  • CAMERA OBSCURA Ian White

    This text was commissioned to accompany the release of Richard Squires’ film PROGRAMME which premiered at New Work UK at Whitechapel, 2007. Pornography is like silent film. Both share a formal drive that turns action into a demonstration of itself for the sake of entertainment. When a door is opened in a silent film we…

Families are products of reproduction (the biological, genetical sort), as are comics and cartoons (the technological sort). The adventures of…

  • DOOZY: THE TRIUMPH OF FAILURE Benedict Morrison

    About forty minutes in, just past its halfway point, Richard Squires’ Doozy (2018) explicitly raises the issue of failure.

The next 80-odd seconds are a continual whirl of transformation, turbulence, disturbance, dislocation, indecorous responses and illogic: a mini-narrative that is…
