Curated by writer and publisher Michael Butterworth and the Exhibition Centre for the Life and Use of Books, tonight’s preview reveals material from Savoy’s often controversial archive in a new exhibition, The Use and Abuse of Books. Spanning Butterworth’s career from New Worlds, Corridor, banned publications, police raids and David Britton’s imprisonment with Savoy, through to his most recent art and writing journal Corridor8, this exhibition features rare comics, graphic novels and books from the Savoy back catalogue and examines whether the depiction and description of horrific acts is justified in satire.
