Across four weeks in Autumn 2018 Kettle’s Yard presented a programme of quick-fire exhibitions,  each lasting for only one week.

A recent body of work by artists Broomberg & Chanarin was shown for the first time in the UK in week three of fig-futures at Kettle’s Yard. Bandage the knife not the wound (2018) is an ongoing series of overlaid photographic prints produced by the artists in what they describe as a ‘visual exchange’.

The title of this series of photographs, a quotation from the German artist Joseph Beuys, appears on a steel balustrade commissioned for this exhibition by Kettle’s Yard visible through a downstairs window—a warning to pay attention to the causes rather than the effects of violence.
