Through a mix of image, text and archival material, the latest book by British artist Lisa Barnard provides a fascinating insight into the troubled history of gold and the complex ways it intersects with the global economy. Published by MACK Books.

Join us on 12 September at 6pm for the launch of this ambitious and fascinating book, with a talk and book signing by Barnard.
