Launch — Little Joe Issue #2

You’re invited to the launch of Little Joe Issue #2 at Motto Ber­lin on Sat­urday April 23rd

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.”
