John Russell was a founder member of the art group BANK (1990-2000) and as part of that collective practice
produced of a series of dynamic exhibitions throughout the 1990s. Since January 2000 he has worked
independently and collaboratively including the publication Frozen Tears 1-3. His work, is shown internationally,
most recently at Tate Modern and MOMA/PS1, New York. In this talk, Russell will reflect on the political
potential of cliché and Benjamin's concept of 'dialectical image', and discuss artworks produced since 1990.
This includes the BANK years, as well as more recent collaborative performances and large-scale digital work.
