      Some tickets for this evening's event will be available on the door.

      -----------------------------
      Pioneers in Art and Science: Gustav Metzger and Ken McMullen in
      conversation
      Presented in collaboration with Arts Council England, mediated by Ross
      Birrell
      West Yorkshire Playhouse rehearsal room 3 (above Wardrobe caf� bar)

      To coincide with the release of a new documentary film directed by Ken
      McMullen for Arts Council England, Evolution is pleased to welcome back
      Gustav Metzger. As a small child in Germany, Metzger witnessed the rise
      of Nazism in the early �30s before escaping to Great Britain aged
      thirteen. In his first auto destructive art manifesto of 1959, Metzger
      suggests a new form of public art for our industrial society, an art
      centred on the process of destruction. Fusing art with politics and
      social activism Metzger�s work offers profound insights into the
      relevance of art, and the importance of understanding the destructive
      impulses in society. Metzger will talk alongside Ken McMullen, a film
      director and artist whose work has involved collaborations with
      artists, physicists and philosophers such as Brian Eno, Lindsay
      Anderson and Jacques Derrida. Ross Birrell, Glasgow based performance
      artist and lecturer at Glasgow School of Art will mediate the event.
