Here and There is Everywhere

 

Susanne Padberg has been the owner of Galerie DRUCK & BUCH since 1994 – first in Tübingen and now in Vienna. The gallery, next door to the Freud Museum in Vienna, specializes in international contemporary book art.  As a traveling book art gallerist and curator in both Europe and the United States, she has encountered a number of differences in the book art world here and there. Despite that, she addresses three aspects – collecting, mission/contents/aesthetics, and book form.

From Finland barefoot in snow

Tatjana Bergelt discusses her recent artist book From Finland barefoot in snow, a cassette with two books, edition of 4, Northern Sami / Finnish/ German languages, 2015. Focusing on the existential poetry by Sami activist Nils Aslak Valkeapää, yet deeply differing from Middle European existentialism, this artists' book project respects the very core of Nomad culture of the indigenous people of Europe in its visual form. Sami people have been relatively isolated in the very Northern part of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia. They speak 10 different languages but yet still must fight for their rights of land ownership and identity.

We always try to keep it simple

Åse Eg Jørgensen, Jesper Fabricius and Jesper Rasmussen are co-editors of Pist Protta, a journal like no other. Firstly because it is rare that a Danish journal dedicated to contemporary art survives for so many years – Pist Protta is the oldest existing art journal in Denmark – and secondly, because it does not look like any other art journal. The principal rule the editors have adhered to is that no issue is to be like any previous one in either format or content. According to the co-editors’ motto Pist Protta is not only to be about art, but to be art, the individual issues can be seen as a hybrid between a magazine and an artist's book.
