Front Line Mutate Artists Open Xmas Pop Up Shop

Taking Liberty’s is now open! Every Thursday to Saturday from 12 – 8pm for the next 2 weeks AND Sundays 12 – 6pm. A studio full of amazing stuff, made by some of the legendary Mutoid Waste Co, Mutate Britain, Treatmentrooms and Craftivist Collectives – just to name a few. Click here for a map.

Here’s the latest from Carrie ‘The Baroness’ Reichardt: This is an open studio, so we are selling direct from the artists and we are donating 10% from all sales to Reel News – a London based video activist collective. So come shop locally, shop ethically and support those who are risking their lives to bring you the truth from the front line. And do us a favour and tell your mates…..

Here here Baroness! Tell everyone – enemies and friends – there are some truly unique pieces to be picked up here. This work will be front and center in the world famous Bonhams ‘Art of the Revolution’ auction in 2014.

Support The Robin Hood Tax NOW!

Troopers: We are back in full support of The Robin Hood Tax Campaign!

Now is the time for this simple and revolutionary idea.

On the 14th of January the French and the Germans changed the game when they lead the charge for a tax on banks. Cameron is sitting on the fence. Now is the time to make your voice heard if you care about right and wrong. Check the Robin Hood Tax website – and watch this space for news.

Last year, as Carrie Reichardt pointed out with the below piece, bankers were paid £7 billion in bonuses. This is a fundamental social injustice. That money could have been spent on for example: 32 new hospitals or free education for 800,000 of our most promising students. For the gimzo (supported by official figures) that shows you how banks bonuses might better be spent, look here.

THE KEY MESSAGES:

It is only fair that banks pay their share.
The public are rightly angry that banks took our economy to the brink, but we are paying to clear up the mess. Whilst we feel the effects of the cuts and tax rises, they are receiving billions in bonuses. A Robin Hood Tax would show we really are all in this together as it would fall on those who can afford to pay.

The Robin Hood Tax offers a real alternative to cuts.
Banks in the UK can afford to pay an extra £20 billion a year in tax. This offers a real alternative to cuts in public services that will hurt millions of people in the UK and around the world. The choice between helping those here in the UK and abroad is a false choice; a Robin Hood Tax on banks is a fair and practical way to do both.

We can turn a crisis for banks into an opportunity for the world.
Millions of poor people at home and abroad are suffering from an economic crisis they did nothing to cause and millions more are facing the devastating effects of climate change. A Robin Hood Tax can raise hundreds of billions globally to help them.

It’s been some time since Dr D, Carrie Reichardt, Kennard-Phillips, Pete Dunne and Dotmasters brought their work together for an exhibition we ran in support of The Robin Hood Tax. Here’s a video reminder, featuring exemplary gentleman Bill Nighy:

Next we plan a new series of supporting artwork in the form of campaign banners. Let’s unite beneath them. Let’s take to the streets and show that we are engaged, that we care and that we have had enough!

Dead Leg, Best Ever, Dotmaster painting at Cordy House

Well, happy new year all crew – hope the vibes were right and you didn’t kill your parents. As 2010 commits itself to the annals of history we remember the good times – Glastonbury, Newport, Chu’s World First hand painted 3D Graffiti installation, the Whitecross Street Party… and many more moments, to many to mention. Now, 2011 shows a terrifying amount of promise. Deep in the jungle something is mutating. The natives are getting restless. So much so that Bleech, Zadok, Dotmasters and Best Ever battled abominable snow conditions to add a new lick to the front of Cordy House: Teddy Baden has also been active, dreaming of dog sausage: Meanwhile we’ve had a whole heap of bombing action inside the building as part of Don’t Watch That.tv and Trailer Park events:

PS – just watched THIS short film on dontwatchthat.tv – a brilliant piece by Director Sean Dunne about the collector with the world’s largest archive of vinyl. Do watch it.

Brand new work at Cordy House from Chu, Dotmasters, T.wat, David Walker, Mr. E Dawe, Wreckage and more…

Woop woop, we are in full swing at the moment and Cordy House is getting bombed by selected friends. In a shocking buff Wreckage cained the last Obey piece we had clinging to the outside of the building! Go Wreckage, it’s time for new, so out with old – there’s a new work by the master Mutoid going up there this week to compliment Mr. E Door’s open hearted effort that’s opposite – pics of those on way but here are the new works from Dotmasters and T.wat: Great new pieces from T.wat – there’s more pics to come and Chu’s INCREDIBLE kitchen sink scientific Graffiti Cubed walk in experience is opening next Thursday so get on the hype!
