In the future, everyone will be cancelled for 15 minutes

An exhibition (of sorts) for goths and ravers.

Turns out Andy Warhol probably never said “in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” It was the director of a Swedish museum who was hyping up a Warhol show. But Warhol was never one to shy away from the screen-printed version of truth. And neither is British artist Jeremy Deller. His free exhibition (of sorts) is a collaboration with design whiz Fraser Muggeridge. It’s spinning with antiestablishment energy, and lit with LED-signposted wisdom (FYI “Stonehenge is a mirror”). Messiahs spin, reduced to cardboard but live for the meatspace. Limited-edition prints are on sale with proceeds going to the Asylum-Seeker Resource Centre.

Travel through the Night Trade festival haunt to check the exhibition out in Capitol Arcade. Then sink onto a couch next door for a screening or Deller’s Our Hobby is Depeche Mode. It’s a 2007 documentary that goes deep into the enduring fervour for Depeche Mode. And why music “that came from the bricks” of Basildon Essex became a such an obsession for Europe’s Eastern Bloc.
