Im kommenden Frühjahr erscheint bei Faber Social die Autobiografie von Cosey Fanni Tutti. Das Buch trägt den Titel Art Sex Music und deckt alle Phasen im Werk der Musikerin und Künstlerin vom Kollektiv COUM Transmissions bis zu heutigen Aktivitäten mit Carter Tutti und Carter Tutti Void ab.
“Art Sex Music is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades.
It is the account of an artist who, as part of COUM Transmissions, represented Britain at the IXth Biennale de Paris, whose Prostitution show at the ICA in 1976 caused the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn to declare her, COUM and Throbbing Gristle ‘Wreckers of Civilisation’ . . . shortly before he was arrested for indecent exposure, and whose work continues to be held at the vanguard of contemporary art, some of which resides as part of the Tate permanent collection.
And it is the story of her work as a pornographic model and striptease artiste which challenged assumptions about morality, pornography and art.”
