ReSite N0.8 Vol.2 is here.


ReSite – Manual of Scores, Manifestos & Radical Actions

Tweet Twoosh To A Nightingale to a friend, enlarge a flag, record a Rural Scene or sign Fluxus - these are just some of the actions you will find in the latest issue of ReSite. With a cover inspired by Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange and a piece in homage to Mary Richardson’s suffragette action, this publication is a call to arms in a world in which most of contemporary art has lost its radical edge.

ReSite is an assembling publication where pages have an element of audience participation or interaction. ReSite is part of the tradition of Fluxus editions where anyone can perform an action or score. In addition to this performance-based approach, ReSite taps into the rich tradition of the avant-garde with contributions of manifestos and documentation of art actions.

ReSite encourages participation by writers and musicians to produce visual scores and manifestos as well as continuing the call for contributions by conceptual artists. Please pass on the word to anyone who would like to be in future issues.

Wipe is a small assembling publication in which toilet paper is the medium. The use of a nonarchival, indeed anti-archival medium, is intentional, with the ephemerality and fragility of the medium insharp contrast with the artistic concern for archival materials. Conceived as a playful lightweight publication to circumvent postage costs, Wipe nods to Duchamp’s urinal and challenges contributors to make work on a medium that is almost anti-art.

Contributors source their own toilet paper, a source of fascination in itself and a comment on the hygiene practices of different societies. In spite of its intended ephemerality, toilet paper allows rubberstamping, stitching, collaging, and even frottaging. When 20 contributions are received, Wipe is distributed to participants by mail.
