AS OF 16TH JUNE THE ADP RIOT TOUR HAS BEEN AWARDED £49,000 BY THE ARTS COUNCIL OF ENGLAND IN SUPPORT OF WHAT THEY’VE DESCRIBED AS AN OUTSTANDING PROJECT.
So, as predicted we are now FUNDED BY THE STATE FOR THE STATE or FUNDED BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE or maybe WASTING TAX PAYERS MONEY AT 36 HISTORIC RIOT SITES AROUND THE COUNTRY, or even: PROVIDING AN OUTSTANDING and CRITICALLY ENGAGING ARTWORK FOR FREE TO A DIVERSE RANGE OF COMMUNITIES ON A NATIONWIDE SCALE…
YOU CAN BE THE JUDGE
On a practical level, the Arts Council money makes the realisation of the complete tour more secure. BUT we cannot rest on our laurels. £49K was the most we could ask for without the application becoming too complicated. According to our budget plans we still need to raise another £50K (at least) over the next 6 months to keep the ball rolling.
SO please continue with your fantastic support and buy what you can to help keep the ADP containers on the move.
Date change…..Beanfield/Stonehenge only at the Dunky Diner…..Mon 20th June 12 noon
(revised press release)
Carnage on streets of Norwich
Press Information for immediate release: [insert date]
– Articulated lorry in fast food restaurant crash horror
– Riot police block all major routes to and from city
– Senior Minister appears at emergency press conference
– Fire crews tackle blaze at historic church
– Looting and vandalism rife
The fine city of Norwich has never witnessed such devastating scenes of destruction and chaos. So it will come as great comfort to citizens to learn that it is on an incrediby small scale—1:87 to be precise—and safely contained within a 40ft shipping container, as part of a surreal model village experience visiting the city.
TheAftermath Dislocation Principle (ADP) is a post-riot landscape created in miniature by acclaimed artist Jimmy Cauty — co-creator of chart-topping band The KLF and its subsequent, million pound-burning arts incarnation The K Foundation.
Following ADP’s critically-acclaimed appearance at Banksy’s Dismaland last summer, the installation has taken to the road, re-housed in a specially converted shipping container, which will open its doors to visitors across the country, at the sites of historic riots.
ADP Riot Tour‘s visit to Norwich on [insert date] will see it take up residence at [insert location], scene of Kett’s Rebellion in [insert year], which saw [insert details].
Far from inciting another riot, the event’s organisers hope the experience will be a peaceful and thought-provoking one, with the the only real disturbance being the constant chatter of miniature police radios, dotted all over the exhibit.
PRESS RELEASE MARCH 2016
THE AFTERMATH DISLOCATION PRINCIPLE (ADP)
ADP RIOT TOUR 2016
23rd April – 25th December 2016
At 35+ sites across the UK
Private View: Bruton Art Factory, Somerset 23rd – 28th April 2016 Trinity Centre for the People 29th April – 9th May
and so on Ending in Bedford on Christmas Day
Housed in a 40 ft shipping container, The Aftermath Dislocation Principle (ADP) is a monumental post-riot landscape in miniature. This dystopian model village is set somewhere in Bedfordshire, where only the police and media teams remain in an otherwise deserted, wrecked and dislocated land – all in 1:87 scale and viewed through peepholes in the side of the container.
The origins of this piece lie in a series of works known as A Riot in a Jam Jar (L-13, 2011). Here Cauty constructed tiny scenes of a riotous nature inside upturned jam jars in which violence, humour and socio-political commentary vied for position in
contained and domesticated bite-size portions. Likewise, The ADP in a Shipping Container plays out its viewing requirements according to the nature of its construction – not this time for mantelpieces, display cases and gallery plinths but as a totally self-contained off-grid artwork that can go anywhere, to be where it is needed, to seek its audience. The ADP tour explicitly draws on the iconography of the travelling show, the spectacular attraction or the hit and run event, and plays that off against the transient violence and upheaval of civil disorder followed by its aftermath … always moving on, powering across the country on a 30-tonne haulage truck, in parody of the alleged contagion and momentum of riotousness itself.
The concept of the tour evolved during the development of the work, reflecting the meanings inherent in both its form and content. When it was realised that the model was best viewed through peepholes, it became apparent that it should be enclosed. When it was clear that it would fit neatly inside a 40 ft shipping container, it became obvious that the work should travel … but to where? Although not explicit, its relationship to A Riot in a Jam Jar suggests that the ADP’s ruined landscape is the result of some kind of mass riot:
“… the proffered narrative telling us about an undefined upheaval, a riot with no articulated catalyst and an odd outcome. The only people left populating the dystopian ruin are the police – the rioters nowhere to be seen. In the absence of civilians to perform disobedience it falls to the constabulary. They paint graffiti, or scratch their heads”.
Augustin Macellari, Crack Magazine, 10.03.2016
As such, the creative ‘logic’ for the tour demands that the ADP should visit riot sites around the country to explore this function of cause and effect, this narrative of bemusement – sites where a riot or significant civil unrest has occurred: places of real ‘Aftermath’, be it from more recent events or historic ones significant in the development of our socio-political and cultural landscape. In no way is the intention to explain the ADP concept or to romanticise the role of social disorder, but instead to tap into that stream of consciousness, whether radical or reactionary, pitting historical narratives against Cauty’s more chaotic, (and ironically) less contained creation.
In support of this proposition we have commissioned Ian Hernon1 to write a short 1 Author of RIOT!: The History of Civil Insurrection from Peterloo to Present Day, Pluto Press 2006.
essay summarising the history of civil insurrection in the UK, and its cause and effect on our social order. This will be published in a book accompanying the tour, sitting alongside photographic details of the model and a contrasting essay by Jonathan Downing which draws on eschatological and existential narratives in the work.2
Furthermore, at each stage of the tour we will broaden these frameworks through the fine tradition of pamphleteering; issuing colourful ADP propaganda alongside more level-headed leaflets that discuss each location’s ‘riot’. Social media will be co-opted in the same way, and our exhibiting partners around the country (arts institutions or charities, smaller groups, or committed individuals) will also be encouraged to develop their own events and programmes around the ADP and to engage their local communities in any way they see fit.
From previous engagements with the ADP (before it was containe(re)d), we understand the broad appeal of this artwork and its compelling allure. Its construction from traditional (if somewhat subverted) model-making kits gives the work an instantly understandable, recognisable, and almost filmic quality, where the glee of its deconstructive confusion can be played out through direct channels. It is easy to understand, yet complicated. From small children to the art literati, viewing times are drawn out occasions as the finer details of this intricate work are discovered, often accompanied by chuckles of laughter. It is also not uncommon for multiple visits to take place, and through these engagements the work is explored and, as a result, it comes alive. So, as the ADP makes its way among over 35 sites across the country, we hope to generate a continual feedback loop of stories and meanings as greater numbers of people are exposed to this project, developing new audiences and establishing the ADP as a major, innovative, and ongoing artwork.
2 To be discussed further following the final tour date in Bedford on Christmas Day. Downing’s essay also extends the ADP narrative of ‘Old Bedford’ to the creation of the utopian extensions of ‘New Bedford’, which were in turn influenced by a review he wrote (for the Prophetic Inspiration and Scriptural Authority project site) after viewing the original model at Banksy’s Dismaland in August 2015.
The 2016 ADP Tour launches with a Private View at the Bruton Art Factory in Somerset (23rd April), then moves swiftly on the Trinity Centre for the People for Mayday, where it will stay for 2 weeks, coinciding with the Anarchist’s Book Fair and the centre’s annual garden party. Then it will travel down to Exeter for the city’s annual Art Week, where it will be shown in the shopping centre as part of the NOSE programme. After that it will go to Cardiff to be hosted by the Metropolitan University, then through Merthyr, on to Birmingham, Northampton and so on.

ADP 3 has been selected by Richard Wilson RA for the Summer Exhibition 2016
The Aftermath Dislocation Principle part 3 (ADP 3): THE BRIDGE
ADP 3 ‘THE BRIDGE’ is the third piece in a trilogy of artworks by Jimmy Cauty known as The Aftermath Dislocation Principle.
Housed in a 6x6x6 ft shipping container and viewed through observation ports in the sides, ADP 3 contains a 1:87 scale model of a wrecked suspension bridge, isolated above a turbulent stretch of water. It is the linking work between ADP 1 and ADP 2. ADP 1 being a 40ft shipping container that houses a vast post-apocalyptic landscape sited somewhere in Bedfordshire – a mythical middle England, and ADP 2 is a 10 ft container that houses the building site of a monolithic construction. This is ‘NEW BEDFORD RISING’, a monumental utopian tower being built by the inhabitants of The Aftermath Dislocation Principle – principally 3000 tiny policemen and accompanying media crews. New Bedford is being raised to offer security and order for the ADP populace and stands in juxtaposition to the chaotic wreckage beyond the river. ‘THE BRIDGE’ of course is broken and some policemen are stranded on top whilst others attempt to cross the perilous stretch of water in a variety of hopeless vessels.
All three models are housed in containers so they can travel: to be shipped and shown in almost any situation. And that is exactly what they do. They are totally self-contained off-grid artworks that can go anywhere, to be where they are needed, to seek their audience. In fulfilment of this, ADP 1 is spending the duration of 2016 on a nationwide UK tour: On a pilgrimage to over 36 historic riot sites around the country, whilst the smaller ‘utopian’ containers are being shown more sporadically in a variety of engagements. From the extreme to the mundane to the populist and elitist, the exhibition sites ranging from muddy fields and small community centres to major national art galleries. This tour, known as the ADP Riot Tour (#AdpRiotTour), ends on Christmas Day, 2016 in Bedford, at the Panacea Museum, with all three containers being sited together for the first time ever in the former Panacea Society’s ‘Garden of Eden’.

America Street, SE1 0NJ
Following the media scrum and high density crowds of Dismaland, for those unable to attend and for those who were rushed through, L-13 LIW and Illuminate Productions are pleased to present Jimmy Cautyʼs Aftermath Dislocation Principle (The ADP) for public exhibition in London.
Crashing together the boundaries of high art and mass culture, The ADP is a monumental post-riot landscape in miniature; a dystopian model village where only
the police and media teams remain in an otherwise deserted, wrecked and dislocated land.
It seems that in this ʻpost-eventʼ world the police have nothing left to do and some, becoming aware of their predicament, peer nervously over the edge into the chasm.
Jimmy Cauty and his small team of helpers painstakingly created this vast and intricate scene over a period of 9 months using traditional model making materials and techniques. Entering into the world of hobbyist model-makers and turning it on its head, The ADP presents a flipside narrative packed with exquisite detail and apocalyptic humour, making for an intensely engaging experience.
NEW BEDFORD UNDER CONSTRUCTION
A POST DISLOCATION PARADISE IN PROGRESS
During the exhibition visitors can also witness the construction of a new section of the model being made onsite
in a makeshift ADP Workshop.
NEW BEDFORD RISING
Connected to the main section, via a suspension bridge, will be a massive construction site in the shape of the Tower of Babel. A spiral city where an immense (1/87 scale) 323 metre Solid Gold Pyramid is being built to usher in a New Edenic Era that the constabulary believe is imminent. New Bedford is rising from the wreckage; a paradise where policemen and women can roam free, living idyllic lives and raising their young in a crime free epoch of law and order, peace, and eternal bliss. Sponsored by Greggs and the Panacea Society.
