Publisher: Ross W
Format: Softcover, with red plastic bag.
Volume: 3 (of 3)
Printed over 3 volumes, this publication brings together Cosey Fanni Tutti's interventions within the world of adult entertainment, providing a rare document of her clandestine appearances within the porn industry. During the 70's and 80's she was featured across the pages of numerous adult magazines - publications such as Playbirds Vol.1 No.5 (1970), Journal of Sex Vol.1 No.1 (1976), Club International Vol.5 No.8 (1976) and Partner Magazine Vol.1 No.9 (1980).
Provoking both feminists and conventionalists in equal measure, Cosey's forays into the world of the sex industry can perhaps be better understood as an extension of her boundary pushing performance art as both a solo artist and founding member of the notorious COUM Transmissions collective, established in Hull in the late 1960's with Genesis P-Orridge. Cosey Fanni Tutti's experiments with sex work and pornography during the 70's and 80's flagrantly blurred the lines between sex, exploitation and art.
