CRITICAL DECOR: A SHORT ORGANUM FOR EXHIBITION is a compendium of images and writing that documents and examines JCHP’s recent exhibition at Lanchester Gallery Projects.
The publications map out JCHP’s concerns about “exhibitionism” and their attempt to outwit the exhibition apparatus and the hold it has on the production of artistic practice.
The publication includes writing from Terry Atkinson, Richard Birkett, Alex Bowen, Michael Hampton, Lynda Morris, Matthew Poole and JCHP, poems and prose from Brecht’s unfinished Messingkauf project and images of the exhibition and associated events. The publication comprises a series of posters and two books produced before, during and after the exhibition.
LGP launched the publication at Banner Repeater, London, 16 May, 2014.
