GALLERY: Stewart Home / Bookworks

Part of Again, A Time Machine: a Book Works touring exhibition in six parts

From his earliest work Stewart Home has expressed an avantgardist desire to write himself into the archive of culture. Mixing experimental prose and polemic, with plagiarism and a savage ideological critique, Book Works present a selective archive of cultural interventions and artwork, publications, films and ephemera.

ANNEXE: Bernadette Corporation - Films

“It’s an everyday group hallucination.”

It is said that Bernadette Corporation were founded in a nightclub in 1994. Hired to attract attractive young people to parties and events, they soon became more interested in organising spontaneous, purposeless events in public space. From 1995 to 2005, they worked under the guise of a fashion label (BC), self-published an art magazine (Made in USA) and published widely, including the multi-author novel Reena Spaulings (Semiotexte).

During this period - further emphasising their slippery project of cultural displacement and d├ętournement - Bernadette Corporation produced a number of key film works, all of which are on display in this exhibition.

LIBRARY: Primary Information - Aggregated Book Club

Primary Information present a library of books they have not yet read but wish to read soon in relation to their new Artists Writings publication series. Visitors are invited to read portions of the books and write down their impressions. They hope that by the end of the project viewers will read all of the books.
