Lancement de livre / Book Launch

‘The Art of Dissent: Adventures in London’s Olympic State’ brings together a body of work that has emerged in response to the arrival of the Olympics in East London.

Artists, writers, film makers, academics, photographers and activists intervene in the dominant discourse, language and images of regeneration and the Games. The book examines both the political economy of the mega-event and the silenced history of Lower Lea valley, making a powerful case against the politics of erasure and the corporatisation of urban space. Issues of land grab, displacement, military urbanism and exceptional measures of legal protection are explored through essays, images, poetry, fiction and installations.

Edited by Hilary Powell and Isaac Marrero. Published by Marshgate Press. Designed bySee Studio.  2012.
