"AVENUE B—September 11, 2002. Enjoying my hot-off-the-press Daily on Avenue B with a cup of burned deli coffee. New York’s Hometown Newspaper was printed in an edition of 1,000 on the first anniversary of 9-11, to reclaim my birthday on the same day. The newspaper contains articles, poems, drawings, ads and all sorts of stupid beautiful shit solicited from over 100 physical artist friends and univocally accepted under the open editorial policy as birthday gifts. The back I BOMB NY logo is by the Bernadette Corporation. Looking back though, it is interesting how certain mainstream politicians have taken all our avant-garde strategies, DADA, Punk, Fiction, Surrealism, Performance, Wigs, even FAKE NEWS (homage: Yves Klein), squeezed the dear soul out of them and weaponized them for their delinquent purposes. If that is really the case of our times, then what is the role of an artist today? Discuss." — Aleksandra Mir
