Kennedy Browne is the collaborative practice of Gareth Kennedy and Sarah Browne, established in 2005.
Kennedy Browne seeks to address the supposedly eternal narrative of neoliberal capitalism as a fiction, and to do so by generating Other, competing fictions in order to cultivate new political imaginaries of difference. They often source existing, marginalised materials from within the plot of global capitalism, working with processes of collation and redaction to develop new scripts. This use of readymade material in combination with a collaborative method of scripting ensures that Kennedy Browne’s fictions are networked to a complex variety of reference points. Together they primarily produce digital video work, and in 2017 are developing a new project in virtual reality.
