Launch — The Institute of Social Hypocrisy · Fanzine No 5 (final issue)

The Insti­tute of Social Hypo­crisy invites you to the launch of Fan­zine No 5 from May 14th to 16th, 2011

Twice a year, The Insti­tute of Social Hypo­crisy pub­lishes a fan­zine. These pub­lic­a­tions serve as a tool with a dual pur­pose. Primar­ily they are a means to put out devel­op­ing art pro­jects by a range of invited artists and con­trib­ut­ors, through­out the dur­a­tion of the ISH pro­ject.

They also play anoth­er role, and via their glossy design and print pro­duc­tion they func­tion as a vehicle to put the fea­tured work and the exist­ence of the Insti­tute out into a new arena. To bring aware­ness to the pro­ject with­in a domain that is often restric­ted and to cre­ate a phys­ic­al mani­fest­a­tion that will endure after the life of the ISH is extin­guished.

These fan­zines are neither pub­lic­a­tions for ref­er­ence, nor books of com­pleted pro­jects. They are a means for artists to put their work in front of new audi­ences in order to invite input and dis­cus­sion, thus help­ing the pro­ject to devel­op. They allow the artist to take a level of con­trol and give a cer­tain inde­pend­ence with regards to the tra­di­tion­al scope of the dis­tri­bu­tion of their work.”

Vic­tor Boul­let – Stalk­ing Anselm Kiefer
To recov­er from this two year pro­ject I will be stalk­ing Anselm Kiefer for a week, just to calm down and recu­per­ate from all my hypo­crisy.
I have snapped an image of his enorm­ous man­sion here in Par­is for you to see and envy, I will sit at the cafe oppos­ite to try and catch a glimpse of his fant­ast­ic Aston Mar­tin as he comes and goes about his busi­ness, busi­ness, busi­ness.
