The collaborative strength of Parkett unfolds with artists and writers, with retrospective and future views—one more time. Parkett’s closing print issue is a double one—one volume is a traditional issue, this time with ten new artist collaborations, while the other consists of recollections and tributes.

Going forward we invite you to follow Parkett, its books, editions, exhibitions, and more online and on social media.

The double issue features collaborations with Nairy Baghramian, Maurizio Cattelan, Marlene Dumas, Katharina Fritsch, Katharina Grosse, Marilyn Minter, Jean-Luc Mylayne, Nicolas Party, Pipilotti Rist, and Jordan Wolfson. As usual each artist has created a special limited edition. Explore here

"... a pertinent, unique and irreplaceable publication, I was proud to be part of it."
–Xu Zhen (Parkett 96)

“… my favorite art magazine. The only one I look forward to reading, the only one I learn something from." –Marilyn Minter (Parkett 79)

In a Cumulus from New York, Tom Eccles surveys how the city's art scene has changed over the course of Parkett’s run. Taylor Renee Aldridge contributes a Cumulus from Detroit, discussing the city’s activist arts collectives. For Les Infos du Paradis, Tavia Nyong’o examines the performance art of Narcissister, while Marina Warner’s Balkon considers the meaning of Parkett, and parquet.

The second half of the issue opens with two roundtables on the future of art publishing. The first discussion, moderated by editor Mark Welzel, took place in Berlin and featured Diedrich Diederichsen (writer on music, art, cinema, theatre, and politics), Jörg Heiser (director of the Institut für Kunst im Kontext at the Universität der Künste, Berlin), Olaf Nicolai (artist), Susanne Pfeffer (director of the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt), and Steffen Zillig (artist and writer), in addition to Parkett’s founding editors, Bice Curiger and Jacqueline Burckhardt. A New York conversation, moderated by executive editor Nikki Columbus, included Hal Foster (Professor at Princeton University, art critic, art historian, and co-editor, October), Michelle Kuo (former editor-in-chief, Artforum), and Hrag Vartanian (critic, curator, editor-in-chief and co-founder, Hyperallergic), as well as Bice Curiger.

Statements from Parkett’s past editors, curators, translators, and designers highlight what made the magazine special.

Moving forward, beyond vol. 100/101: Parkett's 33-year time capsule & archive
Going forward, Parkett volumes and editions will remain fully documented on the website and available via the Zurich and New York offices. Furthermore, all volumes and 1500 texts are currently being digitized and will become accessible online. New, expanded Parkett exhibitions in various museums are in preparation, which will further explore the publication’s singular approach as a 33-year time capsule and archive. You are welcome to follow Parkett online, by newsletter and on social media.

Thank you
When Parkett was founded in 1984, no one thought the project had much of a chance. Then the unexpected occurred: the journal was published for 33 years. For that, we are grateful for the commitment and contributions of many exceptional collaborators. We feel greatly indebted to our readers and collectors in over 50 countries, to the artists, and all who have supported Parkett throughout these years.
