Kunstverein Kunstverein Kunstverein

Kunstverein’s in-house magazine is a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Each issue ​of Ginger&Piss (the name is a misquotation of Lawrence Weiner) contains a limited amount of contributions that vary in length according to the subject matter at hand. The remit of Ginger&Piss​ is simple: to provide a platform for candid critique but at the same time allow the author to stay hidden. Therefore, the concept dictates that each contributor writes under a pseudonym. The use of pseudonyms can be considered an answer to the cowardice of the art world, albeit a somewhat hypocritical one. ‘Loud’ is the subject of the first issue and it is a broad—probably far too broad—theme (if a theme at all). In fact, ‘Quiet’ might have been more appropriate. But we at Ginger&Piss think a clear, ‘honest’ voice is better suggested by volume than by whispering.
