Last week saw the first Nuclear Culture site visit to the HMS Courageous in Plymouth. Artists Nick Crowe, Ian Rawlinson and Susan Schuppli as well as curators Ele Carpenter and Lucia Garavaglia spent an eventful couple of days in Plymouth, a beautiful city full of palm trees and sea views. As well as being immersed in the Cold War logic of nuclear submarines, the trip provided an opportunity to get a quick overview of contemporary art in Plymouth and the culture of the city.
Thanks Lisa for setting me up with a basic blog. We're using Drupal and open-source software content management system. The site is part of several research processes which intersect in different ways. Technically it's part of Lisa Haskell's research into the small-scale development of content management systems for community organisations.
