The Happy Hypocrite – Linguistic Hardcore, issue 1

Edited by Maria Fusco (2008)


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, the first issue, an interview, a translation, a short story, notes on time, some possible captions, Bananas and an index.
