Writes Cokes, "leeds.talk.trailer is an animated text, a script of sorts. The video outlines selected issues framing a media / lecture performance by Tony Cokes and Andrew Perchuk. This presentation, originally part of our literal speed: the performative discourse, an international conference event first erupted in March 2008 at ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany. The text, edited from the collaborators' project notes, considers the vexed relationship between modernist art criticism and art making, and their reverberations up to the present. The text is sequenced in short phrases of white words on a black background."
