The Future Visions of History Newspaper has been distributed across Liverpool today!
A real anti-capitalism of culture stance has been taken with the paper, and I was really pleased to be included. In fact as it turns out I am actually the centrefold! Now that is something to sing about. The paper is a collaborative curatorial project by Penny Whitehead and Daniel Simpkins, commissioned by Open Eye Projects and selected by Rebecca Lennon.
"Over the course of a day during the 2008 Liverpool Biennial, this project will spread, like a virus throughout the streets of the city. Local, national and international practitioners representing a range of disciplines including visual art, activism, architecture, cultural theory and social geography will contribute varied and engaging responses to issues surrounding Liverpool, its recent history and its future, providing an antidote to the city’s hegemonic literature, art and culture."

My piece for the paper was the Long Photograph of Venmore Street, Anfield and a textual element consisting of the lyrics of the Liverpool FC anthem 'You'll Never Walk Alone.'
