Wear

Located on a commercial stretch of road in Beijing's Gulou neighborhood, HomeShop is a live/work space for a group of artists who use the building's storefront as a space to engage the public in community-based projects. This first issue of their journal Wear serves to document their activities at the onset of the Olympic games, "launching a scalar dichotomy between the massive world spectacle of the international event and the minor practices, banal routines and barely discernible poetics of daily life on a small Beijing street." Documentation  and articles present the thoughts, personal writings, interventions, photographs and notes of HomeShop's members and collaborators.
