Alien Nation

Yinka Shonibare MBE, Dysfunctional Family 1999

The Alien Nation publication is lavishly illustrated with images of the artists’ work as well as original film posters, film stills and archival photographs from the 1950s and 1960s. It includes essays by the curators – John Gill, Jens Hoffmann and Gilane Tawadros – interviews with the participating artists and an essay by Professor David A. Mellor on the BBC television series Quatermass. Alien Nation is a significant contribution to our current understanding not only of the science fiction genre but also of the politics of difference.
