Field Study issued its first manifesto in 1993. Influenced by the surrealist, fluxus and mail art movements it also is a logical continuation of the free press movement of the 1960s. Coordinated by David Dellafiora and Benedict Phillips, its artistic output is centred around the annual ‘Field Report’ assembling book. This tradition continues with the growth of sister assembling publications: KART, ReSite and WIPE.
With all the Field Study publications, artists contribute multiples of their work that are accepted and included with minimal editorial control or censorship. These contributions can come from all over the world and their scope is diverse and inclusive. In fact anyone is invited to become a Field Study networker, irrespective of their arts practice.
