The Tunnel are a group of artists, poets and theorists involved in exhibitions and events all over London.

This is a collaborative pop up exhibition featuring work that is created by using the cut-up technique.

The Cut-up technique can be traced back to the poet Tristan Tzara of the Dadaists. It was later used by Gil Wolman of the Letterist International in the 1950’s. It was further developed by the painter Brion Gysin who in turn introduced it to William S. Burroughs at the Beat Hotel in 1959. Burroughs used this method to create the infamous Naked Lunch(1959) and also in the Nova trilogy.

William S Burroughs and Brion Gysin published a book entitled The Third Mind in 1977 which featured various cut ups. David Bowie used this technique to create lyrics so did Thom Yorke of Radiohead who used the a similar method on the album Kid A (2000).
