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…

Fair — Sunday Book Fair

Art insti­tu­tions and small pub­lish­ing houses in the Neth­er­lands offer a wide vari­ety of pub­lic­a­tions that focus on con­tem­por­ary art and art the­ory. Often with a par­tic­u­lar emphas­is in sub­ject mat­ter, these pub­lish­ers con­trib­ute in a sig­ni­fic­ant and mean­ing­ful way to the inter­na­tion­al dis­course of con­tem­por­ary art. With the Sunday Book Fair – organ­ized for the first time at the museum – the Stedelijk aims to be a plat­form for the present­a­tion of recently pub­lished artists books, read­ers, cata­logues, encyclopedia’s, etc. invit­ing pub­lish­ing houses of a mod­est scale to pitch their new books in the Aud­it­or­i­um of the Stedelijk, fol­lowed by a book fair in the museum café.

Fair — It’s a Book, It’s a Stage, It’s a Public Place

Dur­ing last year’s Leipzig Book Fair, Spect­or Books organ­ized a first meet­ing of inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ers at the Cent­raltheat­er. The event com­bined trade fair and work­shop: vis­it­ors could receive inform­a­tion about the pro­grams of the 16 invited pub­lish­ing pro­jects or listen to talks giv­en on the grand theatre stairs. “It’s a Book, It’s a Stage,It’s a Pub­lic Place” was greeted with lively res­on­ance by guests and pub­lish­ers alike…
