at HG HQ we are all very saddened about X Marks the Bökship closing it’s doors at the end of the month. it’s always been an excellently stocked and interesting place run by some very lovely people. we hope that all of those involved land on their feet and aren’t put off any future endeavours by the increasingly shitty rent situation in london. it’s rare an independent bookshop provides a platform for so many genuine literary/art ventures and goes beyond just being a point of sale. bökship will be missed.

we feel that this timely text will surpass any new aesthetic manifesto, e-flux theory, digi-feminism or genre consensus.
if you weren’t placing your bets on Rub Bolton gallery being a serious contender for ‘worst gallery in London’ then this interview should change your mind.
