A screening of the film The Tempest Society followed by a conversation between the artist and The Showroom’s Director Elvira Dyangani Ose. This event launches Bouchra Khalili’s new artist book The Tempest Society published by Book Works, which gathers together interviews, essays, rare archival material and translations, to revisit and resuscitate the forgotten heritage of ‘Al Assifa’ – a politicised theatre group born out of the struggles of the Mouvement des Travailleurs Arabes (MTA), Palestine, anti-colonialism, and workers’ and immigrant labour rights. 

Access: The Showroom has a step-free entrance on Boscobel Street to the ground floor Gallery space and a platform lift to its first floor Studio space. The first floor is not suitable for wheelchair users, as currently safe evacuation cannot be ensured. 

Please if required contact the gallery in advance of your visit for more access information on 020 7724 4300.

Filming: Please note that the events will be filmed.
