Issue 6

The 6th issue begins with a history article about the New Zealand Liberals of the 1890s, and the nation’s women’s suffrage movement, led by Kate Sheppard, which led to the nation becoming the first to give women the vote. There is an interview with Christoph Keller, founder of the German publishing house Revolver, about his archive of independent publications, Kiosk – Modes of Multiplication, which was exhibited at more than 27 locations around the world, including ICA (London), the Witte de With (Rotterdam), Artists' Space (NY), the Emily Carr Institute (Vancouver), MUDAM (Luxembourg). There are articles about noise artist Birchville Cat Motel and the Melbourne-based artist Ronnie van Hout; plus a report on the exhibition Islanded at Adam Art Gallery in Wellington, which presented artists from New Zealand, Taiwan and Singapore. There is also a commissioned comic by New Zealand artist Tim Bollinger titled “Information Centre”, satirizing Wellington’s inner-city development and tourism drive.
