Each "article" is a documentation by the artist of an event he performed in a series called "12 Evenings of Manipulations". | In their manifesto, the artists explained their intent of "filling a vacuum -- bridging a gap left by the profiteering proselytizers of culture. This Is a unique communique to you from artists who are concerned with the corruption of culture by profit. We believe the function of the artist is to subvert culture, since our culture Is trivial. We are intent on giving a voice to the artist who shouts fire when there is a fire; robbery when there Is a robbery; murder when there is a murder; rape when there is a rape. Judson Publications will attempt to serve the public for as long as the trivial culture of the establishment distracts us from the screams of crisis". | The original publication of 500 copies (run off by the artists on a small press in the church) was distributed free; in keeping with the same spirit, this Issue is sent free to you by ASPEN. | 12 EVENINGS OF MANIPULATIONS: JON HENDRICKS (SOME NOTES) + RALPH ORTIZ (DESTRUCTION ROOM) + BICI HENDRICKS (DETERIORATIONS) + JEAN TOCHE (ART EXPERIMENTS IN SENSORY DEPRIVATION) + ALLAN KAPROW (REARRANGEMENT) + AL HANSEN + GEOFFREY HENDRICKS (SKY/CHANGE) + STEVE ROSE (ART DEMONSTRATION: HEAVY YOGA) + CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN (DIVISIONS & RUBBLE) + LIL PICARD (CONSTRUCTION-DESTRUCTION-CONSTRUCTION) + KATE MILLETT (NO) + NAM JUNE PAIK, CHARLOTTE MOORMAN, JUD YALKUT, KEN JACOBS, TAKAHIKO IIMURA

►Jean Toche: Die Kultur der Angst (The Culture Of Fear) | Editor: Matthias Reichelt | Distillery 36 | Berlin, Germany 2010 | 80 p. | 14.5 x 22.5 cm | ISBN 9783941330276 | This book assembles the work of Belgian-American artist Jean Toche, known for his political collages that employ text and image to critically examine a decadent consumer-driven society. Toche’s large scale collages attack current American politics with gumption and forthrightness in texts that certainly do not mince words. The public forcefulness of the texts are balanced by images of Toche’s own body, private yet unashamedly exhibited and often awkwardly photographed to reveal a somewhat uncomfortable intimacy through a rejection conventional expectations of body ideals.
