Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Happy Hypocrite is a biannual journal led by artists’ writings. Informed by a lineage of modern experimental and avant-garde magazines, such as: Bananas, Documents, The Fox, Merlin and Tracks, this journal aspires to unpack the methodology of such key journals, whilst providing a brand new approach to art writing. It will provide a greatly needed testing ground for new writing and research-based projects, somewhere for artists, writers and theorists to express experimental ideas that might not otherwise be realised or published.

In this issue new writing, text and images, a blackboard, an interview, surveillance photographs, heroes, and a blasted copy of the Canadian Indian Act of 1867.

Contributors: Mark Von Schlegall, Nick Thurston, Natasha Soobramanien, Rachelle Sawatsky, Luke Pendrell, Laura Oldfield Ford, Sean Lynch, Robert Longo, Yve Lomax, Daniel Kane, Anthony Iles, Candice Hopkins, Jeff Derkson, Bernadette Buckley.
