Notes from the Necronauts

Just a quick post to let you know that on Saturday 17th January, at 4.30 p.m., the INS Joint Declaration on Inauthenticity, by Tom McCarthy and Simon Critchley, is to be delivered in the Clore Auditorium of Tate Britain. This is the statement, originally delivered in The Drawing Center, New York, that Zadie Smith goes on about at some length in her recent New York Review of Books piece on Remainder, and that Peter Schwenger claims in Triple Canopy "didn't actually take place". Please go and decide for yourself how authentic or in- it is, and say hello to Tom and Simon afterwards (the Tate's generously serving free drinks to all who come).

You have to buy a ticket in advance: or 020 7887 8888

If you think you qualify for a press pass, contact INS Propaganda Dept, explain who you're writing/filming for and you'll get in free: or Anthony Auerbach on 07775 785112

The event is the fulcrum of the Tate Triennial Prologue, curated by Nicolas Bourriaud:

Hope to see you there!

AG & Tom McCarthy
