Kunstverein NY x White Zinfandel

Documents is guest edited by a different individual or group for set duration, in the style of an online residency. Some materials have been previously published in print, other works are conceived specifically for the website.

From the beginning of May to the end of June, the Documents residency is in the hands of Ashley Rawlings, a contributing editor for White Zinfandel magazine. Published twice a year, White Zinfandel is dedicated to the visual manifestation of food and culture produced within the lives of creative individuals.

In anticipation of the third issue of White Zinfandel being titled “Food Fights,” Rawlings is inviting artists and writers to respond to chapter headings in The Anarchist Cookbook, written by William Powell in 1971 in protest against the Vietnam War. Taken out of context, many of the chapter headings become abstract and incomprehensible—potent starting points for flights of free association that appropriate, embellish, undermine or reinforce the subversiveness of the original text. You can read Rawlings’ editor’s letter here.
