Curated by Adam Carr

From André Breton’s La Révolution surréaliste to printed publications offering space for artist projects today, the magazine has served as a site for artistic production for decades. In Print revolves around the magazine as a location for artwork, looking at recent instances in which artists have utilised this format in periodicals from a variety of origins.

Offering a short history of the fusion of artwork and magazine, In Print focuses more on recent cases than those of the past, on publications whose contents are entirely available for handling and viewing by visitors. In doing so, In Print not only foregrounds the artists’ original intention of choosing such an available context as a site for work, but also intends to encourage participation and eschew the frontal, expected relationship of artwork and viewer.

Taking the form of a library shelf, with all of the included publications ordered according to the participating artists’ surnames, In Print is the first in a series of curated bookshelf projects at e-flux reading room.
