Complete run of Acconci and Mayer’s little magazine, one which “followed in the Greenwich Village spirit of self-publishing embodied by Ted Berrigan’s C Magazine, John Ashbery’s Art & Literature, and Ed Sanders’s Fuck You. The work in 0 to 9, however, soon moved off into a very different direction from the post-Beat and New York School poetics as practiced by the editors’ contemporaries in the downtown scene. Instead, 0 to 9 created a niche that can now be located at the beginnings of the Language and performance poetry movements” (Aarons & Roth. In Numbers: Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955, p.33). The magazine contained art, drama, Language, concrete, and experimental poetry, and was distributed by hand to local New York bookstores like the Gotham Book Mart, Eighth Street, and Sheridan Square. Acconci and Mayer employed a curious aesthetic, cobbling together covers using materials as diverse as crumpled-up paper, dustjackets from their own collection, blank sheets, and mimeo stencil paper. It included works by Acconci and Mayer, Gertrude Stein, Anne Waldman, Aram Saroyan, Tom Clark, Ron Padgett, Raymond Queneau, Rosemary Mayer, John Giorno, Clark Coolidge, Robert Greene, Bruce Marcus, Ted Berrigan, Jacksin Mac Low, Dick Higgins, Sol LeWitt, Harry Mathews, Hannah Weiner, Bern Porter, Jerome Rothenberg, Kenneth Koch, Yvonne Rainer, Jasper Johns, Robert Heizer, Michael Smithson, and others.
