9780854882434: The Magazine (Documents of Contemporary Art)

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the current condition and potential of the artist's magazine, surveying the art worlds it has by turns created and superseded.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. Writers include Saul Anton, Stuart Brand, Jack Burnham, Johanna Burton, Thomas Crow, Edit DeAk, Kenneth Goldsmith, Jurgen Habermas, Martina Koppel-Yang, Antje Krause-Wahl, Lucy Lippard, Caolan Madden, Valentina Parisi, Howardena Pindell, Georg Schollhammer, Nancy Spector, Sally Stein, Reiko Tomii, Jud Yalkut and Vivian Ziherl.

About the Author:

Gwen Allen is Associate Professor of History of Art at San Francisco University. She is the author of Artists' Magazines: An Alternative Space for Art (2011).

Review:

This is a remarkable collection, both capacious and rigorously focused. Through a gratifyingly readable set of texts, Gwen Allen deftly argues for a consideration of the magazine as a key medium for artistic production in contemporary art.

(Suzanne Hudson, Associate Professor of Art History and Fine Arts, University of Southern California)

The art world as we know it would not be the same without magazines. This valuable volume, smartly edited by Gwen Allen, brings together a compendium of material from alternative zines as well as more mainstream publications to show how artists and media producers have used magazine pages in striking ways to publicize and politicize images and ideas.

(Julia Bryan-Wilson, Associate Professor of Art History, University of California, Berkeley)
