A show and exhibition created by a varied selection of artists, exploring the concept of modernity and its evolution through time. From the invention of the radio to the rotary telephone and the typewriter, what used to be a must in terms of modernity becomes a vintage relic of the past. The race against the foreseen obsolescence is continuous and tedious. As we collect, restore and cherish these old machines, others prefer to reroute and alter the initial purpose of the objects, giving them a new aesthetic, a new function and, therefore, a new life. Come and re-discover the past with a selection of artists at a 3 day event at Ugly Duck’s headquarters. Supported by Arts Council England, Oxford Brookes University, Oxford Contemporary Music
