Art e-Fact 13: Lyn Lowenstein


Lyn Lowenstein began work on The Homophobic Alphabet in 1998 in response to the campaign to prevent the repeal of Clause 28 which restricted the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ by Local Government in Britain.

The project which continues today takes a number of forms including self contained works, limited edition prints and a spurious educational kit – a booklet and wall-chart distributed to Edinburgh’s Primary Schools to teach children about prejudice.
