Fuck Your Tongue (Uncoil or Swallow)

30 Apr 2011

Unfortunately this event has now been cancelled. 

Uncoil or swallow at the launch event for four volumes of the art-writing-research series published by Article Press @ BCU. The volumes present art writing practices engaged with fiction, performance, paranoia and negativity as forms of knowledge or as truth processes, critical of or alternative to forms of knowledge privileged by neo-liberalism.

The editors of the volumes, Gavin Butt, John Russell, Alun Rowlands, Maria Fusco and David Burrows, will address the importance of fiction, performance, affirmation and negativity within contemporary art writing research through readings or presentations, screening films and a panel discussion.

The volumes are:

  • Barefoot in the Head, edited by John Russell and Alun Rowlands featuring contributions from Mark Beasley and the editors.
  • Performing/Knowing, edited by Gavin Butt featuring contributions from Oreet Ashery, Kate Love, Aaron Williamson, Heathfield, Etchells & Glendinnig and the editor.
  • Performance Fictions, edited by David Burrows featuring contributions from Sadie Plant, John Cussans, Simon O'Sullivan, Pil and Galia Kollectiv and the editor.
  • Who is This Who is Coming, edited by Maria Fusco featuring contributions from Alexandre Singh, Craig Martin, George Clark & Beatrice Gibson, Jennifer Higgie and the editor.

The books were produced following a series of events held at the ICA and Whitechapel Gallery London, Performa 09 @ Bruce High Quality Foundation University New York and Electric Cinema Birmingham. The books are published by Article Press at BIAD, Birmingham City University and will be available at Fuck Your Tongue and from Central Books, the distributors for the Press.
