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.(text by Susan Hartigan)
Limited copies of WIPE 106 are available for sale for $20 US (including international p&p) email for further details.

ReSite N0.12/Vol.2 is published!

ReSite – Manual of Scores, Manifestos & Radical Actions

Just as Brian Eno urinated into Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain, ReSite calls on the audience to participate and engage. In this issue you will find instructions to create a Post Industrial Arrangement, Admit yourself to Switzerland, Move your Archive and celebrate the centenary of Fountain by placing a plaque on a urinal of your choice.
ReSite is an assembling publication in which pages have an element of audience participation or interaction. Like Fluxus editions, where anyone can perform an action or score, 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 calling for contributions by conceptual artists. Pass on the word to anyone you think would like to be in future issues.
ReSite will be on show at the Zine Scene exhibition, State Library of Victoria, 11th Aug to 12th Nov 2017.
