Ginger&Piss #2, Gay

Kunstverein’s in-house magazine is a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Each issue ​of Ginger&Piss (the name is a misquotation of Lawrence Weiner) contains a limited amount of contributions that vary in length according to the subject matter at hand. The remit of Ginger&Piss​ is simple: to provide a platform for candid critique but at the same time allow the author to stay hidden. Therefore, the concept dictates that each contributor writes under a pseudonym. The use of pseudonyms can be considered an answer to the cowardice of the art world, albeit a somewhat hypocritical one. ‘Gay’ is the subject of the second issue of Ginger&Piss and it continues the magazine’s flirtation with all-purpose (non)themes. As a verb, an adjective, an expression and perhaps even a term of abuse, Gay may appear less one dimensional than ‘Loud’, the theme of our previous issue. Flamboyantly exhibited, the articles in this issue continue Ginger&Piss’ journey thowards immaculate speculation.

With contributions by Álvaro Coelho de Athayde II, Lylah Clare, Harrison Haymarket, Coco de Moll, Meredith Morris and R. J. Vanderhorst
