This week my favourite book publisher, MACK books sent me their title SCUMB Manifesto by Justine Kurland, to review and I love it! Inspired by Valerie Solanas’ iconoclastic feminist tract SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men), SCUMB Manifesto introduces us to photographer Justine Kurland’s own uncompromising initiative: the Society for Cutting Up Men’s Books. And she does just that, books by 150 white straight men are cut up and reconfigured into her own intricate interpretation. Books by Stephen Shore (American Surfaces), William Eggleston (Los Alamos), Larry Clark’s (Tusla), Martin Parr’s (Think of England), Alec Soth’s (Sleeping by the Mississippi), Brassaï’s (Paris by Night) and last but not all, Robert Frank’s (The American’s), all make the cut. I’ll be publishing my complete review shortly but for now, bask in another week with some of the the best of our community of mobile artists in this weeks showcase.
