Newspaper House


The newspaper house was first assembled in London's Gillet Square and continued it's journey to the 5th Liverpool Biennial of contemporary arts in 2008. It now contains over 100,000 newspapers and, as a participatory project, has been worked on by dozens of people from several communities. This from the site:

"Erek places the Newspaper House between the private and the public, the real and the imagined, the work of art and the gallery. It purposely remains in a constant ‘work in progress’ stage, as life is itself. The relationship with real life is the reason he says:"One of my main aims with this project is to share it with participants who are not artists, and to embrace this process as natural as one lives his daily life."
