Overview

A SUNDAY TIMES, TELEGRAPH, ROUGH TRADE, PITCHFORK AND UNCUT MUSIC BOOK OF THE YEAR
SHORTLISTED FOR THE PENDERYN MUSIC BOOK PRIZE

Art Sex Music is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades.

It is the account of an artist who, as part of COUM Transmissions, represented Britain at the IXth Biennale de Paris, whose Prostitution show at the ICA in 1976 caused the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn to declare her, COUM and Throbbing Gristle 'Wreckers of Civilisation' . . . shortly before he was arrested for indecent exposure, and whose work continues to be held at the vanguard of contemporary art.

And it is the story of her work as a pornographic model and striptease artiste which challenged assumptions about morality, erotica and art.

Art Sex Music is the wise, shocking and elegant autobiography of Cosey Fanni Tutti.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"I love Cosey Fanni Tutti. Simple as that." — Nick Cave















"'Far out' was once a term referring to the avant-garde in both visual and musical art. Cosey was 'Far Out' from the off as far as I can remember. Some performer/artists may take it up to the limit; Cosey's art STARTS from the accepted limit." —Robert Wyatt















"Cosey Fanni Tutti is the personification of self empowerment, her art and music has made an imprint unto several generations of curious minds. We all imagine the stories of our heroes, but it's a true pleasure to hear them from the original Wrecker of Civilisation herself." —Sasha Grey
