Spike started in 2004 in Vienna as an artists’ initiative. It is a bilingual (German/English) quarterly and is available in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Prague, Budapest, Bratislava at the kiosk and in selected bookshops. And soon in magazine shops next to you!

Each issue is introduced by an internationally known critic’s essay on a recent art phenomenon. This time the artist / critic MIKE KELLEY makes an appeal for the artist as critic.

It is spike’s concept to offer art producers the possibility of not only taking center stage but also getting in a word on their selves and others. Again five striking international artists are portrayed in detail.
