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.

Limited copies of WIPE 77 are available for sale for $20 US (including international p&p) email for further details.

ReSite no.7, Vol-2 are bound!


ReSite – Manual of Scores, Manifestos & Radical Actions

Well, Australia has a new government and its international relations are already at an all time low. Field Study hopes to counterbalance this with a multicultural issue of ReSite! As with past ReSites, the traditions of Fluxus are alive and well in such works as JF Chapelle & Horst Baur’s re-workings of the Fluxus manifesto, to Reed Altemus’ documentation of his version of Foam Book by Geoffrey Hendricks. This is a time for No More Dictatorships as expressed by Lubomyr Tymkiv, so maybe rather then use your Donkey Vote stamps, it might be time to call on Dirty Harry to clean up the garbage!

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.

David Dellafiora, October 2013

This issue of ReSite is dedicated to the memory of Günther Ruch (1942-2013)
