You and Me Here We are: The Birmingham Placement Experiment


This richly illustrated book was published on the occasion of an exhibition of the same title.
It evokes the authors Artist Placement Group project – the first placement of an artist in a Government Department on an open brief – and describes, in re-printings of original reports and papers, the innovative artistic methods deployed working mainly in the deprived inner area of Small Heath, Birmingham.

In the summer of 2015 Eastside Projects and Roger Coward re-visited his 1975 Artist Placement Group project in Birmingham. Focusing on Small Heath as part of the Government’s Inner Area Study, the exhibition of original material included the artist’s film ‘The Most Smallest Heath in the Spaghetti Junction’, this book, a symposium ‘The Studio in Society’ 4 July, and a revival of two plays devised and performed in Digbeth in 1975.
