Projects
  • THE RETURN OF SWIM DEEP
    THE RETURN OF SWIM DEEP"Out of the fallout of the guitar revivalists of the 2000s came a generation of indie listeners worn tired of the sounds of six strings pushed through an overdriven amp. An 80’s revivalism primarily soundtracked the indie scene of the early 2010s. Perhaps it was the feelings of insecurity following the 2008 financial crash, but people no longer wanted to listen to The Libertines bollock garishly and ladishly, people wanted indie music that made them feel at home; that made them feel good."
  • MOCA’S ‘AGE OF YOU’: AN UNCANNY GLIMPSE INTO OUR PRESENT
    MOCA’S ‘AGE OF YOU’: AN UNCANNY GLIMPSE INTO OUR PRESENT"Curated by Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland and Hans Ulrich Obrist, the MOCA’s latest exhibition “Age of You” reflects on how the individual is impacted by the information age. To this end, the exhibition primarily focuses on a notion of self and how selfhood is distorted, commodified and exploited under the forces of late-stage capitalism."
