This edition is a still from Tony Cokes’ iconic work Evil.16 (Torture.Musik) (2009-11). The quotation is from a text by Moustafa Bayoumi titled ‘Disco Inferno’ which appeared in The Nation (26 December 2005). The text discusses the use of music blasted at high volume as a method of torturing detainees in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. Tracks by Britney Spears, David Gray’s ‘Babylon’, and Metallica were used in rooms referred to as ’The Disco’, weaponizing popular music to traumatise. Produced on the occasion of Tony Cokes’ exhibition If UR Reading This It’s 2 Late: Vol. 1.
