Strong Language is curated by the artist, writer and performance maker Tim Etchells of Sheffield’s Forced Entertainment. Highlighting radical writing and independent publishing in the UK it centres on Piece of Paper Press, a low-tech sustainable publishing platform founded in 1994 by novelist and former Sheffield art student Tony White. Each Piece of Paper Press book is made from a single A4 sheet, and titles are always given away free.
