description

Double / "flip" issue of the socio-political publication, The Flue, published by avant-garde arts organization, Franklin Furnace. "Franklin Furnace's mission is to present, preserve, interpret, proselytize and advocate on behalf of avant-garde art, especially forms that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect, their ephemeral nature, or politically unpopular content. Franklin Furnace is dedicated to serving artists by providing both physical and virtual venues for the presentation of time-based visual art, including but not limited to artists' books and periodicals, installation art, performance art, "variable media art"; and to undertake other activities related to these purposes. Franklin Furnace is committed to serving emerging artists; to assuming an aggressive pedagogical stance with regard to the value of avant-garde art to life; and to fostering artists' zeal to broadcast ideas." --Franklin Furnace's mission statement. Includes contributions by Martha Wilson, Linda Montano, Vanalyne Green, Linda Burnham, Micki McGee, Melvyn Freilicher, Barbara Baracks, Benita Adams, Stan Kaplan, Joan Giannecchini, Susan Mogul, George Sand, Richard Zigun, Cecilia Vicuna, Sandy De Sando, Barbara Quinn, Rose English, Rose Finn-Kelcey, Tina Keane, Sonia Knox, Hannah O'Shea, Sally Potter, Carlyle Reedy, Georgia Born, Lindsay Cooper, Feminist Art Workers, Cheri Gaulke, Leslie Labowitz, Linda Nishio, Martha Rosler, Nina Sobel, Nancy Buchanan, Barbara Smith, Susan Hiller, Suzanne Lacy, Tony Whitfield, Lisa Liebmann, and Aria Natale Starus.
