ASPEN MAGAZINE No. 6A

WINTER 1968-69

 

This issue Of ASPEN is a reprint of selections from "Manipulations", published last year by a group of artists at the Judson Church Gallery in New York City. Each "article" is a documentation by the artist of an event he performed in a series called "12 Evenings of Manipulations".

In their manifesto, the artists explained their intent of "filling a vacuum -- bridging a gap left by the profiteering proselytizers of culture. This Is a unique communique to you from artists who are concerned with the corruption of culture by profit. We believe the function of the artist is to subvert culture, since our culture Is trivial. We are intent on giving a voice to the artist who shouts fire when there is a fire; robbery when there Is a robbery; murder when there is a murder; rape when there is a rape. Judson Publications will attempt to serve the public for as long as the trivial culture of the establishment distracts us from the screams of crisis".

The original publication of 500 copies (run off by the artists on a small press in the church) was distributed free; in keeping with the same spirit, this Issue is sent free to you by ASPEN.
