Abandon Normal Strategies

A limited edition printed artwork that will be delivered to your home, Abandon Normal Strategies aspires to galvanise alternative approaches, connections and unexpected courses of action. Featuring strategies by Nora Al-Badri, Mark Amerika, Wafaa Bilal, Julie Freeman, Laura Juo-Hsin Chen, Julian Oliver, Joshua Sofaer, TRES, UBERMORGEN and Addie Wagenknecht.


Over the years AND have established a programme of research through practice and participation focusing on the areas of New Cinema, Cultural Activism and Connecting Art and Science. Through research projects we create a space for high-level industry based knowledge exchange and wider public engagement, conversation and debate.
