The Bad Vibes Club

The Bad Vibes Club is a forum for research into negative states. It hosts talks & lectures, organises performances, reading groups and workshops, and produces videos, digital media, essays and publications.

Founded in 2014 at Open School East, The Bad Vibes Club began as a lecture programme, featuring guests such as Sally O’Reilly, Mark Fisher and Lisa Baraitser, and a regular reading group.

Since then, it has grown into a wide ranging project operating both as a platform for artists and thinkers, and as a collaborative production space for new art and research.

Collaborators and co-curators include Sam Mercer, Matthew Breen, Sophie Mallett, Hamish MacPherson and Beth Bramich.

The Bad Vibes Club has worked with institutions such as ICA London, Barbican London, CCA Derry-Londonderry, MK Gallery, Open School East and Flat Time House.
