Alongisde the regular, massive distribution all over Europe, Kaleidoscope Summer issue will have an extra distribution in Venice, Basel and Athens (where it will also present a site-specific installation by the cult architect and artist Gianni Pettena, in the context of the ReMap program which runs parallel to the Athens Biennale).

Kaleidoscope is the first European free magazine of contemporary art and culture, a bimonthly publication with a circulation of more than 50,000 copies distributed across an international network of 25 countries making for a total of 400 points of distribution, to an audience of up to 250,000 readers.

Kaleidoscope boldly intends to create a platform for information that will satisfy the demands of the contemporary art enthusiast—an attentive and demanding reader with a discerning eye on the art scene, who requires, above all, that a magazine be a faithful guide, capable of orienting his or her appreciation toward new avenues and discoveries. Kaleidoscope is also committed to fostering genuine engagement and research, whether in the form of images or cultural criticism. Prestigious writers, challenging exchanges between artists and curators, and the magazine’s authoritative voice will all contribute to shaping contemporary discourse. While the focus will be on contemporary art, there will also be incursions into related fields, such as architecture, design, and fashion.

Alongside the publication of the magazine, the activity of Kaleidoscope includes:
- a project space for exhibitions, located in our headquarters and animated by a rigorous and highly selective programme; the space also features an extensive stock of international art, architecture, design and fashion magazines available to browse or buy. Upcoming exhibition: Harald Thys / Jos de Gruyter, opening on May 26.
- an editorial production of catalogs and monographs, academic texts, artists’ books and editions. From time to time, our publications will assume different formats and strategies of distribution: our aim is to explore all the opportunities offered by printed matter and publications in general for a variety of customers who seek a stimulating and dependable partner.
- an art agency at disposal of both institutional and private organizations in need of a highly professional consulting staff, able to develop all the stages of a project, from production to communication strategies.
