The relationship between pubs and radical discourse is a well documented one - particularly in London. After sessions working on Das Kapital at the British Library, Karl Marx would often go for a snifter at the Museum Tavern in Russell Street - he was also fond of âbeer trips' that went from Oxford Street to Hampstead. Anarchists too, have a history of supping with brio, the Class War motto of âbeer first, business later' being a clear statement of intent for the countless meetings held in pubs by radicals of all hues to plot sedition and revolution.
Hollington and Kyprianou invite you to continue in this fine tradition, and consider a radical past or possible future in âWhat a Carve Up!' in which the Jubilee, the Olympics, the economy and Europe are all treated to their customary glass-half-empty gaze.
Simon Hollington and Kypros Kyprianou have been collaborating for over ten years, their work has been shown at Tate Modern, and the ICA London as well as internationally in North and South America, Australia and Europe including the 51st Venice Biennale.
2012 sees them celebrating collectively drinking in pubs for sixty years.
