Lessons in Heterosexuality: Portland

Following the first iteration of the ‘Lessons in Heterosexuality’ programme at Arcadia Missa in January 2012, John Bloomfield was invited to deliver a new version of the programme as part of an artist’s residency at S1, Portland.

As part of the residency a book was produced with Publication Studio, Portland, which is available here. The book features contributions from Ben Mechen, Kirsten Tambling, Melanie Francis, Rózsa Zita Farkas, Ben Cornish, Sarah Taylor-Harman, Lora Hristova and Michael Bloomfield.
