Public art mavericks Field Theory continue their deconstruction of radio with a broadcast of ‘Book Club’ presented by the NGV and Melbourne Art Book Fair. Expect pretentious reviews, vendettas, overly expressive readings and lots of awkward interviews as Field Theory get thoroughly textual in a six-hour, non-stop program.

Field Theory is a collective of six Australian artists who make, curate and support art in the public realm.
