The Archeology of Hope

5 January, 2018

The Archaeology of Hope was launched on the winter solstice of 2016, with an invitation to a game that culminated on the summer solstice of 2017, which included the participation of three members of Leeds Surrealist Group.

The book is a catalogue of the results of the game, and a record of the exhibition and performance ritual that sprang from it.
