5 novembre – 14 dicembre 2011, London
From photo-copied and print-on-demand newsletters such as Another Pamphlet, Scapegoat and Preston is My Paris, to beautiful magazines such as Mark, Spam and PIN-UP - ARCHIZINES is a new FREE exhibition curated by Elias Redstone for the Architectural Association School of Architecture that celebrates and promotes the recent resurgence of alternative and independent architectural publishing from around the world. The exhibition opens on 5 November and runs until 14 December 2011 at the AA School, 36 Bedford Square, London, WC1B 3ES. An accompanying catalogue, published by Bedford Press, further explores the relationship between architecture and publishing with contributions from Pedro Gadanho (Beyond), Iker Gil (MAS Context), Adam Murray (Preston is my Paris), Rob Wilson (Block), Mimi Zeiger (Maximum Maxim MMX/loudpaper) and more. Themes addressed in a series of new essays include the role of publishing in academia and architectural practice, and the representation of architecture in fictional writing, photography, magazines and fanzine culture. To coincide with the exhibition the full ARCHIZINES collection is being transferred to the National Art Library at the V&A. By providing a permanent home for the publications collected as part of this research project, this period of publishing activity will be available as a public resource for generations to come.
