the Artists in their Own Words


is a recent artist’s magazine (°2000), entirely dedicated to the publication of especially written and unpublished texts by artists who are now working, anywhere in the world. Each issue contains a number of artists’ writings, if possible from an equal number of countries. The texts are published in their original language and alphabetical writing, with unabridged translations in English added. Advertising and visual material are deliberately kept out. In collaboration with the Research Centre for Artists’ Publications / Archive for small Press& Communication (ASPC) at the Neues Museum Weserburg in Bremen (Germany), GAGARIN features a supplementary Index of Artists’ Writings published world wide. GAGARIN is indexed in Art Biography Modern ABM byCambridge Scientific Abstracts, Oxford, UK. GAGARIN is aimed at those who do not tend to wait until everything is accepted and synthesised and those who are prepared to leave the road to search for stimulating art and ideas while they are still fresh. GAGARIN does not restrict itself to a particular period or import and runs trough the codes thatare applied in the world of art. Its orientation is artistic,documentary and historical. GAGARIN also aspires to provide an accurate source of information about the collaborating artists, using their ownwords.
