“ARTISTS’ ARTISTS”

www.textezurkunst.de

This issue of “Texte zu Kunst” is dedicated to the phenomenon of “artists’ artists”. The term designates largely unknown artists who are passed on as “insider tips” to dealers and curators by colleagues, or are integrated in artworks in the form of quotes or references. “Artists’ artists” have the aura of those recommended by experts but whom the market and the established art institutions have hitherto failed to notice. Nevertheless, “artists’ artists” are being increasingly marketed as of late. Against this backdrop, the current issue seeks to develop a genealogy of “artists’ artistry” and discussing it in view of current institutional and market-specific developments.

Plus reviews from New York, Berlin, Vienna, Zurich, Baden-Baden, Salamanca, Nürnberg, Wolfsburg, Hamburg and Barcelona

Exclusive new artists’ editions:
Thomas Bayrle, Tim Eitel, Paul Chan
