known artists, writers and musicians, the rationale behind the exhibition is to present an expression of a life lived from those who lived it.
We will have an opening party on 2 July, with the bar also open for craft beer, cocktails, wine and food.
One chance to see the highly-praised exhibition about Tottnm workplaces and skills threatened by development – it showed in Clerkenwell before, now here is one chance to see it in Tottenham. OK maybe not quite SoTo but still relevant.
Tuesday 30 June One-day showing of Employment Land Portfolio: Drawings of Tottenham at 12 White Hart Lane beside the entrance to the Peacock Estate.
From 12 noon – 8pm. Please come by any time or aim for 6 – 8pm
