Publisher Description

For Joshua Compston, life was a special kind of nonsense; Factual Nonsense. Seen by some as the romantic martyr of his generation nd by others, as a prankster, sending up the art establishment, Compston's gallery ‘Factual Nonsense' (FN) was quite unlike any other. Called a ‘crazy powerhouse of ideas', Factual Nonsense was a cultural think-tank located in a then run-down area of the East End. Determined to change the world through art, he was a driving force that helped turn the East End of London into the cultural hub that it is today. ‘Factual Nonsense – The Art and Death of Joshua Compston' is both a biography and an alternative portrait of the 1990's art scene in London's East End. Interviewees include such legends as Jay Jopling, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Sam Taylor-Wood, Gary Hume, Gavin Turk and Sir Peter Blake.
