Publishing as an Artistic Toolbox: 1989–2017 Programmheft

Kunsthalle Wien (Ed.)

What is the role of art publishing today?

How have artists adapted modes of publishing as a tool for their practice? How has the notion of artists' publishing activity changed, given the ever-increasing amount of fairs and an ever-evolving number of book-related collections in contemporary art museums? Publishing has developed a favorite site and medium for aesthetic and artistic experimentation. It has also become an alternative space for promoting unrestricted individual or collective discourse. The multi-part exhibition project Publishing as an Artistic Toolbox: 1989–2017 explores the potentials of publishing – in the form of books, magazines, journals, artistic interventions, websites – as a particular medium and context both to circulate information, knowledge – and to produce art.
