Online Talk | Dora Gordine & Dorich House: Friendship, Life & Legacy

As part of our project ‘The Squatter Years: Recovering Dorich House Museum’s Recent Past’, we will be holding a free online talk on Saturday 30th January, at 4pm. This talk will be a unique opportunity to hear from three fascinating individuals who have approached the enigmatic life of Dora Gordine from different perspectives: Tim Harrison, a journalist and close friend of Gordine in her later years; Annaleena Piel Linnå, filmmaker and creator of the first feature-length documentary on Gordine, Dora Gordine: Ars Gratia Artis; and Brenda Martin, former curator of Dorich House Museum, who played a central role in establishing the house as a museum. This event is curated by our project volunteers and Kingston School of Art students Mengfei Liu and Rebecca Rushton.

To book your place, please visit our Eventbrite page.

On Thursday 28 January, we will begin publishing the first strand of ‘The Squatter Years’ project research on our website, which focuses on Dora Gordine and Richard Hare’s art collection, with further project findings on the renovation of Dorich House and its use by squatters, filmmakers and partygoers to follow.
