“WRITING FOR STEFAN GERMER”

www.textezurkunst.de

The new issue pays homage to Stefan Germer, the co-founder of this journal, who died in 1998 — that is ten years ago. It was the distinctive strength of Germer’s writings that they were always both meeting academic standards and the criteria of journalism. Today these competencies have severed virtually all ties. Shedding light on the reasons behind this questionable development was one aim of the current issue as well as to revive a problem-oriented form of art-critical writing — not least in memory of Stefan Germer.

Plus reviews from New York, Berlin, Santa Monica, London, Munich, Baden-Baden, Vienna, Bologna, Düsseldorf, and Castellón

Exclusive new artists’ editions:
Raymond Pettibon, Gerhard Richter, Annette Kelm
