Football is the quintessential communal experience. Across the world - in stadiums, bars and living rooms - countless millions of people experience collective emotion through the teams they support. Every day, football does with ease what art constantly tries to do: it makes people feel.
But it's not a one-way relationship: art's job is to deconstruct the world, to help us figure out what everything means, to offer new perspectives. The artists featured in OOF peel back the layers of meaning in this obsessive sport, and help us make sense of something bigger and more ungraspable in the process.
OOF goes a little way towards laying all of that bare. Football and art have been intertwined for centuries, and OOF is here to explore and unravel the links.
