HYPERTEXT: Books Beyond Bars – Felix McNulty in conversation with Sarah Jane Baker

Books Beyond Bars is a Manchester-based charity who send books and other educational materials, free of charge, to incarcerated LGBTQIA+ people across the United Kingdom. This year, HYPERTEXT is partnering with the charity to raise donations, and each exhibitor has the opportunity to donate unsold stock to the Books Beyond Bars inventory. In this talk, BBB volunteer Felix McNulty will be in conversation with Sarah Jane Baker, the UK’s longest-serving trans inmate. Baker was released from a cumulative 30 year sentence in 2019. She is involved in various art practices across illustration, cross stitching, publishing and music, and the talk will place these in context, exploring the experience of incarceration as a trans person through a focus on art practice as a liberatory practice.

HYPERTEXT is a virtual art book fair presented by Bound Art Book Fair in collaboration with Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool. Bound Art Book Fair is typically held at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, but took the decision to create an online event for 2020 in order to support our community in this time of crisis, and drive revenue to artists and publishers. The free public programme of online events co-programmed with Open Eye Gallery included panel discussions, lectures, slideshows and site-specific presentations, with a specific focus on new work, work in progress, or events which demonstrate innovative ways to present publications in digital space. HYPERTEXT is supported by Arts Council England.
