DIY: 2018 – Owen G Parry & Angel Rose: Luv 2 H8 U

A hangout for ‘haters’, anti-fans and the uninitiated

Deadline for applications: 5pm, Mon 18 June
This DIY is supported by Norwich Arts Centre

Project summary

Luv 2 H8 U explores hate (“the fascism in us all”, Foucault) as an aesthetic practice and critical mode across a history of radicalised art and countercultural movements from punk to the alt-right, from songs by Erasure and Taylor Swift to National Art Hate Week.

Expect ceremonial exorcisms, hate-bakes, shitstorms, vindictive acts of revenge, hate-songs, hate-speech, hate-symbols, hate-mail, and hate-sex, interspersed with fits of screaming and deadly silence. We will harness, occupy, re-claim and repurpose the aesthetic pleasures and politics of hate in respect to issues of identity, spirituality and censorship. With special guest hate-experts tba!

How to apply

Applicants are invited to choose something to hate-on for the duration of the hangout. You’re not the victim, you’re the perpetrator in this antidote to group therapy. This could be anything from Tracey Emin’s Tory politics to the ACE Grantium application portal; the gay fascism of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to hard-boiled eggs when they go all purply-grey. We will be holding court and holding stuff to account!

The online application asks for details of your artistic practice, and what you wish to hate on for the duration of the DIY.

Dates, times and location

Dates: Sat 15 – Sun 16 Sep 2018
Times: 9.30am – 6pm both days, with additional off-site Saturday evening activity
Location: Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich

Some travel expenses and Saturday night accommodation can be covered for a small number of applicants from outside of Norwich.
