From 1999 to 2001, the New York-based collaborative project Bernadette Corporation produced Made In USA, a magazine that combined fashion, art, music, and critique as an experimental publication. For three issues, Made In USA mapped out the cultural terrain for a generation of artists living in New York at a time when reactionary politics and the phenomenon of globalization reached a tipping point. Badlands is pleased to reissue these seminal and historical works as hi-resolution e-books for a new generation of artists and readers. They are all available on Apple iBooks (for the iPad, iTouch, and iPhone), Amazon Kindle, and other e-readers.
The reissue of Made In USA coincides with the first retrospective of Bernadette Corporation, at Artists Space, New York. Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years recasts the works authored by the group since their inception in the early '90s. The exhibition runs from September 9 - December 16, 2012, and will travel to the ICA in London in Spring 2013.
