This issue poses as a retroactive non-catalog for the group exhibition “White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart” at the Institute for Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania curated by Anthony Elms. As such, its nominal theme is Fashion. Bulletins from the edges of that world are from Angie Keefer, Robin Kinross, Joke Robaard, Brian Eno, Nick Relph
, Eli Diner, Chris Fite-Wassilak, Stuart Bailey
, Sarah Demeuse, Adloph Loos, Kuki Shûzô, Sanya Kantarovsky, and Perri MacKenzie.
Bulletins of The Serving Library
is a composite printed / electronic publication from the duo Stuart Bailey
and David Reinfurt,
that follows a direct line from Dot Dot Dot
, the semi-annual journal founded in 2000 and published by Dexter Sinister
. Across the arts and into philosophy, the “bulletins” that make up each issue are first published online as PDFs at www.servinglibrary.org
over a six-month period, then assembled, printed and distributed separately in Europe (by Sternberg Press) and in the U.S.A. (by Dexter Sinister). Each collection makes up a semester's worth of loosely-themed material, with its constituent PDFs grouped together on the website.
