“Remember Me, Forget Me”

editorial project

This issue begins with documentary photographs from Memory Flash--one from each movement of the public intervention--and puts them in a larger context to illustrate the complexity inherent in the subject of memory. There are many queer projects concerned with documentation, but also with remembering as fabrication, fiction, and fantasy. Others posit that access to our histories is a right we must demand. The work in this third issue of The JOSH, Remember Me, Forget Me, is a small sample of artists working with history and memory, framing us all as makers and users of "what is past." Contributors include: Jody Fausett, Skylar Fein, David Getsy, Ken Gonzales-Day, Paul Harfleet, John Howard, Doug Ischar, Rudy Lemcke, Roberto Molina-Tondopó, Bo Shell, and THINK AGAIN.

The JOSH (Journal of Sexual Homos) was produced by Martin and Philip at Arts & Sciences PROJECTS in New York. Issues of The JOSH are sold out, but can be found in the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. They were also included in the 2014 LA Book Fair at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and in the volume Queer Zines 2, edited by AA Bronson and Philips Aarons (Printed Matter, 2014).
