the southlondonmuseum launched and founded in 1999 presents the work of Alma Tischlerwood, co-founder of art collective, as well as ongoing collaborations in dialogue. Visits by appointment only. Thank you


a one-day symposium on 14th July focusing on the relationship between urban photography and the politics of ‘the fake’ in a time of shifting perspectives around what constitutes ‘the real’. Photography has for some time struggled with core questions around how the world of experience and perception relates to the world ‘out there’? This symposium will question, challenge and expand on some key issues relating to politically engaged photography as part of the ongoing Cities of Light symposia organized by Goldsmiths, The Sorbonne and UPA – The Urban Photographers’ Association.

11:00 – 16:00 followed by drinks reception – Tickets here:


FLOWER POWER is an art event and workshops dedicated to the Brockley area, conceived and devised by Arthouse members, Alma Tischlerwood (curator & artist) and Heather Steed (artist & writer). Flower Power addresses complex issues surrounding the relationship between communities and their local environments. Flower Power is designed to kickstart an on-going process of art based social engagement and care for our environment, connecting local communities with an opportunity to experience different art practices.

We like to thank the Brockley Assembly for funding FLOWER POWER

‘The Machine For Saying Sorry’ is an installation work by four people from different practices and interests. In this sense it may appear to link art, design, technology and music.

However, it was not driven by any pre-determined purpose, issue, crusade, or funding requirement. So, what might this artwork be ‘about’? Well, perhaps a clue is in the title, although art often defies meaningful description, or categorization.

Since the 1970s, while economic growth has been immense, more than half of the vertebrate animal population has been lost. Some experts believe that the human species itself may go the same way. At the same time, the hype surrounding developments in robotics, AI (artificial intelligence) and ‘Big Data’ is getting as much attention as global extinctions. We are very confused. While some welcome a technological revolution that will save us from the drudgery of work, others fear that robots will, in some fiendish way, enslave us all.

Recently, it has become fashionable for AI experts to claim that machines will become empathetic. But this reveals a failure to grasp the difference between living systems and machines. Similarly, we often hear calls for politicians to apologise. But how many people know that apologising and saying sorry have almost opposite meanings? The ancient Greek word ‘apologia’ (ἀπολογία’) referred to the public defence of a religious belief. This is very different from expressing heartfelt remorse (i.e. as in saying ‘sorry’). Never mind, we might still need someone (or some thing) to excuse us, once we’re gone…]

Everyone remembers ‘Apocalypse Now’, but only movie aficionados will recall the original British film “Apo-Calypso Now” (1959), starring Harry Belafonte, Joan Rutherford, Tommy Steel, Hattie Jacques and Marlon Brando. Steel is unforgettable as the brooding and laconic SAS officer who finds himself behind enemy lines with only a parachute and a small box of percussion instruments. What possible relevance could this have for pre-Brexit Britain in 2017? Well, in today’s spoilt and cynical world we need that cheery, pre-war spirit. If you can’t stand May, or can’t stand up to Trump, do a minute’s defiant stand-up. Bring a bad poem, long-forgotten joke or ditty. Keep Calm and Wear Camouflage in case you’re recognized (e.g. shifty make-up, appalling clothing). The World is fucked and we’re all going to die. But why let it get you down? Get down and boogie.

The group exhibition: SELF-ORGANISATION curator: Antonio Ortega. The Fundació Joan Miró 16/02/2017 — 21/05/2017

curator, Antonio Ortega at Miró Foundation Barcelona 16/02/ & 21/05/2017 Self-organization includes a number of international artists, including Gilbert and George, Gustav Metzger, Joan Miró, Adam Nankervis (Museum Man), Yoko Ono, Michelangelo Pistoletto. The exhibition is also an attempt to understand recent art and confirm the current validity of these dynamics.
Self-management traces do it yourself practices from the pioneering artists of the sixties to the present. Through strategies that could be considered self-managed, these artists have taken control of their production and the emission and reception of their works with gestures of empowerment that have resulted in new ways of relating to the artistic system. The works of the exhibition form a constellation of practices and gestures that constitute a defense of the continued power of the imagination and the creativity.

Tischler Wood’s Knot event is a hands on, participative knot performance and installation that will take place at the Tea Hut, next to the Creek in Greenwich.
