Interruptions is a new research project by The Bad Vibes Club commissioned by Field Broadcast. Interruptions will present a new history of interruption as an artistic practice, focusing on British artists' film, video, moving image and digital art.
The Bad Vibes Club will produce public moments of research throughout the Interruptions project in the form of a continually updated tumblr, videos and multimedia research published at fieldbroadcast.org, and discussions and screening events at Peter Scott Gallery, Lancaster Arts, MK Gallery, Furtherfield and Open School East. Interruptions will culminate in a new series of broadcasts in Spring 2016 using the Field Broadcast app. The broadcasts will be made by The Bad Vibes Club from found footage and archive material sourced through their work with Lux and the British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection.
The Bad Vibes Club is a research project into morbid ethics and the productive possibilities of negative states. For Interruptions, the artists Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau and Sam Mercer. will be working as The Bad Vibes Club.
