About

Curated by Karl Weill At the Bun House, 96 Peckham High Street, London, SE15 5ED On Friday, 28th October 2011, 7pm onwards. Party to follow. Jack Catling Lennie Lee Vanessa Mitter Nicola Ruben Montini O. B. De Alessi James Gardiner Doireann Ni Ghrioghair Leo Koivistoinen Alec Dunnachie Phill Wilson-Perkin Samantha Taylor In September 1968, Karl Weill stated: What is the performative tactic if it is not a calculated assault on the audience? It is forbidden to forbid. I want you to imagine, for a moment, an audience who are not entertained. I am walking backwards. Ennui. The slow rustling of a paper bag. Talking. A man swears. The crowd breaks out in laughter. Voices heckling……the audience falls silent. A fear of engulfment precedes attack. The shouting then begins. Intervention. All the while, my back is turned(1). 1.
