Join us as we celebrate the opening of '...how is it towards the east?' an exhibition and a month long programme of talks, workshops and screenings at Calvert 22, curated by Elizaveta Butakova, Marina Doritis and Lily Hall. Taking its title from William Morris's News from Nowhere, ‘...how is it towards the east?' is a month-long exhibition comprising talks, workshops, screenings and new commissions at Calvert 22. In collaboration with a host of local organisations and individuals this rich programme makes visible a body of research into the histories, both personal and collective, of the Calvert 22 building and surrounding area. Fostering conversations around how histories are written and recorded in print and on screen ‘..how is it towards the east?' critically examines modes of self-organisation and the traces of Eastern European and Russian immigration in the East End. Contributors: Hannah Black, Tessa Brown and Cathy Lane, Adam Chodzko, Stefan Dickers, Germano Facetti, Andrew Kötting, David Mabb, Michael Marriott, Nada Prlja, David Rosenberg, Marina Vishmidt, Alfred & Ben White, Dr Sarah J. Young. In collaboration with the Bishopsgate Institute, the Courtauld Institute of Art, the East London Fawcett Society, Cinenova, Hato Press and X Marks the Bökship
