Conduire started as an online space in 2012 housed over on conduire.co.uk. Once each edition was published online - the previous would come off the website and would disappear without trace - as such Conduire never had any digital archive or trace online. In 2014 and 2015 as part of the Art Licks Weekend (a festival supporting emerging artistic and curatorial practice as well as new creative spaces in London) it morphed to be both online and in real-time as a programme of events domestically hosted in my flat in Upper Clapton.
