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…
