In 2009 the Home Office published a list of names of “individuals banned from the United Kingdom for stirring up hatred”. Two Minutes of Hate is a series of excerpts from the men’s speeches, interviews and trial proceedings, read by actor Eoin McMarthy, one of the voice of Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness, during the broadcast ban on Sinn Féin members introduced by the UK government in 1988 . The reading, originally created as a video installation for gallery by Ichor Agency Ltd, will be followed by a panel discussion – speakers to be confirmed.
