Review — Medium #1 & #2

For my second review on artzines I picked Medium, a zine I had first seen at  MZIN bookshop in Leipzig in 2011. Recently, I met one of the editors of Medium in Zurich by chance and received a copy of the brand-new second issue. For both issues, the three editors of Medium — graphic designer Manuel Krebs, author and curator Tirdad Zolghadr and photographer Shirana Shahbazi — have created a treasure chest of twists and turns that is abundant of delightful discoveries and ironic punch lines…

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…
