For the past few years I've been working intensively with Test Dept and Peter Webb on a comprehensive archival book documenting their work and its impact. I've contributed an introductory text and two shorter texts on the group's work. Full details of the book and where to buy it will be available soon. Total State Machine will be published by PC-Press on April 23rd and this will be marked by a special event at The Ritzy in Brixton.
A premiere screening of DS30, documenting Test Dept's monumental 2014 installation and video project on the River Tyne will be accompanied by a selection of Test Dept archive
material on film and video. This will be followed by a Q
& A with founding members Graham Cunnington, Angus Farquhar and Paul
Jamrozy. Special DJ sets will be provided by Scanner and Shelley Parker.
