The first 10 years of Le Dictateur: a big “birthday”.
Le Dictateur N.5 FAQ is a small art publication that, after its birth with Le Dictateur, became a separated annual volume.
It is conceived as a portable exhibition on paper, an hybrid object. The first issue includes works by: Thomas Bayrle, Neil Beloufa, Caroll Dunham, Andra Ursuta, Jon Rafman, Kathy Grannan, Llyn Foulkes, Camille Henrot, Steven Shaerer, Korakrit Arunanondchai e Judith Bernstein. FAQ aims to create a visual ideal community, an immaginary “gang”.
Probably condemned to fail because its lack of rules, hierarchy and order - and, after all, lack also of a real concept - Le Dictateur N. 5 FAQ declares as much as possibile a personal and subjective connotation and the obsessive manierism of its authors.
