this broken piece of yard


In stock

this broken piece of yard collects contributions by participants to Cairo Clarke’s programme developed as part of her Curatorial Fellowship at LUX in 2020/1. Centering learning through practice and embedding Black feminist futurity at its core. Together we honour forms of knowledge production and dissemination that slip between the cracks, are formed on unstable ground, and take on multiple temporalities. Offerings are drawn from strands of theorising taking place in autonomous spaces, inserting the speculative into the present and holding space for the mess. this broken piece of yard was born out of exploring the history of LUX (formerly the London Filmmakers Co-op); navigating the lived conditions of Covid-19 and global uprisings in defence of Black life – together culminating in asking “what do we want from arts organisations now?” and “what do we want to bring into being?” Through writing commissions, audio projects, digital interventions, activities in nature and working groups this broken piece of yard is an experiment towards an entangled communal practice. We take exhaustion as a point of solidarity, slow-walking together, leaning on one another, collectively shaping this broken piece of yard.
