The Magazine (Paperback)
The multiple platforms of the digital era have not diminished the role of the magazine for artists as an alternative medium and experimental space. Intrinsically collaborative, including readers' active engagement, the magazine is an inherently 'open' form which generates constantly evolving relationships. It was integral to the emergence of art criticism in the Enlightenment period and the development of artistic dialogues around notions of culture, politics and the public from the modern era avant-gardes to the present. This anthology contextualises the current condition and potential of the artist's magazine, surveying the art worlds it has by turns created and superseded. In addition to surveying case studies of transformational magazines from the early 1960s onwards, this collection includes a wide-ranging archive of key editorial statements, from eighteenth-century Weimar to twenty-first century Bangkok, Cape Town and Delhi.Artists surveyed include Can Altay, Ei Arakawa, Julieta Aranda, Tania Bruguera, Maurizio Cattelan, Eduardo Costa, Dexter Sinister, Rimma Gerlovina, Valeriy Gerlovin, Robert Heinecken, John Holmstrom, John Knight, Silvia Kolbowski, Lee Lozano, Josephine Meckseper, Clemente Padin, Raymond Pettibon, Adrian Piper, Seth Price, Raqs Media Collective, Riot Grrrl, Martha Rosler, Sanaa Seif, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Scott Treleaven, Triple Canopy and Anton Vidokle.
