Background: During September 2012 Abandon Normal Devices (AND), a major media and art festival, will stage its final leg in Manchester. AND is jointly produced by FACT Liverpool and Cornerhouse Manchester in partnership with cultural venues and artist-run groups in the region. AND is funded by WE PLAY, the Northwest cultural legacy program for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Concept: What is success? How is the contemporary world shaped and measured by notations of success? How are dominant ideas of success propagated in our culture, environment and society? Can the ideology of success be challenged, and alternative models of success be defined?
