The Disabled Avant-Garde


The Disabled Avant-Garde (aka DAG) is a satirical organisation formed by the artists Katherine Araniello and Aaron Williamson. They create video and performance art to cause confusion and provoke debate by subverting society's perceptions and expectations of disabled people.

The DAG follow the social model of disability and their work fits the category of 'crip humour', being both pitch-black and self-knowing.

The 17 short films on this DVD cover a six year period between 2006 and 2012 and are made up of performances for camera, and documentation of live performances including invited commissions and uninvited interventions.

Below is the Disabled Avant-Garde's showreel, containing extracts of films by DAG also featured on this DVD.
