Mike Kelley interviewed by John Miller.

Sara MacKillop, Ex-library book, Pork Salad Press, 2012

An Ex-library book is the least desirable book in book collecting terms. The term is used for books that once belonged to a library. Ex-library books are generally unattractive, as they have usually been stamped, taped, glued or had a card pocket glued to them. The books have often been damaged by the patrons of the library themselves.

Julie Ault, Alternative Art New York, 1965–1985, University Of Minnesota Press, The Drawing Center, 2003

By the mid-1960s, New York's art establishment-its major museums and galleries-had ceased to reflect the city's diversity and had largely ignored the decade's social, political, and cultural ferment. In response, marginalized artists created an oppositional network of organizations, exhibit spaces, and cooperative galleries that both paralleled and challenged the status quo. This alternative art movement flourished for more than two decades, repositioning New York at the center of international contemporary art. Alternative Art New York brings together a diverse group of artists and critics to explore the origins and evolution of this diffuse and vibrant cultural scene from a variety of perspectives: political, philosophical, organizational, economic, and aesthetic.
Locating the movement within both the art world and its larger social and political context, these authors decipher the shifting configurations of cultural power in this period and the complex relationship between the mainstream and the marginal. With a unique, annotated chronology of the alternative art scene from 1965 to 1985, and illustrated with 150 images of key works, installations, and exhibits; reproductions of posters, communiqués, and other ephemera; and photographs of protests and meetings, this volume is an important work of contemporary art history and a valuable sourcebook that suggests the basis for the return of an artist-driven cultural economy.

May #10, May Revue, 2013

'Second in a series focused on the 90s in France, our initial ambitions for this issue of May was to discuss the interests of art theory and art history that allegedly took place in the early 90s to generate a view on the theoretical context for artistic production then. It was not to engage in a comprehensive review, but approach the subject by working in the inverse to emphasize the background and proceed with minimal means.'

Parker Tyler, Underground Film: A Critical History, Grove Press, 1969

Parker Tyler was the first critic to write seriously about the early Underground film makers, especially about Stan Brakhage, Sidney Peterson, Gregory Markopoulos, Willard Maas and Maya Deren. Here he assesses their work along with that of Kenneth Anger, Ed Emshwiller, Ron Rice, Peter Kubelka, James Whitney, Stan VanDerBeek, Andy Warhol, Bruce Conner, Paul Sharits, Charles Boultenhouse, and other filmmakers. Discussing the specific films, he shows the variety of current aims and techniques, and traces their origins in Dada and Surrealism and in the classic of Buñuel, Cocteau, René Clair, Eisenstein, and Wiene. He assumes that critical values provide the true key for judging film achievement, and as a result, in this book Underground Film criticism attains a new dimension.

Anicka Yi, Carissa Rodriguez, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne, The Politics of Friendship, Edition Patrick Frey, STUDIOLO, 2013

On July 9, 2013, the web journal The New Inquiry released "Further Materials toward a Theory of the Man-Child" by Mal Ahern and Moira Weigel, and the essay went viral ( Serving up more than one version of what or who possibly lurks behind every Young-Girl ( & the original text in French:, the essay articulated a term of engagement rampant not only in academia where the authors circulate, but endemic as well in the worlds of contemporary art and its structures of success– a disgracefully sexist field. A solo exhibition by Anicka Yi at STUDIOLO slated for September 2013 evolved into a collaborative project among Anicka Yi, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne and Carissa Rodriguez. Yi and Lord’s reading of Derrida’s The Politics of Friendship became the grounds for a related conversation about responsibility, call and response. The group asked others to respond to Ahern and Weigel’s essay in the form of a poster, image, or text to be compiled into a publication.
