Almost exactly a year after launching, the Rapid Response Unit issues its end of project News Review.
Our goal was to commission leading and emerging artists to create art which could break into the mainstream news cycle, as well as reflect the stories of the people of Liverpool on a national platform.
The review tells the story of the work, brings together some of the art created and explores the highs and lows of this ambitious project.
RRU aimed to create new ways for audiences to engage with and understand the world around them and the forces driving the news we consume.
Featuring the work of ‘reporters’ including Jeremy Deller, Lubaina Himid, Charli XCX, Damon Albarn and Lily Cole (to name but a few), the RRU News Review is crucial reading for anyone who thinks there might be a better way to understand the world around them.
Here is the story of this year-long experiment https://readymag.com/u64337144/RRUNewsReview/
