Peter FriedlPublishing as an Artistic Toolbox: 1989–2017
Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Austria
What is the role of art publishing today? How have artists adapted modes of publishing as a tool for their specific practice? How has the notion of the artist’s publishing activity changed, given the ever-increasing amount of fairs and an evolving number of book-related collections in contemporary art museums?
Publishing has become, especially since the 60’s, a favourite site and medium for aesthetic and artistic experimentation. It has also become an alternative space for promoting unrestricted individual or collective discourse.
The project Publishing as an Artistic Toolbox : 1989–2017 aims at exploring the potentials of publishing – in the form of books, magazines, journals, artistic interventions, websites – as a particular medium and context both to circulate information and knowledge – and to produce art.
