About this Item

This is a document of 1980s political art; this artist booklet was printed on newsprint and distributed with the Sunday New York Times in 1988; organized by Group Material; it features the work of Mike Glier, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Carrie Mae Weems, Felix-Gonzalez-Torres, Nancy Spero, Nancy Linn, Hans Haake, Richard Prince, and Louise Lawler; it deals with such topical issues as the AIDS pandemic, abortion, the Iran-Contra affair, gender and race equality, and the nuclear arms race. THE ARTIST BOOK: 12pp; paper wrappers, size: 11 x 8-1/4in (18x21 cm); glue bound; offset printed in b&w; edition size: 90,000; unsigned and unnumbered; each artist was given a full page for their project; project was organized by Doug Ashford, Julie Ault, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres for Group Material; "Inserts" was sponsored by the Public Art Fund and published as a supplement to the Sunday New York Times, May 22, 1988, and placed within 90,000 copies of the newspaper below 23rd Street and in the Greenpoint, Williamsburg, & Bushwick section of Brooklyn; "We had originally planned Inserts for the Daily News which is a more local less intellectual paper than The New York Times. We had been negotiating with the Daily News for about a year but never actually signed a contract. And then when we finally went to them with the mock-ups of artwork we wanted to produce they rejected it on the basis that 'it wasn't art it was editorial.' So then we took the project to The New York Times and worked with the 'advertising acceptability director' there, who was concerned that the piece by Carrie Mae Weems' work would be misunderstood by members of the audience as racist and wouldn't know it was made by an African-American artist, but eventually they accepted the project."; 2 pages are slightly torn at the edges; since it was printed on newsprint it has browned a little; issue is tight, and overall in GOOD COND.
