Located on Platform 1 of Hackney Downs railway station, Banner Repeater is an on platform reading room which is filled with art. It is a publically owned exhibit and has a bibliographic database which can be browsed by anyone who is waiting for a train to come down the lines.
The project is designed to exhibit new art works to a wider audience and what better place to get attention than a train station? There are also talks, lectures and many types of performances which occur on the site. It is well worth a visit if you are travelling.
