Forthcoming Titles

16 Mar 2017

Please look out for our recently published and forthcoming titles.

Two new titles have recently hit the shelves! Who Runs the Artworld: Money, Power and Ethics, is the powerful new book from Brad Buckley and John Conomos. The book examines the economics and mythologies of today’s global artworld. It unmasks the complex web of relationships that now exist among high-profile curators, collectors, museum trustees and corporate sponsors, and the historic and ongoing complicity between the art and money markets. Who Runs the Artworld examines alternative models being deployed by curators and artists influenced by the 2008 global financial crisis and the international socio-political Occupy movement, with a particular focus on a renewed activism by artists. This activism is coupled with an institutional and social critique led by groups such as Liberate Tate, the Precarious Workers Brigade and Strike Debt.

One of our best-known authors, Dr Jim Lewis has written a new book, beautifully illustrated with full-colour images and photographs. From Ice Age to Wetlands – the Lea Valley’s Return to Nature was inspired by the imaginative community-focused project known as Walthamstow Wetlands. The Walthamstow Reservoirs in Waltham Forest, London are being transformed into an urban wetland nature reserve which will give visitors free access to the wildlife and industrial heritage of this historic area. 
In this book, Jim Lewis highlights the many and various major events that have helped to shape the Lea Valley and its environs. He also takes the opportunity to explain how scientists, engineers, developers and agriculturalists are coming together in their understanding of the importance of helping industry, agriculture and nature to co-exist by developing new ways of protecting our diminishing natural resources. Many of the stories within this book come together and demonstrate how the Lea Valley region is a microcosm of global environmental events that have serious implications for our planet. The Walthamstow Wetlands project is just one example of how the Lea Valley is working to transform the effects of its industrial past and give attention to the natural environment.
