The desire to communicate might be considered one of the most powerful forces behind the production of art, but it is the fallibility of communication that provides the subject matter for Incommunicado.
Including original artists' pages and essays relating to communication breakdown in art, film, philosophy and literature, this catalogue delves into this rich area of research and uncovers its many manifestations: vocal, expressive, linguistic, technological, cultural and political.
A National Touring Exhibition organised by the Hayward Gallery for the Arts Council of England.
