Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven arises from postmodernism fallout. It explores our relationship with time embodied in continual cultural transformations, whether always “making it new,” recycling the past or awash in social media and online content.MoreSeventh Dream of Teenage Heaven arises from postmodernism fallout. It explores our relationship with time embodied in continual cultural transformations, whether always “making it new,” recycling the past or awash in social media and online content. These inquires are made in relation to discourses on Modernism, postmodernism and our current moment of super-hybridity, where infinite sources aggregate into one super gigantic whole. In this rapid circulation of images and ideas, where everything is always accessible, our relationship to material culture, real-time experiences and the built, spatial environment has certainly changed. But into what?This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven (January - March 2011) curating by James Voorhies and organised by Bureau for Open Culture for Columbus College of Art & Design.Featuring artists Guy Ben-Ner, Joachim Brohm, Gerard Byrne, Malcolm Cochran, Peter Dayton, Ben Kinsley, Lara Kohl, Jeremy Kost, Mark Leckey, Mary Lum, Dennis McNulty, Timothy Nazzaro, Johannes Nyholm, Pipilotti Rist, Cassandra Troyan, Jeffrey Vallance and Alejandro Vidal.
