by Sarah Durcan

Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ), 2017, v. 6, no. 1&2, pp. 266-273

Review of Mark Leckey's video installation Dream English Kid 1964-1999 AD (2015). Author Durcan argues that the work of Leckey and other British or UK-based artists like Elizabeth Price, Stephen Sutcliffe, Duncan Campbell, James Richards and Mairéad McClean is best understood in its relation to the idea of software and its effects on culture.
