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.

As part of a series of events at Grand Union, Birmingham, ‘Site/Non-Site OR How Many Quarters Does Birmingham Have?’ brought together work by artists Dallas Simpson and Dallas Simpson / Matt Westbrook. This presentation can be considered in relation to the following: architecture, history, industry, physical space and publication.
