I come from Birmingham, England, and studied philosophy at the University of Manchester.
I published three books in the 1990s: The Most Radical Gesture, which grew out of my doctoral research about the situationists; Zeros and Ones, which offers an alternative, feminist account of the history and nature of digital technology; and Writing on Drugs, which argues that the enormous influence of psychoactive substances on mainstream Western culture makes a nonsense of the so-called 'war on drugs'.
I also translate from German into English.
In the past I have taught at the Universities of Birmingham and Warwick, the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design,
and on the BA Fine Arts programme at ZHdK. I am currently teaching on the Contemporary Arts Practice MA at the HKB.
