The Artist Run Space Redaktion is the editorial office is the homebase of _957 Independent Art Magazine and organizes exhibitions and discourses of contemporary art
The Redaktion is the exhibition and negotiation space of Stephan Wittmer and Simon Kindle. Located in a former car repair station it shows in particular positions that arise in cooperation with the monthly publication _957 Independent Art Magazine. Accordingly, the editorial office repeatedly becomes the three-dimensional space of the printed magazine pages. The archive of all 152 issues to date is also permanently accessible, housing numerous unique works by important Swiss artists. Behind the big blue gate, additional discursive formats are negotiated and planned. The editorial team also provides a platform for young artists. In the adjacent backyard, which houses an overgrown parking lot in the middle of the city, the editorial office mediates unused billboards.
“We believe in the power of global positions of attentive and alert artists in contemporary art.”
Participating artists: Quirina Lechmann (CH/BE), Albert Mayr (AT) and Simon Kindle (LI)
