Please feel welcome to join us on Saturday 3 June, at 5pm for the launch of Kunstverein‘s sporadic in-house magazine Ginger&Piss. With a musical intermezzo by Smári Runar Róbertsson*
Kunstverein’s in house magazine is a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Ginger&Piss (the name is a misquotation of Laurence Weiner) is published whenever we see fit, each issue containing a limited amount of contributions that vary in length according to the subject matter at hand. Loud and Gay where the themes of number 1 & 2, respectively; Ginger&Piss 3 is dedicated to Privacy.
The remit of Ginger&Piss is simple; to provide a platform for candid critique but at the same time allow the AUTHOR to stay hidden. The concept dictates that each contributor writes under a pseudonym; the use of pseudonyms can be considered an answer to the cowardice of the art world, albeit a somewhat hypocritical one.
*and one final installment to this Salon Hang by Nerijus Rimkus. We’re happy to announce that since our opening we have added works by the following members: Christine van Royen, Frits Bergsma, Angelo Tromp, Gijs Stork, and Maria Barnas.
Kunstverein wishes to thank its (Gold) members, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and Ammodo for their support.
