An exhibition of Artists’ books and prints from the experimental art space Banner Repeater,including those recently acquired for abcD, DJCAD’s artists’ book collection, Dundee. The works exhibited are drawn from Banner Repeater’s Archive of Artists’ Publishing, the imprints: Banner Repeater paperbacks and the UN-PUBLISH series, and co-presented alongside selected books from the abcD collection.

Sited significantly on a working train station platform in Hackney, Banner Repeater is an experimental project space and reading room with an onsite public Archive dedicated to Artists Publishing and soon to be launched Digital Archive of Artists publishing: BookBlast. It has an ongoing arts programme of newly commissioned works with exhibitions, lectures, and performances, and publication launches. Driven by it’s location, Banner Repeater is dedicated to developing critical art in the natural interstice the platform and incidental footfall of over 4,000 passengers a day provides. Integral to its operation is the distribution of artists publishing straight into a main artery of the city of London.
