Cosey Fanni Tutti: Art Sex Music - An autobiographical reading

26 Oct 2016

This event will be standing with a limited number of seats available on a first come first served basis on the day.

To mark the fortieth anniversary of the ICA's seminal exhibition Prostitution by COUM Transmissions, Cosey Fanni Tutti reads from her forthcoming autobiography Art Sex Music published by Faber & Faber.  

Reciting her personal experience at the time of the exhibition and the surrounding media furore, this reading will be followed by a Q&A with Maria Fusco (critic, writer and reader at the University of Edinburgh) and a rare screening of the COUM Transmissions film After Cease to Exist.    

A selection of Cosey's original ICA Prostitution Magazine Actions will also be displayed. The evening will close with Richard Clouston of Cosey Club DJing in the ICA bar.

This event is presented in collaboration with Cabinet, London and Faber Social.

Now in its 70th anniversary year, the ICA is extending the research and profiling of its legacy with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
