Cosey Fanni Tutti – Chinwags at Outlaws - Leeds International Festival

Cosey Fanni Tutti – Chinwags at Outlaws

‘Chinwag’ is an easy-going unstructured chat between psychotherapist Chris Madden and cultural icons about life and the universe.

As part of L18, Chinwag at the Outlaws Yacht Club welcomed Cosey Fanni Tutti – punk, pioneer, pornographer, and provocateur. At this intimate event, the influential performer whose art and music inspired a generation talked about how her work rocked the establishment to its core.

Cosey regaled her devoted audience about how she became known for her performance art, her work in the sex industry, as co-founder of Throbbing Gristle, and her pioneering electronic music as half of Chris & Cosey and Carter Tutti.

Her memoir, ‘Art Sex Music’ (published in 2017) was Sunday Times, Telegraph, Rough Trade, Pitchfork and Uncut Music Book of the Year, and was longlisted for the Penderyn Music Book Prize.
