An installation from David Jacques, the winner of the Liverpool Art Prize 2010. The artist's work is inspired by the history of trade union banners and the entrepreneur George Tutil, whose workshop dominated banner production in the 19th century. The work represents items from a fictional subversive banner workshop discovered in an abandoned flat in Irlam House, a tower block in Bootle.

Part of 'City of Radicals' a city wide programme of events commemorating the 1911 General Transport Strike in Liverpool.
