Carrion Culture ran alongside the International Poster Festival in Chaumont, France, each year from 1996 to 2000.

We were invited in 1996 to produce an exhibition and a group of tutors and students at Portsmouth University (department of design) each produced two posters on the theme "spectacular entertainment". After that, we continued to return each year fly-postering the town with provocative posters and set up a stall to exchange info and ideas with other visiting designers.

"The duality of culture lies in its position as both creation and creator" "La dualite de la culture reside en son statut ambivalent de creation et de createur" "The banality of culture lies in its position as both spectacle and consumer" "La banalite de la culture reside en son statut ambivalent de spectacle et de consommation"

The culture vultures are: Russell Bestley, Simon Clarke, Sarah Cleaver, Tony Credland, Joachim Hetzel, Murray McMahon, Glenn Orton, Ros Simms, Stephane Troplain and Ian Warner.
