Publications

The SPVR has always been editorially active, fundamentally through exhibition catalogues, among which are both monographs and publications about Visceral Realist artists, collectives, collections, and works. These include essays of diverse natures: compilations of conferences, artists’ writings, papers presented at SPVR seminars, and so on. These catalogues are not only conceptualized as mere documentation of exhibitions, but aspire to contribute to the study of Visceral Realists through contributions of theory. Through these publications, the SPVR offers the local public access to documents and materials that would not otherwise be available to them, and allows Visceral Realist artists and collectives to publish their work on an international level.

(Eulogy for the Angry); SPVR Press in collaboration with Movement Detritus Press

  1. Note to Readers: In Fall 1999, the JOIV Editorial Board bitterly splintered into two factions due to ideological and creative differences, each faction setting out to publish their own “authentic” version of the Visceral Realist writings. Both issues contain important work, and we recommend that you order both documents and compare and contrast the weight of each faction’s relative positions on conflict and conflict resolution.
