Spoken and written words from individuals, corporations, community organisations or the state, can have a huge impact, whether good or bad. The theme for HMD 2018 'The Power of Words' explores how language has been used in the past, and how it is used in the present day. 

This year, events in Camden are part of the topical conversation about the power of words and how words can make a difference – both for good and evil. 
Primarily based at Swiss Cottage Library Gallery for the duration of the residency, Frances Scott investigated how the environments of both institutions might be ‘read’ using different forms of knowledge, from the rational to the mystical.
Writing Table remodeled one of the interior furnishings that Swiss Cottage Library’s original architect, Basil Spence, designed for the library in 1964. Nine newly created versions of Basil Spence writing tables were dispersed throughout the library, to be used as tables by the public for the duration of the exhibition.
The pieces seen in this exhibition – the props, posters and words handwritten on signs – were remakes of the original stages, props and costumes from radical theatre performed in Camden after 1968. Audience members were invited to explore these reconstructions in the same spirit of celebration and curiosity as in which they were originally made.
