Join author Noni Stacey and critic Roberta McGrath as they discuss Stacey’s new book Leave to Remain, A Snapshot of Brexit, which explores the role of art, photography, activism and satire on Britain leaving the European Union and reflects upon the conditions for the Brexit referendum.

Stacey interviewed world renowned artists and photographers, including Cornelia Parker, Wolfgang Tillmans, David Shrigley, Tacita Dean and Jeremy Deller, as well as the activists and satirists Cold War Steve and Led By Donkeys, who offer fascinating insights into their work and explore the ongoing consequences of this political cataclysm.

Noni Stacey is a Glasgow-based writer and cultural historian. Leave to Remain is her second book for Lund Humphries. Her first book, Photography of Protest and Community: The Radical Collectives of the 1970s, was published in 2020. She is currently a practice supervisor at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK). She holds a PhD from University of the Arts London. Previously she worked as a picture editor and researcher for newspapers and magazines, and as a journalist and TV news producer for more than a decade.
