The Very Best of Graf Salwàr del Striës : an illustrative compilation taken from Salwàre oder Die Magdalena von Bozen by Carl Zuckmayer
This survey of experimental art and design magazines published since 2000 explores the various ways in which contemporary artists and designers utilize the magazine format as an experimental space for the presentation of artworks and text. Throughout the 20th century, international avant-garde activities in the visual arts and design were often codified first in the informal context of a magazine or journal. This exhibition, drawn from the holdings of the MoMA library, follows the practice into the 21st century. Assembled together, these contemporary magazines provide a first-hand view into these practices and represent the MoMA library's sustained effort to document and collect this medium.
In Print - The Townhouse Gallery
In an economic climate marked by the demise of the publishing house and bookstore, artists and writers are self-producing low-budget, limited editions of experimental publications and distributing them through their personal networks. IN PRINT shows a selection of these alternative approaches, inviting also three Cairo-based, conceptually diverse DIY initiatives (Zine El Arab, TokTok & Cairobserver) to set up printing bureaus in the gallery. It continues for three weeks with the practitioners behind each of these uncensored, Arabic-language projects. Meeting with their collaborators and discussing their initiatives with the general public. Through these interactions and discussions, “IN PRINT” hopes to create a platform for the further development of an independent, artist-driven publishing scene in Cairo.
Mag / is / in - Studio MG
This exhibition, curated by Francesca Oddenino and Vanessa Poli, with the support of the Polytechnic University of Torino, is framed in their research and design project about the independent and auto-produced magazines and their history and background. It is the intention to underline their importance as an instrument for communication and free expression, and their relevance to enhancing culture, smart thinking and exchange. The aim of the project is to organize an international exhibition in Turin, to present the most interesting magazines and to start a reflection on their history and on the environment in which they evolved, on their objectives and on the peculiar universe of each magazine. The exhibition is conceived for the project “Le città vivibili” and is a part of “Torino Smart City”.
