HOME Publications was developed by Sarah Perks and Bren O’Callaghan, following on the strong history of bold publications via Cornerhouse and working with the Cornerhouse Publications distribution team. HOME’s first Artistic Director (Visual Art) Sarah Perks, now an Artistic Associate at HOME, also Professor of Visual Art at Manchester School of Art, facilitated the academic research which ran through the programme for its opening cycle 2015-2018 including commissions, art forms developments, publications and presentations internationally. www.sarahperks.co.uk
Since opening, HOME Publications has produced twelve original books and supported others. In 2017 the unique anthology Dark Habits caused a minor sensation when the printers refused its provocative writing, whilst Subkultura perfectly accompanied our centenary of the Russian Revolution exhibition The Return of Memory. A successful collaboration with Hayward Publishing has resulted in books with artists John Walter, Rachel Maclean and AL and AL. Forthcoming titles include One Day the Sadness Will End (Declan Clarke and Sarah Perks) and Ceremony by Phil Collins.
Current highlight: John Walter’s CAPSID featuring Bren O’Callaghan ahead of the exhibition opening Fri 11 Nov 2018 at HOME.
