DESCRIPTION

Artist's book documenting the activities of the British collective BANK that engaged in critical and subversive activities with the artworld in the 1990s. Book catalogues various projects, exhibitions and interventions that thumbed the noses of some of the better know galleries and artists of the period.

BANK have been a critical force in the British art scene since their first show in 1991, representing the consistently visible and genuinely alternative strategy to the over-hyped yBa throughout the decade. The book charts the progress of BANK through a series of 27 unique, never-to-be-repeated shows united only by attitude and energy: an adrenaline-driven journey through their obsession with the mechanics, politics and etiquette of making art, and of making art visible. Key concepts in their work include exhibition as installation art, curation as art practice, and curation as appropriation.
