Charles Asprey – Tyers St (Buzzer 4)

130 Tyers Street

London SE11 5JE

 

Directions: Charles Asprey – Tyers St is a 2 minute walk from Vauxhall Underground Station, which is on the Victoria line.

 

Issue 21 features poetry editor Kayo Chingonyi’s interview with acclaimed poet Claudia Rankine, exploring race in America, literary form, and the relationship between poetry and national emergency. The issue also presents an interview with pioneering performance artist Joan Jonas, in advance of her major retrospective at the Tate Modern in 2018. Issue 21 also features an essay by Hatty Nestor on Chelsea Manning and the ethical implications of visual representations of prisoners, Alev Scott’s reportage from the Balkans exploring the legacy of the Ottoman Empire, and a piece by Megan Hunter about writing and pregnancy. For the first time, we also present a roundtable on the theme of work: four writers and artists with experience of working as cycle couriers, waiters, in construction and in call centres engage in an open and wide-ranging discussion about the way our working lives impact on our identities, vulnerability in the workplace, collaboration, mentorship and care work. This will be the first in a new series of roundtable discussions. Issue 21 also features new fiction from Johanna Hedva, Danielle Dutton and Sascha Macht (translated from German by Amanda DeMarco), poetry by Anthony Joseph, Kate Potts and Meryl Pugh, and artwork by Feng Li, Sanam Khatibi and Chris Succo.
