this is a space for artists & poets of all different media to present works & to express ideas, comments, scraps, notes, rants, statements on anything & in any way they please. I wanted to have a space where artists & poets from all different points of view, styles, cultures, can present & discuss, comment on, each other's works. To encounter the works of other artists & poets in a freedom of existence and exchange, and to learn a lot and have a good time, too!
The name "Nos Obras Otros"indicates the works are a shared "Other" of each artist, an Other without any limitations or labels imposed.

dear all, sean burn here. i'd love you to come and see work during my forthcoming residency (23rd to 27th february) at stanley picker gallery, ( kingston university, kingston upon thames, kt1 2qj if you can make it. this is one of seven artist-activist week long residencies, with mine devoted to antiracism and exploding some of the lies of 'this small island' - britain. central is my durational work - a dictionary for the bnp, interrogating each and every word in turn and casting out any non-indigenous words leaving a - well, in all likelihood, totally empty dictionary, ridiculing their stance. also installed throughout the space will be the visual poems you find below, plus alternatives to some of the tabloid headlies, and a series of interviews with ordinary extraordinary people about antiracist / antifascist activity.

saturday 27th february 2 - 3pm. the culmination of this week will see powerful and poetic new work spanning theatre, film, spoken word and live art from sean burn and ruby sahota and mike layward. sean will present a short poetry film in memory of all disabled victims of the nazis t4 aktion campaign, ruby sahota will perform an excerpt of next swan down the river might be black looking at institutional racism within the nhs and mike layward will perform his new work the wandering jew inspired by thoughts of all those dispossessed by genocide across the centuries. sean burn will also present a new live art work - napalm perceptible responding to the lies of the far-right and a new spoken word piece - sucking pebbles lessens yr thirst they say - which in part is designed to hand over to the following weeks artist-activist ansuman biswas.
