SeitenAnsichten – a symposium with independent photo magazines on focus

Whether as a classic printed booklet, an e-zine in the form of a browsable PDF or a magazine-style internet portal: more and more new independent photography magazines were published in recent years. In periodic editions they present editorially selected portfolios or thematically grouped photographs, while adopting entirely new approaches: They are unconventional in content and concept, in visual language and design, as well as in production, presentation and distribution. But how significant are these magazines and their creators currently in a theoretical discourse and the present art scene?

This year the ZZF – Zentrum für zeitgenössische Fotografie Leipzig e.V. (Centre for Contemporary Photography Leipzig) is completely devoted to the popular medium of the photo magazine. As a final highlight of the series “printed matter”, renowned art experts and international publishers of independent photo magazines are invited to discuss the current development and importance of this emerging medium at the symposium SeitenAnsichten. The forum targets to a general localization of the magazines in the art scene, wants to demonstrate functions and unique features and position the format in the discourse. There will be a comprehensive overview of the historical development, single photo magazines will present their concepts, synergies between all the involved should be created.

The ZZF Leipzig is looking forward to exciting, stimulating and enlightening pages of national and international photo magazines and their creators as well as to lively, discursive views of renowned curators and publishers.

Date
Saturday, 19 October 2013, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Location
Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst
