LITTLE JOE #2
A magazine about queers and cinema, mostly.

This issue’s cover film is Frank Ripploh’s autobiographical Taxi Zum Klo (1980), an extraordinary debut chronicling his dual life as Berlin schoolteacher and sex “hunter” which he discusses in a fascinating, candid interview, translated and published here for the first time.
The issue also features a conversation between director John Waters and Tate Modern’s curator of film Stuart Comer; an interview with artists A.K. Burns and A.L. Steiner about their sociosexual porn video, Community Action Center; an essay on the covertly queer film magazine Films and Filming; an essay on Parker Tyler, Myra Breckinridge and Mae West; John Cameron Mitchell’s Video Library; a specially commissioned short story about Sal Mineo by American poet and author Kevin Killian; and American poet and cultural critic Wayne Koestenbaum’s never-before-published talk on rarely seen Warhol epic Taylor Mead’s Ass.

94 pages, 139 x 210mm, Risograph printing. Edition of 1,000.

BLONDE by Nico Vascellari, Published by NERO

Posted in art, editions, Motto Berlin store, Motto Zürich store, photography on April 23rd, 2011

BLONDE, Nico Vascellari, Nero

Blonde is an artist’s book by Nico Vascellari, printed in 500 hand numbered copies + 33 multiples including an original work, numbered and signed by the artist. Published by NERO in collaboration with Hospital Productions.
Conceived both as a book and an artwork, Blonde is a collection of images from one of the artist’s personal archives: a selection of 200 press clippings titled “Blonde”. Each press clipping has been reproduced in its own original format on 80 gsm glossy paper, as ripped and collected by the artist over the last ten years. The whole collection, printed on unbound single sheets, is packaged in a black cardboard box, silkscreened and individually numbered.
The pages of this publication derive for the most part from fashion magazines. The iconographic theme of “the blonde” is represented obsessively. The sequence of the images is random, as is the selection of press clippings. This archive reflects the artist’s personal fetish for the image, in this case of blondes and their collective representation.
Nico Vascellari is considered one of the most important Italian artists of his generation. Coming out of the punk-hardcore scene, his work is a mix of visual art, performance and sound exploration.
