"'The Happy Hypocrite' is a biannual journal for and about experimental art writing. Informed by a lineage of modern experimental and avant-garde magazines, such as: 'Bananas, Documents,' 'The Fox,' 'Merlin' and 'Tracks,' this journal aspires to unpack the methodology of such key journals, whilst providing a brand new approach to art writing. It will provide a greatly needed testing ground for new writing and research-based projects, somewhere for artists, writers and theorists to express experimental ideas that might not otherwise be realised or published. In this, the first issue, an interview, a translation, a short story, notes on time, some possible captions, Bananas and an index. Edited by Maria Fusco. Artist’s pages and artist’s writings from: Cosey Fanni Tutti, Douglas Coupland, Stewart Home, Andrea Mason, Clunie Reid, Gerard Byrne, Paolo Arao, Lisa Robertson, Farhad Ahrarnia, Nick Thurston, Giles Eldridge, and Alexandre Singh." publisher's statement.
