OMSK takes the element of the live event into the space of the printed book and gives each artist a set of blank pages. Documentation of performances coincides with instructions for use, riffs on the cinema, comic book drawings, art as anatomy, and musings on the presence of the artist. This publication also offers a critical overview of a dynamic period of change within multidisciplinary art practice. The DVD features some of the most exciting work in moving image from the UK and beyond; and on it’s flip side is a CD packed with cutting edge sound and music compared by Rob da Bank. In addition, OMSKBOOK includes a DIY guide for artists and curators to propagate future platforms for experimental art.
