Photoworks Festival 2020 – Propositions for Alternative Narratives – launches on September 24 and we can now reveal some of the first images of our Festival in a box. It is a unique and limited edition object; a portable festival where you become the curator and decide where and how to install it.

Designed by Swiss artists Gilliane Cachin and Joshua Schenkel, the box includes artworks by Farah Al Qasimi, Lotte Andersen, Poulomi Basu, Roger Eberhard, Ivars Gravlejs, Pixy Liao, Alix Marie, Ronan Mckenzie, Sethembile Msezane, Alberta Whittle and Guanyu Xu, and a manifesto by Queer History Now.

Each of the artworks can be installed on your own walls: at home, in your office, in a gallery, in your classroom or with your community. There are an infinite amount of ways in which you can install the festival. Use nails, tape or clips to hang in your preferred space. There is a wall label for each, giving you more information about the artist and their work.

Hang it as a group with friends, with fellow artists or solo. Hang it now for the Photoworks Festival (24 September to 25 October) and hang it again somewhere else in the future. Or keep it, folded, as a special object, in your bookcase or in your studio.

Also included are texts by Simon Baker, Julia Bunnemann, Pamila Gupta, Shoair Mavlian, Lucy Soutter and Raquel Villar-Pérez.
