You Are Here: Art After the Internet. Omar Kholeif (Ed.). Cornerhouse / Space.

You Are Here: Art After the Internet is the first major publication to critically explore both the effects and affects that the Internet has had on contemporary artistic practices.

Responding to an era that has increasingly chosen to dub itself as ‘post-internet’, this collective text traces a potted narrative exploring the relationship of the Internet to art practices from the early millennium to the present day.

The book positions itself as a provocation on the current state of cultural production, relying on first-person accounts from artists, writers and curators as the primary source material.

The book raises urgent questions about how we negotiate the formal, aesthetic and conceptual relationship of art and its effects after the ubiquitous rise of the Internet.

The Little Joe Clubhouse Reader, David Edgar & Sam Ashby, Ditto Press / Little Joe.

The Little Joe Clubhouse is a specially commissioned, crafted environment that draws on ideas of withdrawal, defiant separatism and delicious seclusion, at once a den, a commune and a cinema. An expanded, interactive version of the magazine, The Clubhouse incorporates an eclectic programme of films as part of Little Joe’s ongoing endeavour to (re)map the queer histories of film.

Specially published to accompany The Clubhouse, The Little Joe Clubhouse Reader includes contributions from the artists, filmmakers and writers who selected the unique programme of films.

Contributors include A.K. Burns, Ben Campkin, Stuart Comer, Jon Davies, Ron Gregg, Bruce Hainley, Ed Halter, R Justin Hunt, Shanay Jhaveri, William E Jones, Tom Kalin, Jonathan Kemp, Kevin Killian, Wayne Koestenbaum, James Mackay, Billy Miller, Bradford Nordeen, Jenni Olson, Liz Rosenfeld, Patrick Staff, A.L.

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.
