Cosey Fanni Tutti


Rough Trade Books of the Year 2017 No: 2

Art Sex Music is the shocking and wise autobiography of electronic music pioneer Cosey Fanni Tutti. A founding member of the legendary avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey, Tutti has consistently challenged the boundaries of music and art 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.
