It Felt Like a Kiss (2009)

It Felt Like a Kiss (2009), a collaboration between site-specific adventurers Punchdrunk, experimental documentary-maker Adam Curtis and Britpop renaissance man Damon Albarn, is a remarkable requiem for post-war Western affluence and idealism. Occupying five floors of an old office block, its labyrinth of rooms contains an encrypted critique of the liberated individualism that sprang from the States in the Fifties and Sixties.


It Felt Like a Kiss (2009) is Adam Curtis’s psycho-archaeological dig into the mass psychosis that is the American Empire, buoyed by the most jubilant music imaginable.
