Issue 13
ALD examines the work of internationally renowned performance artist Marina Abramovic, whose flesh- and soul-rending self-experiments incorporate masochism and extreme self-control into a form of transcendence that would have earned her Sainthood in recent centuries.

Issue 17
Topics include, but are not limited to: the flattening of space by travel, the airport as a generic substitute for home, and being lost.


Issue 18
These make going to galleries a superfluous trifle. Counting the number of syllables in a word like 'collaborations' fills the soul with a tremulous sense of aesthetic appreciation that few works in the history of art dare to rival.


Issue 20
An in-depth interview with the artist supplies insight into his strategies for storytelling in pictures, the unmasking of children, and working in the dark.



Issue 7
"While you're at it, why don't you tell me one of your biggest fears." This is Take #8; originally a 25 minute session.
