TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU, Love Letters to a (Post)Europe is an intimate collection of letters, poetry and postscripts by artists and writers that seeks to connect, exchange and witness through the action, idea or form of a love letter.
In the midst of rapid change, polarisation and crises of social imagination in the UK and mainland Europe, TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU suggests that small acts of imagination and friendship can become radical interventions.
TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU builds on the Love Letters to a (Post)Europe programme that took place at Bios, Athens in 2015, in which twenty six artists created short works in an act of gifting and assembly. The publication includes contributions from Kate Adams, Demosthenes Agrafiotis, Brian Catling & David Tolley, cris cheek, Robin Deacon, Tim Etchells, Alec Finlay, Matthew Goulish, Guy Harries, Steven C Harvey, Catherine Hoffmann, Wendy Houstoun, Mikhail Karikis, Brian Lobel, Claire MacDonald, Georgios Makkas, Ivana Müller, Mariela Nestora, Kira O’Reilly, Florence Peake, Erica Scourti, Maria Sideri, Anna Sherbany, Jungmin Song, Yoko Tawada, Nikki Tomlinson, a collaborative text by Lisa Alexander and Mary Paterson, and an essay by artist and researcher Claire MacDonald.
TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU is published by the Live Art Development Agency. The project is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and has been developed in collaboration with Live Art Development Agency and Artsadmin with support from Counterpoints Arts.
