2013 Casco & DAI invite you to Casco in Utrecht for a Publishing Class talk with Gwen Allen / "Artists Magazines- an alternative space for art" / 18 October at 7 pm
Location: CasCo office (Nieuwekade 213) and CasCo Storefront (Voorstraat 88)
Casco, together with the Dutch Art Institute, gladly invites you to a talk with art historian Gwen Allen in the context of the Publishing Class.
Gwen Allen is invited as the first guest tutor for Publishing Class IV: Community in Print, which focuses on the notion of serial publishing as inspired by art publishing enterprises in the 1970s such as artist collective General Idea's FILE and more contemporary examples like artist Can Altay's journal Ahali. In her talk, Allen will share her expertise on publishing practices worked through in her book Artists' Magazines An Alternative Space for Art (2011). This directory brilliantly excavates the heyday of artists' magazines from the 1960s to the 1980s, contextualizing them within their social milieu and illuminating their function as alternative sites for exhibition practices. During the event Allen's publication is available for sale by San Serriffe along with a small selection of artists' magazines.
Publishing Class is both a course and an imprint of DAI Publications, a collection of artists' books jointly published by the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and CasCo – Office for Art, Design and Theory in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie.
