A mini festival of visual and performance art at the historic St Augustine’s Tower in Hackney, organised by Degrees of Freedom in October 2018 Images from Liz Brown's FoIC DNA project, October 2018
“The space in which we live, which draws us out of ourselves, in which the erosion of our lives, our time and our history occurs, the space that claws and gnaws at us...” Michel Foucault
An international group of 25 visual and performance artists explore concepts of space and place, touching on ideas from Einstein, Foucault, Bachelard & Debord. The Festival aimed to overcome the “banalisation” of the Tower as a familiar architectural presence, and encourage dialogue between the local community and the fabric and history of the building.
