Description

A pioneering figure in Industrial/experimental music and performance art, Cosey Fanni Tutti has embodied many roles since her early days as one half of COUM Transmissions, alongside Genesis P-Orridge. COUM's first art exhibition, Prostitution, at the ICA London in 1976, outraged the public with its inclusion of bloodied tampons and photographs of Cosey modeling for porn magazines, and was closed after four days. Cosey and Genesis went on to cofound Throbbing Gristle, the band that pioneered and named Industrial music as a genre; when they split in 1981 she formed the electronica duo Chris & Cosey with TG keyboardist Chris Carter. In 2010, Cosey returned to the ICA for an all-day celebration of her work, arranged by editor and author Maria Fusco. Arising from that occasion, this volume is the first major publication on Cosey, and features contributions by Martin Bax, Gerard Byrne, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Daniela Cascella, Diedrich Diederichsen, Graham Duff, John Duncan, Chris Kraus and many others.show more
