THE INFANCY GOSPEL OF THE KEVINS CLASH
The latest in a series of public and private performance works by Action one19 exploring the predicament of the body seeking to extricate itself from the systems of language, capitalism and sexual normativity, and drawing on apocryphal and appropriated texts, certain distinct 'muse' figures from the cultural and political environment, and an avowedly queer reading of Agamben's concept of 'bare life'.

PROCLAMATION TO THE NATION: THREE SONGS FOR A MINOR, INCLUDING A VIDEO
For the 2004 ICA exhibition Artists' Favourites, Tino Sehgal selected Jeff Koons's Hippo (1999). His selection was accompanied by the following text: "Koons [may] effectively be the only truly leftist artist. [...] Ideally his work transforms the museum into a place where a person of so-called lower culture feels good, understood, seduced and, above all, is not alienated."
