Stu Mead & Frank Gaard: The Immortal Man Bag Journal of Art
DIVUS

Man Bag grew out of the Artpolicecomics magazine project that had been publishing out of the community of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, which fell victim in the late 1980s to the culture-wars climate of censorship.

Stu Mead & Frank Gaard: The Immortal Man Bag Journal of ArtStu Mead & Frank Gaard: The Immortal Man Bag Journal of Art

Published by Divus.

In response, two of the protagonists of Artpolicecomics, Stu Mead (born 1955) and Frank Gaard (born 1944), got together on a new zine, this time deliberately thumbing their noses at political correctness and decency, fixating on “sick sex and decadence” in an underground “men’s magazine focused on deviated sexuality,” as Gaard puts it. Stu Mead & Frank Gaard: The Immortal Man Bag Journal of Art collects all printed editions of the zine, along with Man Bag No. 6, released for the first time. In his introduction, Gaard offers an unvarnished, conversational, infectious history of Man Bag, supplemented with extracts from Stu Mead’s diary.

Published by Divus.
Edited with text by Ivan Mecl, Lenka Klodova.

Stu Mead's (born 1955) paintings approach the art world at a tangent; though the artist received a formal art education, his cartoon-inspired style and predilection for painting prepubescent, female objects of desire has placed him somewhere outside the mainstream, but with a firm cult following.
This monograph compiles many of Mead's paintings--fantastical, surreal and erotic--in a handsome hardcover. Inspired by the paintings and drawings of Hans Bellmer and Balthus, Mead works at the intersection of high and low art, unabashedly depicting taboo topics and scenarios. A student of Andrea Dworkin's in the 1980s, Mead comes out of the radical feminist movement, and his graphic painting style investigates identity, gender and social emancipation. Straddling the line between fairytale illustration and comic-book humor, Berlin-based Mead's controversial work is published as a retrospective for the first time.
