Hilary Powell and Isaac Marrero-Guillamon, The Art of Dissent: Adventures in London’s Olympic state

IssueJuly-August 2012
Review by Emily Johns

ImageA rich record of creative intervening, interfering and interpreting the physical and psychic destruction of East London by the Olympic monster. The contributions to this book speak in a language verbal and visual that poignantly describes the true, felt experience of state-sport-sponsored obliteration of communities and personal worlds.

The book is also an important reminder of 1000 people evicted from homes and businesses in 2005 to make way for bigger business.

A powerful and beautiful book.
