Covid-19 Update | Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the Liverpool Biennial office is currently closed. This means that postage of items in our online store is temporarily unavailable.

Published as part of Liverpool Biennial 2016, The Two-Sided Lake brings together a wide range of contributions by artists, curators and writers to explore the idea of the ‘episode’ in film, literature and computation. The book reflects on how the episodic can open us up to new and strange discontinuities, and to new conversations about the past, the present, biography, collaboration, architecture, race, migration, trauma and exhibition-making.

Including texts by Zian Chen, Mark Z Danielewski, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Matthew Garrett, Xiaolu Guo, Ranjit Hoskote, Joasia Krysa, Lars Bang Larsen, Francesco Manacorda, Andrew Pickering, Denise Riley, Will Slocombe, Juliana Spahr / C.O. Grossman and Jocelyn Penny Small alongside contributions by all of Liverpool Biennial 2016’s artists.
