Rent is Too High.
As the Housing Crisis deepens we see;
> government policies of Cuts to Housing Benefit
>> the Bedroom Tax introduced
>>> regeneration that equals unaffordable 'Affordable' Housing
Made Possible by Squatting presents an archive of histories and stories of how Londoners have met their needs and desires through squatting the empty buildings which fill our city.
With over 30 stories from Crossroads Womens Centre, to Islington Housing Co-op, Ramparts, and Clifton Mansions these histories will be traced through a series of film, illustration, photos, archive posters, workshops, and more!
The exhibition itself aims to be part of this tradition- but it happens in the context of repression. With the squatting of residential buildings already outlawed last year, and the further ban on commercial squats looming on the horizon, there has never been a more necessary time to celebrate squatting histories.
>>> when Housing is a Luxury, Squatting is a Necessity
Better to Squat than let Homes Rot<<<
