TANK TV - NOVEMBER 2015
At Tank TV we've had a great few months, October saw us launching an ambitious month long group show featuring works from some of the greatest artists of the past 40 years. 'New Group Materialism' saw collectives such as General Idea’s (AA Bronson) 1979 mock talk show and Bernadette Corporation’s 1996 in-house motivational video, to Shanzhai Biennial’s 2014 real estate advertising, draw on the language of the corporation to find subjectivity and agency within it. These collectives showed film along with work from the likes of Hito Steryerl, Lucky PDF, Auto Italia, Yuri Pattison and artist BessNYC4 taking over our @tank.tv instagram account. New Group Materialism is now archived on the tank.tv site so please take a look back at the project, and stay tuned for further exploration within it.
Justin Polera Co-Curator of 'New Group Materialism' looks into fiction and theft as strategies in image-based culture through the works of General Idea and Bernadette Corporation in a piece called 'Real Time Realness' which is now live on the Auto Italia blog. read more here...
