About B+B at Home

Visual arts at ACF continues until September 2003 with a hosting project by B+B (Sarah Carrington and Sophie Hope). This project extends the residency programme initated by the ACF Visual Arts Programme with the Office of Anti-Matter and Klub Zwei in 2001 and continued in 2002 with visits from Umelec, Museum in Progress and Dezentrale Medien.

B+B are inviting artists and curators from central Europe to take part in an informal programme of screenings, artist's presentations, talks and discussions. They aim to provide a networked space and a catalytic environment where artists can consider the opportunities and problematics of politically engaged practice on the threshold of EU enlargement.

Since 2000, B+B have developed a discursive curatorial practice which supports artists and their collaborators in situations ranging from residencies and community-based projects to acts of consultation and activism. For the duration of B+B at Home, the gallery space at the ACF will be their office, their archive and meeting room and is designed in collaboration with architects Greg Epps and Samson Adjei.

Participating artists have been invited to use the space to develop their practice and to connect with local networks, transforming the ACF into their base and working space. Together with their guests, B+B are investigating approaches to the translation of art practices which reflect a specific social and political context. They invite lively discussion and involvement from their London audiences.

Anthony Auerbach
I shall be taking a break from programming and organising to concentrate on my own work, but don't be surprised if evidence of my being side-tracked, enthused or seduced comes to light. There will also be some work to do behind the scenes aimed at securing the ACF visual arts programme as an artistically independent international platform for contemporary art and realising the potential we have demonstrated since 1999.
