This special raffle ticket edition was created for Book Works’ inaugural fundraiser raffle, summer 2017.
About the work:
Following Book Works receiving Arts Council England’s Catalyst Evolve Award we instigated a raffle in order to raise money towards our new artists’ commissions, events, and workshops. The event was generously supported by Hollybush Gardens, who lent us their space for the event, and the artists who donated work as prizes. Thanks to this award, each ticket edition sold for the raffle was match funded.
The fundraising raffle was held on 29/06/17. Details of the event and prizes that were drawn are below:
Book Works Summer Party and Raffle Prize Draw

About the artist:
British-South African artist duo Broomberg & Chanarin (Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin) are still alive but their 23-year artistic partnership was officially terminated on the 20th of February 2021. Describing the ‘death’, South Africa’s Goodman Gallery said ‘the duo have legally, economically, creatively, and conceptually committed suicide.’ The funerary procession for the pair’s extensive collaboration began in London in December last year when a 13-metre long articulated truck, loaded with crates containing the artist’s entire archive departed for Barcelona. Their prints, negatives, intimate notes, sketches of unfulfilled projects, and catalogue of books, will be displayed at what Goodman Gallery calls the duo’s first ‘posthumous retrospective’. The exhibition, The Late Estate Broomberg & Chanarin, ran from 20 February to May 23, 2021 at El Centro d’Art Contemporani Fabra I Coats in Barcelona. The Goodman Gallery runs the artists’ joint estate. Together Broomberg and Chanarin have had numerous international exhibitions. Their work is represented in major public and private collections. They were awarded the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize for their book War Primer 2, described as a “book that physically inhabits the pages of Bertolt Brecht’s remarkable 1955 publication War Primer.” They were awarded the International Center of Photography Infinity Awardfor their publication, Holy Bible. Broomberg and Chanarin founded the imprint Chopped Liver Press to publish and sell their own books as well as those by other artists.
