Franko B: Artist Talk

  • Wed, 27 Jul 2016
  • 6.00 PM - 8.00 PM
  • Tickets: £5/4

Internationally recognised as a pioneering performance artist, Franko B uses both his body and a punch bag as democratic tools, embodying notions of the personal, political and poetic. Join the artist as he discusses his career over the decades.


Franko B will also perform the UK Premiere of his work Milk & Blood at Bluecoat on Thu 28 Jul. 

The performance appropriates the aesthetics of boxing for thirteen two minute rounds of mental and physical endurance. Exploring themes of pain, eroticism, revulsion, ecstasy and masculinity, Franko B’s performance becomes a metaphor for social struggle and the ability to overcome. Book tickets online.
