“Issue 002 focuses on relating the local to the global, and the environmental impact of fighting for these spaces. Produced for guerilla publishing, this issue is a multi-functional, fold-out publication“, the second issue of the periodical published by non-profit artist-led collective ‘Hoax’, “conceived in late 2019 in Dublin, by Isidora Duran Stewart, Irene Mansoldo & Finn Melvin Caird”, Their focus is on “sharing Irish environmental perspectives”: “Inasmuch as climate anxiety propelled us to initiate an environmentalist project, the top-down market-led trends in publishing led us to reconsider what it can mean to share ideas.

New ideas are not always accessible and often those who could benefit the most from them are excluded. Governmental institutions claim to support public art but continue to handle operations privately, making themselves and their work known to those with the luck of frequenting particular circles, while consistently remaining on the outside of the popular imagination. Local space relations such as these mirror the global environmental issues we are facing today where the private allocation of space forgoes the needs of communities and further widens the cognitive gap between humanity and the natural world. Hoax is a meditation on how humanity as a part of the natural world, can in turn engender its change through accessible, multifunctional publishing.”
