Abstract

ARCHIZINES (archizines.com) celebrates and promotes the recent resurgence of alternative and independent architectural publishing from around the world, including the KSA's own student publication One:Twelve.

Archizines makes its American Academic debut at the Knowlton School of Architecture’s Banvard Gallery with an exhibition design by Kristy Balliet with KSA students Paul Adair and Tyler Kvochick. A twist on the traditional reading room table, the oscillating system of intersecting and tilted display units highlights both the singular qualities of individual publications while also presenting the entire collection as a cohesive body of work. Assembled together, the magazines, each with a unique color, sheen, paper type and format, create a subtly kaleidoscopic, floating field of contemporary discourse.

The exhibition, curated by Elias Redstone, originated as an online project and showcases 80 architecture magazines, fanzines and journals from over 20 countries. From Australia and Argentina to the UK and USA, these independent publications are reframing how people relate to their built environment – taking comment and criticism out of just an architectural arena and into everyday life. The titles also provide platforms for architectural research and debate, and demonstrate the residual love of the printed word and paper page – providing an antidote to digital publishing. Made by architects, artists and students, they add an important, and often radical, addition to architectural discourse.

The exhibition features titles from the collection alongside video interviews with their creators. Each publication has selected one issue to represent their approach to publishing and they are all available for visitors to read. An accompanying catalogue, published by Bedford Press, explores the relationship between architecture and publishing further through commissioned essays and texts by editors in Europe and North America. The original ARCHIZINES collection will be transferred to the National Art Library at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

The ARCHIZINES touring exhibition was initiated in collaboration with the Architectural Association, London, where it launched in November 2011. The project has been presented in 17 cities including New York, Milan, Montreal, Barcelona, Berlin, Porto, Paris, Osaka and Tokyo and will continue touring internationally through 2013.
