Artists’ publications: analogue – digital!

Online exhibition, The Centre for Artistsʼ Publications, Weserburg Museum of Modern Art

Jul. 31st – Oct. 25th 2020

What are di­gi­tal ar­tists‘ pu­bli­ca­ti­ons? How are they pu­blis­hed and how do they ap­pe­ar as art­works? What emer­ges ar­tis­ti­cal­ly ex­pli­cit­ly as a di­gi­tal work? The ex­hi­bi­ti­on Artists‘ Publications: analog – digital! is de­di­ca­ted to the­se ques­ti­ons, which have been ar­tis­ti­cal­ly re­le­vant sin­ce the 1960s, but which have been fur­ther up­dated in times of the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic.

Artists‘ Publications: analog – digital! pro­vi­des an over­view of the di­ver­si­ty of di­gi­tal re­fe­ren­ces, me­dia and forms of ar­tist­s' pu­bli­ca­ti­ons from 1965 to the pre­sent. On the one hand, pu­re­ly di­gi­tal works are shown. On the other hand, the ex­hi­bi­ti­on fo­cu­ses on works that ap­pe­ar both as real ob­jects and in elec­tro­nic form. The­se forms and me­dia have very dif­fe­rent cha­rac­te­ris­tics that iden­ti­fy them as ar­tist­s' pu­bli­ca­ti­ons, which are re­pro­du­ced, pu­blis­hed and edi­ted ar­tis­tic works.

In ke­eping with the the­me, Artists‘ Publications: analog – digital! will take place both as a ca­bi­net ex­hi­bi­ti­on at the Cen­ter for Artist's Pu­bli­ca­ti­ons and on this web­site as an on­line ex­hi­bi­ti­on.
