|The left-field arts journal whose very name promises more to come delivers three issues this season. There aren't too many places to find intelligent, passionate, and jocuserious writing about the past, present, and future of visual culture and beyond. Dot Dot Dot, the brilliant journal edited by Stuart Bailey and Peter Bilak, is one of the few we've found. Dot Dot Dots 12 and 13 are conceived as sister and brother issues. Both are loosely concerned with distribution, dispersion, networks, schools, libraries and the U.S. postal service. Where issue 12 collects pieces ABOUT such subject matter, 13 attempts to DEMONSTRATE it, through its own methods of production and dissemination. The latter also doubles as a kind of school magazine for Department 1 of the abandoned Manifesta 6 School, which was due to take place on the island of cyprus in Fall 2006. Issue 14 then pursues the various lines of pedagogy, cupid and psyche. In short, each issue swallows its predecessor. Including contributions from David Reinfurt, Ian Svenonius, Katherine Gillieson, Alex Waterman, Ryan Gander, Alice Fisher, Louis Lothi, David Greene, Samantha Hardingham, John Morgan Studio, Steve Rushton, Ryan Holmberg, Mark Owens, Seth Price, Dieter Roelstraete, Chris Evans, Rob Giampietro, Dmitri Siegel, Radim Pesko, Will Holder, Benjamin Franklin, G.K. Chesterton, Lewis H. Lapham, Jan Verwoert, Mai Abu ElDahab, Louis Kaplan, Sven Augustijnen, Raimundas Malasauskas, Michael Stevenson, and many more.|
Stuart Bailey co-founded the ongoing journal Dot Dot Dot in 2000. Since 2006 he has worked together with David Reinfurt as Dexter Sinister, also the name of their "just-in-time workshop and occasional bookstore" on New York's Lower East Side.
