In this iteration of Thunderclap, the show was set up as part-shop, part-sewing workshop and part-exhibition. Thunderclap employs steganography to publicly redistribute the erased work of Chinese anarcho-feminist He-Yin Zhen (1886–1920) through the medium of clothing accessories.

The exhibition Hutong Whispers is a steganographic catalogue of steganographic publishing projects camouflaged as a laundry line.

‘Thunderclap’ is a steganographic zine, that piggybacks on fashion accessories to publicly distribute the suppressed writings of Chinese anarcho-feminist, He-Yin Zhen (1886-1920).

Attempting to put into action the articulation of Iranian design researcher, Mahmoud Keshavarz, that passport forgery can be viewed as a ‘critical practice of making which momentarily interrupts the matching accord of body, citizenship and freedom of movement’, the project ‘Shanzhai Passports’ not only attempts to place questions of race and empire at the centre of the surveillance discourse, but also how this continues to perpetuate the construction of illegalised bodies from the ’third world’ and illegal counterfeit products made in Asia.

Published in the 1975, Mexican/Dutch artist Ulises Carrións wrote “The New Art of Making Books”. In the chapter “What a book is” he was thinking about books not restricted to its formal properties but as a sequence of spaces and moments, essentially liberating its definition from its physical representation as a paper codex.  For the Off the Press: Electronic Publishing in the Arts conference in Rotterdam, I transposed the text “What a book is” into an e-book using hotglue, a visual tool for creating websites directly in the web-browser.
