Over the course of two months, politically motivated Irish artists’ work has appeared at Adobe Books Backroom Gallery informed by the officialness of Irishness and the Irish state, and the absurdo-political methodologies of Dadaism both tracing their origins to 1916.

New events have taken place every Thursday. The show is never complete. It constantly evolves, and ends in its own overproduction. Works include: a frieze comprised of politician’s handshakes, a reading room, video documentation of the destruction of a BMW, the poetry of market forces, a publication, a ‘deflated’ Classical column, a lot of spilt milk, a reading of Finnegan’s Wake, a live mash up of the Uileann Pipes and Oasis, and tea and scones with the Irish Consul General at the closing event on Thursday, March 29th.
