Savage Messiah: Transmissions from a discarded future

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Laura Oldfield Ford
Chair: Nick Byrne

Recorded on 14 November 2011 in New Theatre, East Building.

In this talk, artist, writer and zine maker Laura Oldfield Ford will be showing traces and relics from her psychogeographic drifts around the ruined landscapes of London's hinterlands.

This event marks the publication of Laura's new book Savage Messiah.

Laura Oldfield Ford, originally from Halifax, West Yorkshire, studied at the Royal College of Art and has become well known for her politically active and poetic engagement with London as a site of social antagonism. She exhibits and teaches across Europe and America.
