A walk around the canals of Digbeth and up to St Philips Cathedral was led by Matt Westbrook. A pack of six handmade postcards served as prompts for informal discussion of the area’s history, landscape and Robert Smithson’s ideas of Site and Non-site.

Presented at Grand Union, Birmingham as part of ‘Site/Non-Site OR How Many Quarters Does Birmingham Have?’, alongside works by Dallas Simpson and Dallas Simpson / Matt Westbrook. This presentation could be thought about in relation to architecture, history, industry, physical space and publication.
