In Old News 2004 (Issue #1) and Old News 2005 (Issue #2), the guidelines for artists were straightforward: the remit was simply to select and cut out articles that were regarded as interesting and send them to me with their comments. However, the timeframe and number of articles solicited varied from year to year.
In 2005, 8 artists were asked to cut out 12 articles over a 12-month period - their comments were then printed next to the actual article in the newspaper. In addition, 13 artists primarily from Los Angeles were asked to cut 4 to 12 articles during 3 months (without writing comments on their selection). Thomas Hirschhorn made the Emergency Library 'book' insert for this edition of Old News.
