As a society we are constantly producing to fill the void of the new, fetishizing the contemporary,
replacing past relics with tainted reproductions of their counterparts. This consumer-based human
oft leaves behind a trail of filth in the wake of its capitalism. Much as the cockroach, James
Concannon has chosen to live in this detritus, actively re-appropriating and elevating the
dumpster. This process has equally manifested in his clothing line Dead Beuys. Teaming up with
Swedish powerhouse Deadwood and creating his self-described "punk vomit" on their recycled
leather jackets, the duo look to address this cultural disgust and continue the anarcho-driven
dialogue based on a better way.
