On Wednesday 13 July, the South London Gallery welcome Iphgenia Baal and Ben Graville to discuss their new book Compliances: A New Fear with writer and filmmaker Juliet Jacques.
Exposing the misgivings of a city living under banal law, and the involuntary reactionism of its inhabitants, Compliances documents, through pictures and prose, a new sense of fear; a faux-nostalgia for a city that never existed.
Free to attend but booking is required.
