“What exactly is an oasis in the desert? It is not the desert, but I think that yes, we could actually say that a desert is an oasis.”

Marcel Broodthaers

 

This single-issue journal was created to document the different events organized and produced by Silverbridge. Its aim was to offer their network of artist friends some support as well as the possibility of creating independ collective projects, thanks to the following tools: an art book publishing house, and an art collection as a living history of these projects. It was made and presented at the Jason Rhoades’ and Paul McCarthy’s exhibition “Les Cinq” (The Five) in March 2005 at Nomadenoase in Paris. This presentation was conceived as a kind of tunnel, bridging the installation and the ‘Dionysiaque’ project from the centre Georges Pompidou. It brings together contributions from artists such as Raymond Pettibon, André Butzer, Brigitte Megerle, Nadira Hussein, Andy Hope 1930, Véronique Bourgoin, Clément Lavedant, CédricVirassamy, and Jonathan Meese.
