Leave to Remain- A Snapshot of Brexit

I have several works included in this new publication: Leave to Remain, A Snapshot of Brexit by Noni Stacey (Published by Lund Humphries, September 2023).

Noni references several of my works including Merrie Albion, Between the Acts and the Brexit Lexicon.

Art and photography have played a key role in capturing and reflecting on the conditions for the Brexit referendum. Illustrated by a range of work by artists including Cornelia Parker, Wolfgang Tillmans, David Shrigley, Tacita Dean and Jeremy Deller as well as the satirists Cold War Steve and Led By Donkeys, who offer fascinating insights into their work, along with ephemera such as campaign posters and leaflets, and more personal photographs which capture the searing impact of the vote on both UK and EU citizens, this impassioned and compelling book explores the role of the photograph and sometimes moving image in the ongoing consequences of this political cataclysm. From Jeremy Deller’s film of musicians protesting outside the House of Commons and Mark Duffy’s extraordinary photograph of a debate held inside, to portraits of those whose lives have been changed immeasurably, this art of protest brings together disparate aspects of the bitterly fought battle to remain and the consequences of the decision to leave the EU on 1 January 2021 and serves as a reminder of this political and social schism.

Noni Stacey is a visiting tutor at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK), and author of Photography of Protest and Community: The Radical Collectives of the 1970s, also published by Lund Humphries.
