Today is our birthday.

20 years ago today – on 5th November 1998 – Quarantine, Company number 03662113, was incorporated at Companies House.


We thought about hosting a big party to celebrate.  Or publishing a book full of photographs from the shows.  Or staging a retrospective.

But instead we’ve decided to stop.  Stop doing what we’re doing and ask ourselves a question:

If we were to start a company today – on 5th November 2018 – what kind of company would we create?  We’re all 20 years older and the world has changed. 

For the next 40 days and 40 nights, we’re going to put ourselves in quarantine and, via this space, work out in public what we might do next.

Every day, at midday and midnight, until December 14th, we’ll post new material right here.  There will be writing, images, sounds and links to other things. At the end of it all, we’ll come out changed.

But for the next 12 hours, until midnight tonight, Quarantine doesn’t exist.
