Project X, Issue #12, Night Life Publication by Michael Alig, Julie Jewels & Rudolf, Late 80s/Early 90s


Project X, issue #12, December/January, 1989/90. Offset print on paper, 72 pages. 8.25 x 10.75 inches.

This magazine published by Rudolf and co-edited by Julie Jewels and Michael Alig, was devoted exclusively to nightlife, and captured the decadence that marked the final years of what, in retrospect, was surely a golden age of nightclubs.  The magazine came to an end when co-editor Michael Alig, the leader of a group of party-goers called the “Club Kids,” pleaded guilty to the killing of a member of his group in 1996.
