MASS
MASS: a new project initiated during Auto Italia's one-month research residency at Cemeti Institute, Yogyakarta, Indonesia exploring the social and political possibilities within fandoms and fan culture.
cute review by @elieljones on our Gran Fury exhibition for @frieze_magazine online now . . "The exhibition here revisits some of Gran Fury’s activities non-museologically – by including life-size billboards, banners, facsimiles, stickers and video not as documents of the past, but as images that are imbued with a radical political energy on which we might draw today.”

Words fail me
Words fail me is a newly commissioned project initiated by artist Adam Gallagher exploring how art is reckoned by language, and how its objects are spoken to or about.
"Art is not Enough" - fantastic interview with Gran Fury by @alisongingeras and @jamiesonwebster in the current issue of @spike_art_magazine - THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SOCIETY. . . “At this point, with PreP held hostage by big pharma, AIDS has been contained in communities that have traditionally had access to healthcare and political resources but continues to spread in those communities most under-resourced. This is largely due to the racism of healthcare - something that has prevented effective universal healthcare from being adopted in the US long after other developed industrialised countries made this available. We are still living with this!”
