Please note: as you will no doubt be aware COVID-19 is leading to many events being cancelled or postponed. Please check with the organisers of any event listed here to confirm it is going ahead as planned.

Join us to hear Alberto Duman in conversation with Gillian Swan and Tom Cordell, to celebrate the recent publication of Regeneration Songs: Sounds of Investment and Loss, published by Repeater Books and co-edited by Alberto Duman, Dan Hancox, Malcom James and Anna Minton.

The book brings together twenty-seven leading artists, writers and academics to analyse one of the most drastic urban development plans in world history, the ‘Regeneration Supernova’ of East London. The book explores how places are turned into simple stories for packaged investment opportunities, how people living in those places relate to those stories, and how music and art can render those stories in many different ways.

Alberto Duman will be in conversation with Gillian Swan and Tom Cordell, two of the contributors of the book, discussing the relationship between art and capital in London’s urban regeneration programmes, and the co-opting of cultural production by property finance.
