Now in its 26th iteration, 2HB is a biannual publication dedicated to creative and experimental writing in contemporary art, edited by the CCA programming team. 2HB was founded in 2009 by Francis McKee and Louise Shelley.
The selection process focuses on creative writing or fiction with a critical awareness of issues. A journal for experimental art writing, 2HB facilitates a discursive space for writing in contemporary art practice and creates a platform for artists, writers and theorists to realise work that might not otherwise be published.
2HB volumes are available from CCA as well as through Motto Distribution, Berlin and Motto stores in Berlin, Zurich, Weils and Vancouver at £3 per issue.
If you would like to purchase copies of previous editions, please contact the CCA Box Office
