About

Cosey Fanni Tutti is the ideal artist to start our new series on art and music, having worked across the two mediums since 1969. In this film, interspersed with live footage from her bands Throbbing Gristle and Chris and Cosey, she talks about her distaste for decorative art and how her music is all about emotion. She also discusses her work from the 1970s, in which she modeled for glamour magazines as a way to explore the commodification of sex. It would have been hypocritical, she explains, to use images of other people when she could have done it herself.
