Public Works is a group of media artists devoted to a core set of
ideas and working practices, among which are:

* making new works out of previously 'finished' works, thereby
commenting on the nature of cultural production

* working with limited means and mainly 'obsolete' or otherwise
'common' technology; making work that in principle could be made by

* undermining the attractive power of mass-produced works by bringing
to the surface latent, often troubling, meanings within them

* making use of aggressive and strategic recontextualisation in order
to examine how mass-produced works affect us and culture as a whole

Public Works is a close-knit group of varying membership. They have
been producing music, films and videos, writings, publications, and
works in other media since the late 1980s. Their activities draw
inspiration from punk, d.i.y., neoism, mail art, zines, and more
recently, the inherent (though increasingly threatened) open
architectures of the internet and the world wide web.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, please take a moment to
visit our newly re-designed web site. We are open to any form of
interaction that it may inspire.
