Old News is a project about information and media
"It is still true that the media now form an integral part of reality effects by creating a media-oriented vision of reality that contributes to creating the reality it claims to describe." Patrick Champagne, The Weight of the World. Social Suffering in Contemporary Society, ed. Pierre Bourdieu et al., Stanford University Press, 1999.
When I first started thinking about Old News, I thought about how news, newspapers and information influence my life. How I select my news sources and how information can be manipulated in the media. I thought of how I would react to my own Old News request. Would I read and look at the daily paper differently? While you read this, you might think about what you would do.
I was curious how 24 artists would react to my request and make their selections. The artists approached the Old News project in a variety of ways. Besides the 24 artists clipping articles, I asked the artists John Miller and Joachim Koester to write short essays for the cover of the premiere issue of Old News.
News and newspapers have been used in many different creative processes long before Lennon discovered the 4,000 holes. Recycling news articles, headlines, images and using information from the print media were at the core of visual art in the 20th century. The expressions are many and varied from intervention, incorporation, appropriation, reproduction of news to self published newspapers and montaged newspaper fragments.
Many artists, writers and musicians have inspired me in my research. I would like to mention Sylvan Hoffman and C. Hartley Grattan's book News of the World: a History of the World in Newspaper-style (1953), On Kawara's I read (1966 to the present), the news paper insert in Dead Kennedy's album Bedtime for Democracy (1986), Tom Lehrer's That Was the Year That Was (1965), Ken Loach's segment from the film September 11 and Guy Schraenen's exhibition Kunstzeitung/Zeitungskunst about the history of artworks in and around newspapers. I looked for, but regrettably never found, Aleksandr Mosolov's Four Newspaper Advertisements (Chetyre Gazetnyh Obyavlenya) a 1926 composition inspired by real advertisements in the Russian newspaper Izvestija.
The Old News project has been and will continue to be presented at different exhibition venues and take on many different shapes and forms.
