About White Fungus:
White Fungus is an art magazine based in Taichung City, Taiwan.
Founded by brothers Ron and Mark Hanson in Wellington, in 2004, as a quasi political manifesto, copies of the first issue were produced on a photocopier, wrapped in Christmas paper and hurled anonymously through the entrances of businesses throughout the city.
Now a magazine featuring interviews, writing on art, new music, history and politics, White Fungus takes a dialogical approach to the work it covers. The name of the publication comes from a can of “white fungus” the Hansons found in their local supermarket in the industrial zone of Taichung City. Each cover of White Fungus is derived from a scan of the can.
White Fungus has held interdisciplinary art events at galleries including P.P.O.W (New York), Taipei Contemporary Art Center, ARTSPACE (Auckland) and Adam Art Gallery (Wellington). The publication is held in library collections including The Museum of Modern Art (New York), The New York Public Library (Art & Architecture Collection), Taipei Fine Art Museum, The Southbank Centre (London), Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, National Library of Australia and Te Papa (National Museum of New Zealand).
White Fungus was part of the exhibition Millennium Magazines at Museum of Modern Art (February 20-May 18, 2012). The exhibition was a survey of magazines made by contemporary artists since 2000.
白木耳雜誌 是一本發源於台中的當代前衛藝術雜誌， 內容詳細介紹了關於來自世界各地的前衛音樂 、歷史、 政治、 原創作品、 詩、 短篇小說 與漫畫。白木耳雜誌本身既是一個社群媒體藝術的實驗過程。當這些實驗性的孢子逐漸成熟而散落，雜誌創刊者十分期待風會將這些孢子傳遞至何方，但關於未來， 一切則充滿了新的生機與各種可能性。
