In this podcast, Flo Brooks and Polly Wright talk to Seán Elder (featuring contribution from Emma McKinney) about their chosen book titles and much more including distributing book titles as a form of creating community, public transport in the rural and self-led mystery tours.
We invited three independent publishers and distributors, working across the UK, to respond to The Daily Winds Tourist Information Centre. As well as displaying three titles in the gallery space, Black Lodge Press (Yorkshire), Public House Birmingham and Makina Books (London) offer insight into their chosen book titles through anecdotes, feeling inspired and working with texts.
Seán Elder and Emma McKinney have come together as Public House to bring more critical conversation, artists’ film, and collaboration to Birmingham. They are interested in responsibility and support within the curatorial, and hope to develop meaningful relationships within long-term projects, in ethical partnerships, and still have time to go swimming some mornings to keep a clear head whilst spinning metaphorical plates.
This is a part of a wider series of lunchtime podcasts in which artists, curators and publishers discuss how they’ve developed their creative communities.
