Brick Lane’s Day of Killing

Comments & Replies

On the Czech artist David Cerny and the ‘Day of Killing’ he introduced to East London’s Brick Lane as part of the art festival Edge 92. Published in the Guardian 26 May 1992.

A few days ago, a poster appeared in East London’s Brick Lane proclaiming a ‘Day of Killing’ to be held once a year, or whenever ‘the population level becomes dangerously high’. The event would be open to anyone able to hold a gun, and those with disabilities would be permitted to kill by proxy, so long as they had completed the appropriate form and submitted it one week in advance.Download article»
