When artists publish: Berlin–Los angeles   Sprüth Magers Los Angeles   september 15 - september 15 2018

Saturday, September 15, 4pm

There is a long history of artists working as publishers, from Alfred Stieglitz’s journal 'Camera Work' to 'The Situationist Times'. These publishing enterprises created potent vehicles for collaborating with other artists and disseminating their work in innovative ways. This mode of working is as present as ever, with exhibitions and fairs devoted to artists’ presses and publications, even as digital platforms have outpaced traditional printing methods. On the occasion of Thomas Scheibitz’s exhibition at Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles, a panel of artist-publishers including Scheibitz will discuss their motivations, techniques, and philosophies around publishing in a variety of forms.
