– F.R. DAVID is a journal, published by de Appel, Amsterdam, which focuses on writing as the core material of a number of visual artists but equally as a mode that exists parallel to or in service of the visual.

Since its conception in 2000 DDD has immatured into a jocuserious fanzine-journal-orphanage based on true stories deeply concerned with art-design-music-language-literature-architecture and uptight optipessimistic stoppy/revelatory ghostwriting by friendly spirits mapping b-sides and out-takes pushing for a resolution in bleak midwinter through late summer with local and general aesthetics wound on an ever tightening coil.

– Dot Dot Dot 15, produced on location at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Geneve, between 24 October and 7 November 2007 by Mai Abu ElDahab, Stuart Bailey, Walead Beshty, Sarah Crowner, Joyce Guley, Will Holder, Anthony Huberman, Polona Kuzman, David Reinfurt, Joke Robaard, Jan Verwoert and Jan Dirk de Wilde on Ricoh TC2, Ricoh JP8500 and Riso V8000 stencil printing machines in an edition of 3000.
