Abstract
The following is an interview with Australian live art collective Brown Council. Formed in 2007, the group has developed an extensive portfolio of interdisciplinary artworks – including video, live performance, and gallery installations – that fuse high and low art traditions in order to critique arts histories, gender, and feminine identity. The discussion below focuses on the company’s appropriation and re-working of popular culture forms and the critical possibilities this provides for them and their audiences.
