The Manchester cholera epidemic of the 1830s is the unlikely inspiration for the first major UK project by one of the world’s most playful and provocative art collectives. Here at the invitation of Contact Young Curators, five emerging local artists brought together by MIF and Contact, Tokyo’s Chim↑Pom are building a temporary brewery beneath Manchester Victoria Station* – and you can explore it during MIF19.
Cholera swept through Manchester almost 200 years ago. Thousands of people were buried in cholera pits around modern-day Victoria Station and Angel Meadow, and thousands more only survived because they drank beer instead of water.
Join us for an intimate and immersive hour-long tour of Chim↑Pom’s underground brewery – ending with a chance to sample the beer brewed on site by the artists especially for the Festival.
