The Journal Of Field Study International
Welcome to 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution and the creation of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain, brought together on the cover of the 2017 Field Report.
Museum of lost Public Notices created an alternative gallery for alternative public notices while a number of milestones were reached in 2017. These include the last issue of Susanna Lakner’s 22 assembling publication and the 10th anniversary of Claudio Romeo’s Dododada and No Frills Art Publications’ Mash Up Zines.
Poetry, poetical references and text are prominent in a number of works – The Tree of Poetry complements the Poeme pour Field Study, while Benedict Phillips starts an exploration of the magical qualities of language. Text also is examined as an action (The Long March Extended) and as a line of thought (which leads to walking).
Siggi Liersch celebrated assembling publications with Installation of a Mail Artist while there was also a re-enactment of Homage to Vera Mukhina
The abject also features, in deteriorating candy and flattened sculptures. Looking down, “art is where you find it” or maybe it is “deadly work underground”. Cooper Spowart look down in search of spiral jetty and a salamander crosses Renée Magaña’s path.

Field Study publications were also showcased in the travelling exhibition, Self-Made-Zines and Artist Books.
