The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home are Gary Anderson, Lena Simic, Neal, Gabriel, Sid and James.
We are artists. We are activists. We are a family.
Mummy and kids are in the frame and Daddy’s behind the camera.
We are a nice nuclear family.
We are a hetero-normative unit.
Tesco loves us, Disney adores us and McDonalds can’t get enough of us.
We are complicit in consumer capitalism. We, the family, are the solid bedrock of society, at least that is what we are told. Instead we will dissent! We will have fun and take the piss. We have decided to organize a programme of events in our council house for the duration of Liverpool 08 and beyond.
We have decided to voice our discontent. We have decided to ask questions around art and culture, money and capitalism, private and public, familial and civic life.
We have decided to disobey. We, as a family, have decided to be naughty.
