About This Item
The K Foundation was a project conceived in 1993 to represent the artists Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond. . . . On 22 August 1994, Cauty and Drummond travelled to the island of Jura off the west coast of Scotland with a suitcase containing £1 million in new £50 notes. . . . In the early hours of 23 August, in a derelict boat house on the coast of Jura, Cauty and Drummond began to burn the money. Gimpo was handed a Hi-8 video camera and asked to film the event. The £1 million took 55 minutes to burn and the ashes were swept up and returned to the suitcase. This book sets out to explore that act. The film Watch the K Foundation Burn a Million Quid was screened at nearly thirty venues in the UK over the course of 199596. The book includes more than 100 stills from the film, with statements, letters, and verbal responses of people who attended the screenings and associated activities.
