Random Rules: A Chanel of Artists’ selections from YouTube
Curated by Marina Fokidis
Many believe that since the launch of YouTube in 2005, the history of the moving image has diverted from its canonical route. The website, which makes it possible for anyone who can use a computer to post a video, reaches millions of people daily.
cover: HEIDE HATRY: HEADS AND TALESThe artist Heide Hatry initiated 3 years ago a collaborative project with 28 writers. The result was published as Heads and Tales by CHARTA Art Books, Milan/ New York in 2009. An exhibition will tour through the USA and Europe to promote the book.The portraits in Heads and Tales are photographic documentations of sculptures Heide Hatry created out of animal skin and body parts. She invited writers to select one image and create a life for her. As the work addresses issues of violence, death and gender identity, the writing reflects similar concerns as they are specific to women. “Finding a way to be a woman is finding a way to live with fatal knowledge,” says Catharine MacKinnon in her introduction, and Hatry and her collaborators speak that fatal knowledge which others are at pains to suppress.
