‘One night in 1996, when dance culture was at its glammed-up nadir,
Jeremy Deller taped a sign above the sinks in a Glaswegian club.

ADVANCE WARNING

Anyone found on the

Premises ‘on drugs’

Will be off their heads

The Management

It’s kind of funny, but it’s also kind of lame, a combination of a
shoddy Situationist stunt and one of those T-shirts that corrupt corporate
logos: The sign was peeled of the wall by a pill-popping clubber who stuck it
to his sweatshirt. This act of appropriation, says Deller, “is the greatest compliment I have ever been paid”‘

Tom Morton explores the work of Jeremy Deller from Advance Warning Sign
to Acid Brass, Secret Hand Signals for the Middle Classes, The Battle of
Orgreave, and his latest project After the Gold Rush.

Plus Rebecca Warren, Eric Wesley, Daniel Roth, Walid Raad, Deimantas Narkevicius and Kerstin Kartscher

In the front section Daniel Birnbaum celebrates Michel Majerus and his
recent Bradenburg Gate project, Michael Bracewell looks at artists’
ephemera, Dan Fox on Black Dice and Eve Meltzer visits Robert Smithson’s re-emerging Spiral Jetty.
