Tim Etchells: Vacuum Days

Tim Etchells: Vacuum Days
Library Shelf Location 18.ETCH
Publication Date 2012

Throughout 2011, Tim Etchells’ Vacuum Days created online announcements for a rolling programme of imaginary events. Spelled out in overzealous capitals and small print, the project website was updated each day in a distorted process of call and response with unfolding political situations and events.

In this published version of Vacuum Days, Etchells explores the zone of sensationalist media, news-as-pornography, hyped-up current affairs, Internet spam, twitter gossip and tabloid headlines. Vacuum Days – a Dadaist year book of sorts – conjures a set of caustic, farfetched, unlikely, absurd and uncomfortable performances, lectures, contests, fights, film screenings and other forms of public display.
