Rutger Hauser The Swim Album Launch
The Swim was recorded in just one week of Summer 2018, at Velbastaður, Streymoy. The feel of Velbastaður features heavily in the music. A large, wood-panelled room, the coast road empty in both directions, the sea ever present outside the window.

GRITS Launch Party
Lili Hamlyn is the author of GRITS, her first book. GRITS is a memoir about the death of her mother, Sara, from breast cancer in 2016. The book focuses largely on the final weeks of Sara’s life, but also her childhood in the southern United States, and combines these with wider reflections on grief, care-giving, daughterhood and the aesthetic, ethical, and bodily imprints of illness. Lili grew up in London and now lives in Brooklyn. She envisions her next project having something to do with the cultural history of roadkill.

EXHIBITION/SCREENING at SET BERMONDSEY
Kahoon Projects II | Word of Mouth
Word of Mouth is the latest exhibition brought to you by Kahoon Projects
In installation format that evokes "rave space and attitude", artists Mitchell Vowles & Morgan Tipping exhibit two specially produced films.
It’s still banging in 2019 excavates online representations of youth cultures montaged across a timeline that explores the romance of the future as replaced by the romance of the past.
Manoeuvres is a digital film projection that explores contemporary experiences of working culture through a roaming atmospheric landscape.
Referencing the Kinks song and lyrics, Word of Mouth invites you to question "who are they to say the things they do?"
Kahoon Projects is a discursive platform that examines working-class identity in the 21st century through contemporary art practice. Kahoon Projects consists of a series of collaborative, interdisciplinary residencies where, for one month, two artists are paired to develop a conversation, and to create new work, about social class.
Kahoon Projects is supported by Arts Council England and Oxford Brookes University

The group describe their latest show as an experiment, a no-show shout, a moment, a shellshock in the form of an ancestral cosmic futuristic weekender, or better, an anti-pompous sculptural-textual-sonic exhibit/elixir taking place at SET DALSTON on 5th July from 6 pm – 10 pm.

EXHIBITION at SET LEWISHAM
Once Upon A Stage installation by Lizz Brady
"As one person enters the room, they trigger the sound of one person clapping. Two more people enter the room, and the sound of two more people begin to clap. The more people in the room, the more people are clapping. As people leave the room, the clapping resides."
Exploring ideas of dualism, 'object-oriented ontology' and Buddhism, Lizzy Brady's Once Upon A Stage shows how the mind and body are statements that cannot be divided, instead they experienced as different states of the whole

Becoming Secret Branch
Private view: 1 MAY 18.00 - 21.00
2 - 4 MAY 11.00 - 17.00
Please join us at SET for a celebratory exhibition by Secret Branch. We will be presenting a comprehensive display of our activities as sb, including artworks and actions, a small publication and some hopefully delicious drinks.Secret Branch was a make-believe gallery department and invigilator working-project. It was found in whispers, daydreams, doodles and dance routines. It lived in stretching our bodies and trying to bend time, in standing stories and standing stillness. A seemingly passive position, a tiny speck of light redirected, a root digging down beneath the concrete floor.
