About The Book

All Over Again is a photographic project documenting erased murals on gable walls in republican and loyalist areas of Belfast. In all cases recorded the murals are painted out by members of the community who initially produced them. They are significant 'gaps', over-painted for a variety of reasons. Despite their outward simplicity the images document an activity that is politically complex. There are just enough traces of the original mural surfacing in the photographs to determine whether they are republican or loyalist.

The project aims to provide an imaginative reinterpretation of the practice of political mural painting, relating it to the fields of fine art and commercial design strategies. The objective of the publication is to publish the research and discussions that have emerged from the series. The publication has been devised in collaboration with the researcher and social anthropologist Dr Neil Jarman and the literary critic Dr Aaron Kelly. The accompanying essays aim to track the political complexities that underpin the images and to provide a critical commentary on the relationship between art, politics and advertising.
