Paperweight

Paper­weight is a primar­ily online-based organ­iz­a­tion ded­ic­ated to fur­ther­ing a dia­logue on inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing.

The inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing com­munity requires a space that can facil­it­ate a cul­tur­al dia­logue, both in his­tor­ic­al and con­tem­por­ary con­texts, as well as provide resources that oth­ers have found help­ful in their own pro­duc­tion. Paper­weight aims to har­bor these dia­logues while offer­ing an altern­at­ive meth­od for the dis­sem­in­a­tion of inform­a­tion sur­round­ing inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing cul­ture. In addi­tion to its space online, Paper­weight peri­od­ic­ally pub­lishes an expan­ded phys­ic­al art­icle from the web­site and organ­izes pub­lic dis­cus­sions.”

Interview — Regine Ehleiter ‘Thanks For Sharing’

‘Thanks For Sharing’ Exhibition View

Thanks For Shar­ing’ — Exhib­i­tion View

What is an art zine? How does it dif­fer from an edit­or­i­al art magazine or a blog? And why do more and more artists inter­na­tion­ally seem to be inter­ested in this par­tic­u­lar pub­lish­ing format?”

In 2010 Regine Ehleit­er cur­ated the won­der­full ‘Thanks For Shar­ing’ (TFS) exhib­tion and sym­posi­um at the D21 Kun­straum. There­fore she invited zin­sters, artists, col­lect­ors, dis­trib­ut­ors and cur­at­ors to sub­mit their pub­lic­a­tions and to dis­cuss the “rising interest in zines, their pop­ular­ity among con­tem­por­ary artists, the reviv­al of DIY-cul­ture with its appeal­ingly easy imple­ment­a­tion of ideas and poten­tial for styl­ist­ic exper­i­ment­a­tion”. More than 300 zines from all over the world were shown in a spe­cially designed exhib­i­tion archi­tec­ture, developed by stu­dents of the Academy of Visu­al Arts Leipzig (Class for Sys­tem Design).
In Janu­ary 2011 the cata­logue pub­lished in occa­sion of the exhib­i­tion was launched at the mzin store in Leipzig and i thought it’s high time to inter­view Regine Ehleit­er…
