From the publisher, Haverthorn : “No poet-artist has ever explored the potentials of multidisciplinary collaboration as thoroughly as SJ Fowler and Nemeses is a landmark publication evidencing that exploration. The book brings together over 50 collaborations and collaborators, placing poems and prose alongside musical scores, diaries, sculptures, films, photographs, scripts and more. It explores not only the grand potential for collaboration as an innovative, generative, playful and profound practise, but also aims to expand what is possible when sharing the live upon the page.

New works made with pioneers of entire genres like Iain Sinclair and Phil Minton, to collaborations with some of the UK’s most exciting writers like Eley Williams, Max Porter and Joe Dunthorne sit next to works made with a global selection of writers and artists unknown on our shores and reflecting Fowler’s internationalist practise.”
