Black Dogs living the Good LIfe

The second talk of the series saw Black Dogs presenting a talk about the ethics of their working practice rather than the actual works itself. In the past Black dogs felt that their work, although well received, has its underlying politic content often misplaced. In an effort to combat the mis-representation of their art bats they put together this talk.

The talk consists of the first episode of the 1970's sitcom The Good Life. The ethics and values found within a do it yourself self sufficient lifestyle has many similar lines and points with that of Black Dogs method of working practice. Over the film Black Dogs provides a narrative, almost manifesto, on art production outside of consumerist modes of reception.

Film to follow.
