"The Happy Hypocrite" is a journal led by artists’ writings, providing a testing ground for new writing and research-based projects, somewhere for artists, writers and theorists to express experimental ideas that might not otherwise be realised or published. Founded by Maria Fusco in 2008, The Happy Hypocrite has been guest edited annually since 2013 by Lynne Tillman, Mason Leaver-Yap, Sophia Al-Maria, Hannah Sawtell, Virginija Januškevičiūtė, and Erica Scourti.

The event is part of the public programme accompanying the exhibition "Head With Many Thoughts" and is organised in partnership with the Lithuanian Embassy in the United Kingdom.
