»For the sixth year of its magazine res­id­ency, Kadist wel­comes edit­ors and artists Robert Hamelijnck and Nien­ke Terpsma of Fuck­ing Good Art (FGA), Rot­ter­dam! To launch their latest issue, New Exist­en­tial­ism, and in cel­eb­ra­tion of the past twelve years of their pub­lish­ing activ­ity, FGA has assembled a small exhib­i­tion show­cas­ing thirty-five past issues that will be on view at Kadist through Feb­ru­ary 19. Next Wed­nes­day, fol­low­ing a cock­tail and game hour, they will present briefly about their his­tory and research-in-pro­gress exper­i­ment­ing with live nar­ra­tion over video clips. The con­ver­sa­tion will focus in par­tic­u­lar on ›FGA #35 New Exist­en­tial­ism‹, ›#31 It’s Play­time‹, and ›#29 Itali­an con­ver­sa­tions: Art in the age of Ber­lusconi‹, unex­pec­tedly and unfor­tu­nately newly rel­ev­ant in the wake of cur­rent polit­ic­al events in the US.
FGA is a trav­el­ing magazine or edit­or­i­al pro­ject for research in-and-through art, since 2003. Its interests include oral his­tory, eth­no­graphy, doc­u­ment­ary film, invest­ig­at­ive art and journ­al­ism, counter and sub cul­tures, self-organ­iz­a­tion and DIT (do-it-togeth­er) strategies, art and anarch­ism, and mod­els out­side the art mar­ket and the main­stream. They fol­low a par­ti­cip­at­ory strategy and are by nature highly sens­it­ive to the con­text they are in. Please email if you are inter­ested in mak­ing an appoint­ment to meet FGA while they are in res­id­ence.«
