> Traveling Magazine Table (a project by Nomads&Residents
> ( is getting to its fourth step. After the
> Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius (2003), Art in General in New York
> (2004) and M.I.T. in Boston (2005) it will be hosted by Iaspis in
> Stockholm between April 21-30, 2006. Iaspis will host the archive of
> magazines we have already received plus all the new ones we will
> receive in the meantime. In Stockholm the project will be staged by
> Karl Larsson and Andreas Mangione (you find their self-presentations
> included at the end of this document).
> It is particularly important to have contemporary art magazines from
> all over the world. Therefore, if you are personally involved in a
> publication of a contemporary art periodical that has no commercial
> worldwide distribution, or you know of someone who is, or you want to
> provide us with information that could be useful for this project,
> please do let us know.
> Nomads+Residents has a special interest in projects that develop on a
> collective basis and in artistic practices that involve making
> resources and ideas available for common use. With this in mind,
> Nomads+Residents initiated Magazine Table. The Magazine Table consisted
> of collecting a broad variety of national and international magazines,
> journals, and similar printed publications produced by non-profit and
> alternative spaces, artists' collectives, groups, teams, and other
> forms of collaborations. The results granted an unexpected insight into
> the discourses and networks existing outside the mainstream channels of
> art.
> The Traveling Magazine Table activates the circulation of and gives
> access to printed publications, many of which have a very limited
> distribution. It provides information about ideas, projects, practices,
> and discussions taking place in the broader field of contemporary art
> and culture. With each participating venue, the Traveling Magazine
> Table will be updated with new materials, and made available for public
> consultation. To update the Traveling Magazine Table, and thus to
> guarantee its continuity and growth, Nomads+Residents, its network, and
> the participating host venues, will announce and distribute an open
> call for submissions to receive new publications. A list of
> contributions will be published on the Nomads+Residents website. We
> invite you to contribute to Traveling Magazine Table.

> A displacement of focus from studio to exhibition space means, for me,
> that it leaves the problems of individuals struggling whilst making way
> for a discussion concerning the collective. Foremost, it’s a question
> of positioning oneself towards society. As a single individual one is
> almost doomed to produce and consume unique products, whereas, as a
> collective one can ask questions and make demands – both on rights and
> obligations. As an artist I think the issue of belonging and standpoint
> become very important as one publicly positions oneself in the world
> within the work. Through this activity one becomes an example to
> follow. My work tries to be a changeable outline for an artistic
> practise and a way to examine from what direction and with what voice
> authorities speak. I work collaboratively with several artists and I am
> the editor for the magazine U-N-I-O-N. At this time I work mainly with
> text, printed material, lectures and gestures. My working situation is
> very similar to that of a writer, with the difference of being neither
> a publishing agency nor an isolated space, but where the work can
> function autonomous, exist. During my period at Iaspis I’ll be working
> in collaboration with Andreas Mangione on the project entitled The
> Archive of Small Fragments of War Enshrined in Everyday Life.
> Andreas Mangione, artist-in-residence at Iaspis in Stockholm from 1
> April – 30 September 2006
> Through work with facades, text and lectures I let another historical
> and geographical context interplay with, and find an expression in,
> contemporary and local monuments, institutions and micro cultures. What
> interests me is how a possibility for a decisive self-reference occurs
> in that kind of meeting, where the production of myth and reality
> uncovers and becomes general property, new thoughts and new realities.
> During my time at Iaspis I will be working in collaboration with Karl
> Larsson on The Archive of Small Fragments of War Enshrined in Everyday
> Life.
