Showboat: Punk / Sex / Bodies
Forward by Toby Mott
Published by Dashwood Books, New York, 2016
On the occasion of the travelling exhibition Showboat: Punk / Sex / Bodies, editor Toby Mott has delved into his archive of punk ephemera, The Mott Collection, to provide us with a chronological survey of the relationship between punk and sex—as seen through original posters, flyers, record covers, photographs and editorial features.
Beginning in 1972 and spanning right up to the present day, Showboat features contributions from Julie Burchill, Paul Cook, Vivien Goldman, Eve Libertine, Richard Kern, Bruce LaBruce, Amos Poe, Richard Prince and Will Self among many others, and explores the sex in punk and punk in sex.
