Jesse Hlebo

Jesse Hlebo is a New York–based artist. His work explores the ways in which societal power structures, methods of associated control, and autonomous actions are disseminated via mass media. The work is resistant to “facts” and “objective truths” and so often violates its own meaning. He is the cofounder of _ Quarterly, a publication based on obsolescence, and is the founder of Swill Children, a small press and record label focusing on notions of value as they pertain to small run, physical objects. He is the founding editor of Paperweight, a collectively operated site devoted to facilitating a critical dialogue on, and providing resources for, independent publishing. He holds a position on P-MAG (the Printed Matter Advisory Group).
