Three years after the Brexit referendum campaign, the Brexit Bus is back – but not as you might remember it. The infamous Vote Leave campaign bus emblazoned with the highly debated statement: “We send the EU £350 million a week let’s fund our NHS instead,” has been recreated as a book and exhibition by Fraser Muggeridge and Arnaud Desjardin.
A collaboration between the graphic designer and publisher, who founded The Everyday Press, the project serves as a reminder of the controversial tactics employed to sway voters on that fateful day in 2016. The duo comments on the bus’ new incarnation: “British citizens were asked: ‘Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?’ Three years on, the question remains unresolved.”
Impactful in its pure scale, Brexit Bus is printed in black and white on 436 individual sheets of A3 paper, which collate to become a four-metre-high, 13-metre-long image of the bus. This comes together as a book, printed in an edition of 100. The full collage was recently shown in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, and will be on display at the soon-to-open Matt’s Gallery in Nine Elms until 28 July.
