Traveling Magazine Table (TMT) comprises some 400 international art and culture magazines (over 1.500 unique issues). Visitors at Iaspis Project studio can browse through a wealth of offbeat, eccentric and avant-garde magazines and journals. In conjunction with TMT, we will arrange a series of seminars with presentations of the magazines, readings and discussions. For the spatial design of TMT at Iaspiss Project studio, Karl Larsson and Andreas Mangione will work site-specifically with the idea of the Academy as a constantly changing distribution channel for dialogue, knowledge and form. Linking the production site with the exhibition space, the present with the past, living people with restless, elusive ghosts, will pave the way for the contemporary document TMT.

After having visited three places, Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, Art in General, New York, and M.I.T., Boston, TMT will now be shown in Stockholm. The range of publications continues to grow, by local and international appeals on every stop of the tables journey. Two months ago, Iaspis made an appeal for magazines on behalf of TMT and we have so far received some additional 700 issues from all over the world.

Those interested in art journals and magazines will find a cornucopia of art magazines that have made their way to Stockholm without the aid of the distribution giants. If you have the time to take a closer look at the magazines, TMT can offer you a global journey through the art world with journals ranging from A-Z public limited to Zine $ZZZZzzzz, from handmade fanzines like Eugene to established magazines like Parkett. We can guarantee that you will make some new acquaintances.

The TMT project is driven by a desire to show the wide spectrum of journals and magazines published by artists, artist groups and independent groups all over the world. The publications will illuminate discussions and networks beyond the mainstream channels of the visual art world. TMT was initiated by the art collective Nomads & Residents (Bikvanderpol and Cesare Pietrousti) in 2001.

The seminar programme will focus on phenomena such as artist writing, and the conditions, the future and the role of art journals in the public discussion. Among the participants are Zandra Ahl, co-editor Slicker (Stockholm) Thomas Boutoux, critic, curator, editor (Paris), Marie-Louise Ekman, artist (Stockholm), Matias Faldbakken, artist (Oslo), Regina Möller, artist, art historian, editor (Berlin), Sven-Olov Wallenstein, philosopher, critic, editor (Stockholm), Lars Ilshammar, historian specialised at IT and politics and director for the Labour Movement Archives and Library (Örebro/Stockholm), Jonas (J) Magnusson, translator, essayist, editor (Stockholm), Georg Schöllhammer, director documenta 12 magazine, editor, curator (Wien) and Antek Walczak, artist, film maker, publisher (Berlin).
The magazines can be read at Iaspis Project studio which is open Sat 22 – 29 April from 12 – 6, Sun 30 April 12 3, or by appointment. Iaspis, Jakobsgatan 27, floor 4, Stockholm.
