loud paper Returns With a Bang

LOUDPA~1.JPG

After a decade existing as potentially marked-for-death printed matter, Mimi Zeiger‘s zine loud paper has finally succumbed to its more natural blog form. But bringing the potent blend of architecture, pop culture, design, art, and music to the world wide web wasn’t an easy call, sayz Miz Z:

Since the zine is a proto-blog of sorts, it seems inevitable that loud paper would end up in this format. I tried to resist, I had my excuses, but the call of the keyboard was too great.

In this new incarnation loud paper is part per-zine, travelogue, marketing machine, and wunderkammer, but it will also remain true to the original mission to provide a forum for multiple voices. This summer I resurrected the nearly-forgotten Boring Issue from obscurity, posting several essays and updates from a few contributors. More installments to come. Also, get ready for a new call for submissions later this fall.

An archive has interviews with people like Doug Aitken, Jorge Pardo and Shepard Fairey, but you’d do well to stick closely to the new stuff: Zeiger definitely knows how to make herself heard.

Doug Aitken’s All Over MoMA

Coming soon, to a museum near you. Well, on a museum near you. “sleepwalkers” is not your standard film, but that’s because artist Doug Aitken is not your standard filmmaker. The installation at MoMA features Aitken’s favorite format–Broken Screen–with Tilda Swanson, Donald Sutherland and others in shorts (not shorts, shorts) projected against the MoMA building.

The NY Times’ got a sweet little story and, like any film, there’s even a trailer. Opens January 16.
