Back from the Art Strike 1990-1993
This issue marks the return of the PhotoStatic title after a three-year absence in support of a project of the Neoists called Art Strike 1990-1993. An explanation of the reasons behind this collective action would be too long to go into here. To find out more, visit the YAWN site, a nearly exhaustive repository of Art Strike material.
The Art Strike had a forceful impact on the PhotoStatic project. Up until 1989, PhotoStatic was a regularly-appearing periodical with a ‘Retrofuturism’ section. The force of the Art Strike made PhotoStatic splinter into a bewildering array of related titles. These include:
- PhotoStatic Magazine
- Retrofuturism (Quarterly)
- YAWN: Sporadic Critique of Culture +
- Bulletin of the Copyright Violation Squad +
- The Expatriot +
All titles fit into the same continuum of pagination. Therefore all are recognized as a part of this site’s purview, and therefore accessible from it. These additional titles are treated here as supplemental materials, and can be accessed through the many plus-sign (+) anchors scattered throughout the site.
