In this Special Global Downtown issue of the art and culture magazine FILE Megazine, General Idea (a collective formed by the Canadian artists AA Bronson, Felix Partz, and Jorge Zontal) invited John Greyson as guest editor. This issue includes contributions by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Paul Oberst, Tom Dean, Paul Campbell, Robert Cummings, and others, with illustrations, advertisements, and writings in architecture, art, fashion, interior design, music, travel, and more. Generous in size, color, and clarity, this offset-printed, staple-bound publication reads as satirical, whimsical, and cosmopolitan — a happy fulfilment of its self-association with the “Global Downtown.” — From Printed Matter
