DESCRIPTION

brave

brāv/

adjective

adjective: brave; comparative adjective: braver; superlative adjective: bravest

1. ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage.

 

Vintage Violence will feature work that explores violence in complex and often personal ways. Works that are full of content and deal in discomfort, bad behavior, ethical quandary, embarrassing openness, power and vulnerability. They continue to find new forms for difficult subject matter. The organizers of the show see a connection to a tradition of difficult work: writers like Poe, Burroughs and Acker, artists like Francis Bacon, Hans Bellmer, and Louise Bourgeois, musicians such as Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Marianne Faithful, films of Claire Denis, Michael Haneke, Paul Schrader and Catherine Breillat.

 

Give me crack and anal sex 


Take the only tree that's left 


and stuff it up the hole 


in your culture 


Give me back the Berlin wall

give me Stalin and St Paul 


I've seen the future, brother: 
it is murder.

- Leonard Cohen, The Future
