Exhibition - Artists as Independent Publishers
Artists as Independent Publishers
Exhibition / 14. to 25. April 2021
The exhibition shows artists' books, which were developed in the context of the project "Artists as Independent Publishers" at five international universities.
The project was initiated by the University of the Arts in Bremen and supervised as well as organized there by Stephan Baumkötter, Marion Bösen, Katrin von Maltzahn and Tania Prill.
The exhibition of the interdisciplinary artists' book project is realized in cooperation with the Center for Artists' Publications at the Weserburg, Museum of Modern Art for the second time.
Participating art schools are Geidai in Tokyo, the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Royal College London, St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp and Burg Giebichenstein in Halle.
In the first stage of the project (which began in the fall of 2019), artists' books were thematically reflected upon and produced in parallel at all art colleges as part of various courses and workshops.
The project, which had to be postponed by one year due to Corona, now culminates in an exhibition series in spring 2021 through the twin cities, exhibiting the resulting books from all six art colleges.
The kick-off will take place at the Center for Artists' Publications at the Weserburg in Bremen, where the first "Artists as Independent Publishers" exhibition will be on view from April 14-25.
Due to actual and ongoing situation - that goes along with the (re)closing of Weserburg - the exhibition will be accompanied, from the 14.04. on, on our website and on the following channels:
