Bart Price

still from Good Vibes Only (2021)

Bart Price’s practice is grounded in the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk – or “total artwork”, describing a creative process where different art forms are combined to create a single cohesive whole. More recently, Price has been generating AI scripts, created using neural network language models, as the basis to make a new video series, blending his own footage with HD stock clips and royalty-free music, to explore themes of posthumanism, late capitalism and hyperreality. He has previously directed two experimental theatre performances at the V&A, and has created surreal DIY music videos for the Mercury Prize-shortlisted Black Country, New Road. | @therealbartprice
