Maurice Berger, editor New Observations. No. 61 (October 1988) Paracriticism 2: Dissent
New York, NY: New Observations Ltd.. 1988
Synopsis: Begun in the early Eighties, this artist-run periodical features a wide range of visual art, artists’ projects, essays, poetry, and fiction; each issue is guest-edited and devoted to a specific cultural theme.
"The age of Reagan can be characterized by a myopic and heartless decline of government funding for the ever increasing ranks of desperate Americans... Rather than ignoring such social injustice (or seeing it as irrelevant), a number of artists ... have chosen to act as full participants in society rather than buy into the myth of the artist as the bohemian or the dandy who lives outside the reality of class." (from editor Maurice Berger's introductory essay "What Does Homelessness Have to do with Art?")
