New responsive website

New responsive website

It's 2017, you most probably are no longer reading this on a desktop computer, in fact you're probably looking at it in bed. We hope that it is in some way coherent and not just a scramble of binary code. Yes, we've finally started to build our new HTML5 website which is responsive and should therefore look OK no matter what size your screen, please let us know if you're having any problems viewing it and which internet browser/device you are using so we can try to correct it. This is a work in progress that will continue throughout the year so please bear with us until the website is complete. We hope you like it.


The Anarchist-Communist Sunday School

The Anarchist-Communist Sunday School

From Spring 2015 until sometime in 2033 we will be walking from Liverpool to Manchester along the canal. We will walk approximately 3 miles a year and document this 18 year journey through film, audio recordings and photographs in order to capture the aging and development of the participants which currently consist of 6 children (aged 1 - 15), two foetuses (due to be born Autumn 2015) and 6 adults (3 couples aged early 30s to early 40s). The project is borne out of an interest in growth, potential, learning, politicisation, and social change. Collectively we hope to develop greater understanding of ourselves, one another, our children and our environment, and how we are able to affect each of these over time. This activity will take place on two Sundays a year and will form the basis of the entire curriculum of the Anarchist-Communist Sunday School.

Becoming UNIT

Becoming UNIT

In 2013 and 2015 we collaborated in the development of Child One and Child Two. These are our most ambitious projects to-date and will involve an on-going series of social and cognitive experiments in to the realm of the unknown. To mark the departure in to this phase of experimentation we now work under the name UNIT, and will be working tirelessly to fulfil our neo-liberal duties as a hardworking family. We are particularly proud to be contributing 131,760 hours* of (surplus) labour-time to the UK's failing post-capitalist crises, post-Brexit job market through our own domestic reproduction.
*Estimate based on two lifetimes each consisting of 40 years of work averaging 1647 hours of work per year.


Free e-publication available

Free e-publication available

We have now made available a free downloadable PDF copy of a printed book that we made as a limited run of 40 copies a number of years ago. Throughout winter 2012 we hosted artists/delegates for residencies at the fictitious Commonwealth Culture Office of the International Center of Cultural Exchange and Diplomatic Friendship (ICCEDF) at our house in Liverpool. Examining, among other things, art as a 'soft power' tool used to export western ideals globally through the facilitation of cultural exchange.

2017 / year of the robots

2017 / year of the robots

We have a few projects in the pipeline that we will be working on in 2017 that will consider our childrens' future in relation to the next wave of automation of the workplace, the Fourth Industrial Revolution of robotics and AI. This body of work will start in February 2017 with Driving to a Post-capitalist Future, a research and development project at Bradford University's Gallery II as part of their Art Lab programme.


Free University of Liverpool / Free Publication

Free University of Liverpool / Free Publication

The Free University of Liverpool was an initiative set up to protest the marketisation of education following the introduction of £9,000 a year tuition fees. It ran for three years during which a dedicated team of cultural activists, educationalists and cultural workers attempted to teach/learn/self-educate a BA in Cultural Praxis. A member of UNIT designed for free their book Foundations, to show support for the project and to try to help it to sustain and grow. In 2016, with no more printed copies left to distribute, we released an electronic copy available here as a PDF.

We engage in the adventure of knowledge not to assist the accumulation of capital but to collectively and individually realise our hopes and desires. Foundations is about a community in the making and the making of a new forum for living and learning.
