TRUTH SERUM - FACT, Liverpoool, January 2008.
Developed with Dr.Nicolas Langlitz from the Anthropology Research Collaboratory and Max-Planck Institute, Berlin, for The Office of Experiments.
Installation with experiment. Work installed - FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), Liverpool.
The Office of Experiments' experiment in consensual self-experimentation in support of freedom from artistic censorship was conducted with volunteers in a secret venue in Liverpool on Saturday 29 March 2008. The project sought to highlight the case of artists such as Steve Kurtz and Critical Art Ensemble, and their persecution in the USA, which marks an ever-increasing creep of the security state into the nervous system of culture. A small number of volunteers took part in the experiment. They were asked to attend a venue in Liverpool at a specific time on the day.
The experiment was commissioned from the Office of Experiments (set up by artist Neal White) by The Arts Catalyst in association with 'sk-interfaces', an exhibition at FACT (Foundation for Art & Creative Technology), Liverpool.
'Truth Serum Threat: Notes on Psychopharmacology of Truthfulness' - A Paper for Sk-interface conference at FACT.
