Issue #04 – Spring 2010

Jonathan Horowitz. This is This

The fourth issue of Peep-Hole Sheet closes the first series of this editorial project. In one year we have published texts of various genres: from Liam Gillick’s fiction to the programmatic text by Dora García, passing through to the theoretical approach by John Miller. Thus, it doesn’t seem accidental that, almost like in a yearly balance sheet, Jonathan Horowitz, although invited to freely contribute (as is always the case for this publication) decided to write a self-referential text. Yet another kind of artist writing, the text speaks about himself, about Peep-Hole, and about his contribution. Horowitz does this in a tautological manner, questioning wider issues such as the artist’s position, and the difficulty of his role in this publication. The upcoming issue of Peep-Hole Sheet, which will come out next June, will give birth to a new cycle. For the moment, “This is This”.

Jonathan Horowitz (1966) lives and works in New York.

Peep-Hole Sheet is a quarterly of writings by artists. Each issue is dedicated solely to one artist, who is invited to contribute with an unpublished text whose content is completely free in terms both of subject and format. The texts are published in their original language, with accompanying translation in English. Peep-Hole Sheet is meant for those who believe artists are catalysts for ideas all around us, and who want to read their words without any filter. Over time it aspires to build up an anthology of writings that might open new perspectives for interpreting and understanding our times. Peep-Hole Sheet is published and distributed by Mousse Publishing.
