Charles Atlas, Hail the New Puritan (excerpt), 1985-86

1985-86, video, 5:09

From the Tate Modern's website: “A vivid invocation of the studied decadence of the 1980s post-punk London subculture, Hail the New Puritan is an exuberant and witty day-in-the-life ‘docufantasy’ starring the British dance celebrity Michael Clark and punk drag legend Leigh Bowery.”
