A short, sharp travelling intervention featuring UK and USA performance artists and anti-shoppers who interrupted the usual patterns of consumption.
They performed in contested public spaces, right in the heart of corporate chain stores, where the "shopping experience" is most ritualized
The core team included representatives from:
Retroactive Logo Distribution
My Dads Strip Club
Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping
How and Why
The Vacuum Cleaner
They were joined by guest artists and anti-shoppers en route
The tour was supported by:
Platform & Waygood Newcastle
Broadway Media and Arts Centre
The Sumac Centre Nottingham
Arts Council England
Not forgetting the artists themselves and the support from many individuals who provided documentation, accomodation, transport, etc. etc.....
