Nick Couldry :  Boz Temple Morris

Monday 24th February 1997
@       7:30pm
@       Backspace, Winchester Wharf, Clink Street, London SE1

FAG-ENDS ON SLIPPERY FLOORS > < Alchemy and the Commodity

Dispersed political movements..., extra-parliamentary politics...,
non-curricular art beyond cultural discourse.......
sTALK attempts to draw together different strands in the new geographies
being defined by the drive for social change today, and asks where we
position art in the matrix of nascent and unstable social realities.

**BOZ TEMPLE MORRIS reflects on the Day of Resurrection, on Islamic
ontology rooted in concept of Ta'wil (a thing taken to its source, or
essence), and the possibility of Heresy in contemporary culture without
resort to subversion through Art -------->
he presents detailed marketing strategies behind DEATH cigarettes and the
Enlightened Tobacco Company : Marketing as essence.

**Drawing on his research at Greenham Common and the Pure Genius squatter
site at Wandsworth --------> NICK COULDRY of the Institution of Rot looks
beyond commodified Representation, the attempt to subvert monopoly media
representation and the idea of the Ritual in oppositional events.
