Beaconsfield's holistic vision is to provide a critical space for creative enquiry. Founded to occupy a niche between the institution, the commercial and the 'alternative' the charity maintains a unique venue which has provided a laboratory and presentation space for artists since 1995.
Set up in the former Lambeth Ragged School by artists with a track record for organising grass-roots events, Beaconsfield commissions, and is commissioned, nationally and internationally and has a history of innovative collaboration with other organisations and individuals, on and off-site.
The annual programme typically includes a range of exhibitions, an evening membership club and interventions in public space.

An installation and performance that uses telematics and live video streaming to dissolve creative public spaces in London and Berlin, bringing people from both cities into dynamic connection. Merged and overlaid, people and objects find they are both one thing and another, sometimes dissolving together to make a third, in a disconcerting, arresting and occasionally hilarious meditation on the instability of culture and identity.
Installation - Free
