Traducing Ruddle is the fifth in a series of "fake" newspapers by Dutch artist Mark Manders. Using a nonsensical combination of English words, Traducing Ruddle creates a pretense of legibility that dissolves upon closer inspection. The newspaper is supplemented by Two Connected Houses, a 48 page insert developed in conjunction with the exhibition Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum.
Manders' newspaper will be distributed for free through newspaper boxes in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside during the months of February and March, 2010. Outside of Vancouver, Traducing Ruddle is available for purchase directly from Fillip as well as from Roma Publications, Amsterdam, Motto Distribution, Berlin, and Textfield, Los Angeles. Subscribers to Fillip magazine will receive Manders’ publication free of charge.
Sheets from Manders’ Traducing Ruddle form the central element of the artist’s Window with Fake Newspapers project, a site-specific public work on view through March 28th.
Co-published with Roma Publications, Amsterdam. Design: Hans Gremmen.
