Happy Hypocrite Issue 7: Heat Island

Book Works
6.5 × 9 in
96 pages
Journal, Essays

Touch is the theme of the seventh issue of Book Works’ annual journal for and about experimental art writing, Happy Hypocrite – Heat Island, guest-edited by film curator Isla Leaver-Yap. The act of touching is the body’s only unmediated form of acquiring embodied knowledge and experiencing the texture of the present tense. This issue seeks to understand how hands, as both digital and analogous devices, physically traverse and negotiate knowledge, and bring to our attention the sensation of approaching knowledge. For this issue, Isla Leaver-Yap selected writings by Elaine Cameron-Weir, Allison Gibbs, Will Holder, Duncan Marquiss, Giuseppe Mistretta, Park McArthur, Paul Nash, Francis Sanzaro, Mary Simpson and Dena Yago. Leaver-Yap, independent curator and scholar who organized the influential Naught to Sixty contemporary exhibition series at London’s ICA, recently joined the Walker Art Center as their 2014 Bentson Visiting Film Scholar.
