A celebration of the very best in independent publishing, this event will include speakers, panel discussions, workshops and a fair. Volume is being produced by Capsule for the Library of Birmingham in collaboration with a number of Birmingham arts organisations, showcasing the wealth and breadth of publishing expertise in the region. Each organisation will produce a panel, contributing to some of the debates currently critical in the fields of publishing, bookmaking and writing.

Writing for Digital workshop: not losing the plot
Aimed at writers interested in the future of publishing, the workshop will address the role of the writer for digital platforms. No experience of technology required; this won’t be a technical session, rather an exploration of form and content for digital platforms.
Digital Technologies: Opportunities not Threats panel discussion
Panel discussion exploring experiments with digital technology and the possibilities they bring to publishing and writing.

Bill Drummond – Keynote Speech (12 Years, 25 Paintings, 100 Questions, & The 17)
Drummond has used various media in his practice including actions, music and words. His actions too numerous to list, some more infamous than others; his music from the multi million selling KLF to the choral music of The 17; the words have accumulated into a pile of books.
Artist, placemaker and designer of the Discovery Season’s flagship space The Pavillion – Morag Myerscough will be presenting an instinctive journey through colours, patterns and her design practice, accompanied by fellow designer and collaborator Luke Morgan and his band The Highliners (including Ginge, former Meteors drummer) creating a punk rock design performance!

Haze and Fog

Exhibition Launch
Friday 20 September, 6–8pm
Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR

Everyone is welcome at the launch of ‘Haze and Fog’ a solo exhibition by Cao Fei in the main gallery, ‘Dear Lynda’ in the second gallery and ‘A Demonstration of Possibilities’ in Flatfile. Exhibitions continue until 16 November.

‘Haze and Fog’ is a new type of zombie movie set in modern China. The film will explore how the collective consciousness of people living in the time of what the artist calls “magical metropolises” emerges from seemingly tedious, mundane, day-to-day life.

In the Second Gallery we present ‘Dear Lynda…’, an international touring exhibition that examines the importance of maverick British curator, writer, art historian and patron Lynda Morris.

Sophie Bullock, Freya Dooley and Sebastian Jefford, GO West resident artists collaborate on ‘A Demonstration of Possibilities’ the latest iteration of Flatfile, a plan-chest sited permanently within the gallery.

Flatfile: A Demonstration of Possibilities
21 September – 16 November 2013
Preview Friday 20 September, 6–8pm
Flatfile, Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR

Eastside Projects presents A Demonstration of Possibilities, an exhibition by Sophie Bullock, Freya Dooley and Sebastian Jefford in Flatfile, a plan-chest sited permanently within the gallery.

A Demonstration of Possibilities is a framework that is open to movement and alteration. In it Flatfile is converted into a growing and interactive toolbox where works appear as instructional or functional but for potentially unknowable or absurd uses.

For A Demonstration of Possibilities Sophie, Freya and Sebastian will present a collaboratively-developed whole work made of video, text and sculptural components, in which they respectively specialise.

Throughout September Sophie, Freya and Sebastian will undertake GO West, an ESP residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall. GO West gives artists from Spike Island Associates (Bristol), ESP (Eastside Projects, Birmingham) and WARP (G39, Cardiff) time and space to develop new ideas, connections and networks by spending time working together.

This is the fifth iteration of Flatfile, a project initiated as a platform for participants to make new connections through the development of new work.
