Until Proven Safe: The History and Future of Quarantine

Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley in conversation with Brendan Cormier

As part of the Summer Public Programme, join author Geoff Manaugh, journalist Nicola Twilley and curator Brendan Cormier for a conversation around the history and future of global quarantine to launch Manaugh and Twilley's new book Until Proven Safe.

Geoff Manaugh, author of BLDGBLOG and A Burglar’s Guide to the City, and Nicola Twilley, journalist and co-host of Gastropod, come to the AA Bookstore for the virtual launch of the UK edition of their timely new book, Until Proven Safe: The History and Future of Quarantine.

Begun long before COVID-19, Until Proven Safe tracks the history and future of quarantine around the globe, chasing the story of emergency isolation through time and space—from crumbling Mediterranean lazarettos built to contain the Black Death to an experimental Ebola unit in London, and from the hallways of the CDC to closed-door simulations where pharmaceutical execs and epidemiologists prepare for pandemics yet to come.

But the story of quarantine ranges far beyond the history of medical isolation. The authors tour a nuclear-waste isolation facility beneath the New Mexican desert, see plants stricken with a disease that threatens the world’s wheat supply, and meet NASA’s Planetary Protection Officer, tasked with saving Earth from extraterrestrial infections.

This is ‘the book of our historical moment,’ writes Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes) — ‘startlingly timely, authoritatively researched, and electrifyingly written.’ Buzzfeed calls it ‘the perfect postpandemic read—an imaginative, layperson-friendly way to make sense of and contextualize what we just lived through.’ In starred reviews, Publisher’s Weekly describes Until Proven Safe as ‘riveting and timely,’ and Kirkus Reviews calls it ‘captivating… An infectiously appealing overview of efforts to contain the potentially infectious.’

Manaugh and Twilley are joined in conversation by Brendan Cormier, Senior Curator of Exhibitions and Special Projects at the V\u0026A, and leader of its Pandemic Objects project.


The Until Proven Safe: The History and Future of Quarantine book will be available for a special launch price of £20 (RRP £25) for the month of July from the AA Bookshop.

The Ripple Effect: GHOST STORIES AROUND THE FIRE PIT

Space Saloon, The Maak and Alex Cotzee

GHOST STORIES AROUND THE FIRE PIT is a 30-minute virtual group performance reflecting on the limits/ambivalence of knowledge and representation. Space Saloon together with Alex Coetzee, Ashleigh Killa and Max Melvill of The PLOT Gallery, will narrate stories inspired by shadows and idiosyncrasies, or "ghosts", in our everyday lives. The piece aims to reflect on our diverse cultural backgrounds as we follow a chance-driven creative process that incorporates stories from the arts, sciences, philosophy and personal experience. The show will be followed by a 10-minute discussion.

Alex Coetzee, Max Melvill and Ashleigh Killa jointly founded The PLOT. Their combined backgrounds include visual art, architecture and spatial discourse. Together, they have been exploring avenues for digital and virtual spatial design under the project ‘The PLOT’. The PLOT is a virtual gallery space that is investigating the untapped spatial potential of the internet and the materiality of the online. It is an open platform to discuss, question and contribute to the shifting narratives of spatial practice today.
