Synopsis

Jeremy Deller Joy in People by Ralph Rugoff, Rob Young, Stuart Hall

Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 24 May 2012.

Jeremy Deller was born in London in 1966 and studied History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art and Sussex University. He won the Turner Prize in 2004 for his installation Memory Bucket (2003) a documentary about Crawford, Texas the hometown of George W Bush, and the siege in nearby Waco. Acting as curator, producer or director, his expansive approach to making art is based on participation and collaboration often with groups outside of mainstream cultural and social activity. One of his most acclaimed projects, The Battle of Orgreave, recreated an important event during the 1984/5 miners strike with original participants and historical re-enactment societies. His work is represented by The Modern Institute, Glasgow and Gavin Brown's Enterprise, New York.
