Artists Borderpanic Compendium


Enabling a rich array of theatrical and artistic scores that can be performed at a moment’s notice, the Artist’s Borderpanic Compendium can be used by artists and non-artists in need of creative succour and survival.

Theatre makers and technicians all know that the one thing you can never mask/masque in a theatre is the EXIT sign. This creative compendium faces that virulent green EXIT sign full on, proffering an array of prêt–à–porter performance scores, performances for the page, artistic instructions for surviving border panic, strategic scripts, sketches, maps and images from an array of UK-based artists living in an emerging UK, a UK on the verge of an EXIT.

Curated by Curious, this book was created as part of DIY Progression, a series of projects developed from the Live Art Development Agency’s DIY programme in 2016/17 and made possible with support from the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Home Live Art, and Arts Council England.
