Collected here are more than thirty years of cultural interventions, including Art Strike Bed, Vermeer II and Becoming (M)other (in which Home re-imagines his mother’s 1960s modelling portfolio in ways that would make Cindy Sherman blush), and issues of Smile, Re-action, novels, pamphlets, films and other ephemera. In his multiple egoistic persona Home claims to have strived not just for greatness but also grooviness and is more than ever convinced that since the world is disenchanted, telling outrageous lies is the only means of approaching ‘truth’ and thus making life fabulous once again.
