Presentation and discussion of current artist magazine formats

with InterCity (Hamburg), muss sterben (Munich/Hannover) and The Critical Ass (Vienna/Berlin)

Moderated by Gloria Hasnay (Curator), Moritz Nebenführ (Curator), Nadja Quante (Artistic Director, Künstlerhaus Bremen)

“Magazine for federalism and polyamory” is the subtitle of the artists’ magazine InterCity. This already calls for real-political pragmatism and a new science fiction, which, according to the makers, must take the place of missing utopias. The slightly depressive tone that runs through the published essays, exhibition reviews and interviews is due to the disastrous zeitgeist. But they counter this, they say, with relaxed coolness downgrading, seriousness and resolute anti-hysteria.

Editor Steffen Zillig (*1981) is an artist and writes essays and reviews for magazines such as Texte zur Kunst, Kultur & Gespenster and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.


    is a biannual magazine that has been published by Stephan Janitzky and Sebastian Stein since 2014. Six issues have now been published. Only available in full four-color print, something has to die in every issue, a motivation to engage with the world, a kind of negative attractive punchline. Taking a rather loose conceptual approach, they are interested in creating something like a chain letter by inviting authors and artists over and over again over several issues. They distribute MUSS STERBEN through subscriptions, as personal gifts and at live presentations in bars, art spaces and fairs.
