Artists Dean Todd and Mikey B Georgeson will be curating more Sensorium events at this year’s 4th A&SM conference. Expect more liminal performances, the Actual Occasion silent disco and live music at the Affect and Social Media book launch from the Indelicates https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDl2daXnhL8
Highly recommend a trip to see Mikey Georgeson’s The Deadends (a celebration of a made-up culture) “experience” at Studio One Gallery in Wandsworth (a 10min walk from East Putney on the District Line). Open now weekends until 12th March.
Here’s some images, video and music from the opening night…
Dramatic shot of a Deadends Artefact
I want to thank Maurice the Dodo for delivering part of my Assemblage Brain talk on the virality of birdsong!
The documentary The Deadends (in search of truth) was recently shown at the ICA 100 years of Dada “giving rise to the misplaced idea that they are a made-up cult rather than culture”
There was a wonderful live jam (with Andy Barrett) of Deadend Resonance 2 (The Somnambulist)
Thrilled to be celebrating Mikey B Georgeson’s Deadends (a made-up culture) show at Studio One Gallery in Wandsworth (6pm) on 23rd Feb.
The documentary The Deadends (in search of truth) was recently shown at the ICA 100 years of Dada giving rise to the misplaced idea that they are a made-up cult rather than culture. Bringing together the largest collection of Deadend material to-date, the celebration will also include speculative enactment as well as featuring the first ever discoveries of Deadend sonic artifacts; The Deadends resonance (recently detected by Andy Barrett) with extracts from The Assemblage Brain by Tony D. Sampson https://soundcloud.com/mbg-1/deadend-resonance-2
The somnambulist critique of the Deadends has been taken as an opportunity to contextualize the radical new theories developed in Tony D. Sampson’s new book The Assemblage Brain, which will be launched at the celebration. The book unravels the conventional image of thought that underpins scientific and philosophical accounts of sense making, providing a new view of our current time in which capitalism and the neurosciences endeavor to colonize the brain.
NB: The curators have requested that visitors be aware that the Deadends would not have referred to themselves as the Deadends and that this is a convenient moniker derived from the signature shapes in the artifacts.
