Our former artist in remote residence, Harun Morrison has created an e-zine.
Interviews with Critical Workers (2020) is an e-zine comprising eleven interviews between artist Harun Morrison and a cross-section of individuals working within the UK public sector during the Covid-19 pandemic. They include surgeons, junior doctors, a social worker, a psychiatrist, a student nurse, a secondary school teacher, a biochemist, a speech therapist and a paramedic.
The publication has been co-edited with curator Lily Hall, designed by Rose Nordin and features illustrations by Sherwin Tija. It was made with the support of a Metal Remote Residency and in the context of Harun Morrison’s 2020 Wheatley Fine Art Fellowship (Birmingham School of Art & Eastside Projects).
