The Happy Hypocrite – Hunting and Gathering, issue 2

Edited by Maria Fusco (2008)


On occasion on the 12th and final issue of  The Happy Hypocrite Without Reduction, all back issues are reduced to £5 until the end of September 2021.

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 issue bodies of new writing present techniques of collage & bricolage, found text and image, interspersed with appropriated and parodic writing.
