Well I've finally got around to saying "HAVE A HAPPY FESTIVE TIME TO YOU ALL". In between all the projects that had to be finished off - or taken to a point at which I can return to them in January, I've been preparing for the Solstice. It's a time people either love or are indifferent to and I love it - I guess because of happy magical childhood memories and then lots of grown up good xmuss times too. The rotten stinking cold/sore throat virus I've been struggling with is finally subsiding just in time. Hooray! So here's to warmth, love peace and happiness all round - goddess knows we all need that more than cheap consumer goods. Rise up 2009 we're gagging for a spirited positive axis shift.

Our CTI Web Store mail order service now has stock of the rare Japanese edition of COH PLAYS COSEY,
signed by Cosey Fanni Tutti. The Japanese release has a different Digipak and alternative cover artwork to the standard Euro/US version, otherwise the content is the same.
Please note: *



In conjunction with the Liverpool Biennial 'Made Up' there is a series of conversations which explore the themes of the Biennial. Cosey will be in conversation with Andrew Wheatley discussing the evolution of her practice and the place of sexuality as a scene of representation and disruption. The conversation begins at
2pm on Friday 24th October.

There are two new interviews with Cosey in the following publications:

HAPPY HYPOCRITE - Issue One 'Linguistic Hardcore'.
A wonderful biannual journal focussed on writing as art. Features an interview with Cosey by Maria Fusco



The collaboration project between Ivan Pavlov (
COH) and Cosey Fanni Tutti titled COH PLAYS COSEY was released on CD format on March 6th on the Raster Noton label. It has also been released in Japan with slightly different packaging. The tracks are made entirely of voice recordings by Cosey Fanni Tutti which were edited and manipulated by Ivan over a period of about 18 months. Later this year Cosey hopes to begin work on the follow-up sister album COSEY PLAYS COH.

WACK! focuses on the crucial period of the 1970s, during which the majority of feminist activism and artmaking occurred internationally. This exhibition is displayed on the entire First and Second Floors, and in the Third Floor Main Gallery from.The exhibition spans the period of 1965 to 1980 and includes 120 artists and artist groups from the United States, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. WACK! includes work by women who operated within the political structure of feminism as well as women who did not necessarily embrace feminism as part of their practice, but were impacted by the movement.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.

Cosey Fanni Tutti
and Carter Tutti Update

Some of you may already have heard, or not, but Cosey has been very ill since the beginning of the year. This meant the majority of upcoming projects and all current activities were rescheduled or put on hold. Cosey's health has improved somewhat in the last week, although she still has a way to go before a full recovery, but we are now in a position where we can attempt to slowly begin catching up with our most pressing or outstanding work.
Number one on the 'to-do' list has been starting our Feral Vapours film, which will now be released on DVD much (much) later in 2008 than was originally planned. Contributions for a number of compilations and collaborations that will be released in the coming months have also now been completed(details when we have them). There will definitely be some Carter Tutti shows in Europe this year but we are waiting on final confirmations before we make any announcements, which will be soon. In a couple of weeks we will also begin preparations for a few European Throbbing Gristle shows this Summer.
