What's happening with B+B?

While Sarah and Sophie are currently working independently, aspects of B+B remain active and can be accessed via this website and by contacting Sophie on sophie[at symbol]welcomebb.org.uk.

The B+B Archive has moved to Brockley where it continues to grow and develop. The archive contains material on socially engaged, activist and process-based art practices from the UK and the rest of the world. Jennifer Maddock, a new addition to the B+B team is working to make the archive more accessible. If you would like to find out more or want to view the material, contact Jennifer at B+B on bandb[at symbol]welcomebb.org.uk.

B+B are also active in carrying out evaluations and consultation. B+B are currently evaluating ‘Art U Need’ with Commissions East and Bob and Roberta Smith and ‘Peninsula’ with Independent Photography.

Upcoming B+B collaborations include a contributuion on Tenantspin for the forthcoming Arts Council England publication ‘Art of Negotiation’ and a chapter that reworks the B+B archive for a new publication about Lucy Orta's practice (published by Blackdog).

Sophie is currently working on Reunion, an ongoing programme of meetings, residencies and exhibitions between people based in the UK, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Italy and Macedonia to address the political potential of art practices in Europe (http://www.reunionprojects.org.uk/). She is also currently in residence on the Beyond Action Research Programme in Leidsche Rijn a large new housing development near Utrecht in The Netherlands where she is working with residents to co-author a play about a future archaeology of Leidsche Rijn, that charts the community's self destruction due to the heightened importance given to the individual, their private property and general satisfaction in life.

Sarah has been working as part of the Public Programmes team at the Serpentine Gallery on public events and projects.
