Barbara Says – Design e Comunicação Lda. Lisboa. Portugal
2001 was, at one time, the highest peak and the beginning of the downfall for flirt. Some of the issues were thematic, some were not. Maturity set in, in a project that was condemn to be adolescent forever.
One of the issues was dedicated to abandoned houses cum squats, with a how-to-guide by bone fide squatters, a text exploring the artistic takeover of the Tercenas do Marquês building, and yet another article that remains up-to-date (8 years after being written), on the empty houses and apartments in Lisbon.
Also: Angela Davis; interview with Kalle Lasn (editor for Adbusters), the republishing of the “First Things Firts” manifesto, Critical Art Ensemble, Manuel de Landa, Geert Lovink and Negative Land.
