MARK STEWART & THE MAFFIA LIBERTY CITY OFFICIAL VIDEO

Mark Stewart has revealed the official video for 'Liberty City' as part of the definitive reissue of 'Learning To Cope With Cowardice'
An interdisciplinary collaboration between Mark Stewart & renowned avant-garde choreographer Mehmet Sander

'A stunning glimpse into the mind of two brilliant creators.' Pop Matters

'Giving new meaning to the pioneering industrial-dub & post-punk track' The Quietus

“Me and Mehmet are keen collaborators reimagining zones for performing bodies. In this piece we take the principles of total physical and audio liberation to its endgame, even if we arrive at that point through the means of excess and overload. Classical readings of dance purport that all movement is made in relation to form. What Foucault pointed out was that the production of the ‘subject’ – which both me and Mehmet believe is crucial in this age of discipline, punishment and negative entropy – is, in fact, our ‘carceral archipelago’“ Mark Stewart

The ‘Liberty City’ video is the first ever visual document to accompany material from Mark Stewart’s debut solo album 'Learning To Cope With Cowardice'

'Learning To Cope With Cowardice' will be released on Mute alongside 'The Lost Tapes', a newly discovered cache of unreleased material. The release is out on double vinyl, double CD and as a limited edition double clear vinyl (with a percentage of the vinyl sales going to the Mercy Ships charity) on 25 January 2019.
