Spring-boarding from Mark Leckey’s exhibition O’ Magic Power of Bleakness, this workshop explores the different ways in which electronic music has troubled binaries and expanded perception.
Starting from Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore 1999, with contributions by artist rkss and curator Sara Sassanelli, this workshop re-evaluates the socio-political landscapes of 1980s and 90s Britain to today. Leading a discursive workshop, rkss and Sassanelli will explore how the distribution and consumption of electronic music has changed. This will include the impact of technology on contemporary rave and party organisation and the political potential of electronic music in times of crisis.
This workshop includes a visit to the Mark Leckey exhibition.
