Stewart Home is an artist, filmmaker, writer and cultural activist living in London. His anti-art practices have given rise to seven published books of solo cultural commentary and four edited anthologies, alongside fifteen novels, poetry and short story collections. Since 1980 Home has developed a body of on going performance, prank and film works, exhibiting at City Racing and workfortheeyetodo, alongside collaborating on projects with Imprint 93. His cultural output forms a significant archive of counter-cultural activities, unearthing and collecting unknown radical histories such as 'Black Mask – Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers', the reworking of Lettrist Cinema and developing writing projects such as Book Works' 'Semina' series.
Curator and publisher, Mathieu Copeland lives and works in London. Recent exhibitions include 'A Retrospective of Closed Exhibitions' at the Kunsthalle Fribourg (2016) and 'The Exhibition of a Dream' at the Gulbenkian Foundation (2017). In 2014 he realised 'The exhibition of a film' – an exhibition as a feature film for cinemas and edited the critically acclaimed anthology and manifest publication 'Choreographing Exhibitions'. In 2017, he co-edited the radical anthology 'The Anti-Museum' and his forthcoming publications include 'Gustav Metzger – Writings 1953 – 2016'. Copeland has contributed the text in the accompanying publication for ’Shit and Doom - NO!art’ exhibition.
