Newspaper House Liverpool News & Video

The Newspaper House is moving to Liverpool to continue the work in progress started in London Gillett Square this March.

This participatory project by Sumer Erek transforms discarded newspapers into a fascinating art installation.

The Newspaper House builds with the participation from the Liverpool public, inside a shell, installed from September 5th.

Creative City asks Liverpudlians to bring newspapers to the Blackie, Chinatown. Follow the folding instructions below, and bring your newspaper to be included within the design of the House.

The Newspaper House unveiling on September 19th at 2pm will reveal to the public Sumer Erek's thought-provoking artwork and the work of all who participated.

The Newspaper House will be exhibited until October 5th.
