schwarz-weiss magazin

Max Schulze & Katrin Menne

Das Heft versteht sich als dokumentierendes Medium das unterschiedliche Herangehensweisen, Ansichten und künstlerischen Positionen der zeitgenössischen bildenden Kunst vorstellt. Es reduziert sich auf einige wenige Künstler und gibt ihnen ausreichend Platz sich und ihre
Arbeiten angemessen darzustellen.

Das Heft ist in schwarz-weiß gehalten. Es wird nicht fest gebunden oder geheftet. Dadurch sind die Seiten herausnehmbar und das Heft erhält über den rein darstellenden Charakter heraus den Objektcharakter einer grafischen Edition, deren Einzelseiten als unabhängige Arbeiten funktionieren.

Max Schulze & Katrin Menne

The magazine focuses on different approaches and artistic positions in contemporary visual art.
Not like other large art magazines, schwarz-weiss concentrates only on a few artists to provide
enough space and freedom to represent the art works in an appropriate manner. The magazine itself consists of loose and folded A3 pages in an edition of 500 to 750 copies.
Designed and printed in black on white, it is neither bounded nor stapled, so the pages can be taken out and function as a separate artistic work in multiple forms. Thus the magazine is not only a descriptive medium, it also has characteristic qualities of an art object.

The focus of schwarz-weiss is placed on the artistic point of view and its resulting work,
rather than on describing an artistic character. The magazine comments about artistic methods
and points of view by showing basic works, research results and sketches, which are formed
into a closed contribution.Compared to the high glossy art magazines, books and exhibitions,
we felt the need to go back to the basics and make a rough contrasting magazine with strong
artistic statements. We wanted to reduce directly to artistic content by using only black and white. Schwarz-weiss is a documenting medium, whose target group is not the big market,
but artists and other culture-creators. One of our goals is to net artists by organizing the magazine and at least three exhibitions or magazine presentations together with the artists.
