Social Surrealism is an audio CD interview with the celebrated British artist, Jeremy Deller.
In 2004 Deller was awarded the Turner Prize for his multimedia installation Memory Bucket.
His signature work The Battle of Orgreave (2001) focuses on a critical moment of the international trade union movement, inviting us to a subtly differentiated examination of history.
It forms only one part of a growing catalogue of projects that can be read as an ongoing processional body of work which examines, reflects upon and influences our society.
Since his Manchester Procession, Deller uses the Term ‘Social Surrealism’ to describe his practise: going back to the original idea of carnival and procession, which is about inverting reality and changing reality if only for a day or a week and changing how we look at the world.
