In the press

Exhibition review by Boris Pofalla in the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung", 14:07:13 "Endless sheets of paper — An exhibition in Munich celebrates independent magazines that are not successful despite the internet, but because of it." The article provides an enlightening insight into the presentation "Paper Weight — Genre-defining Magazines 2000 to Now" and observes "Yet how does one transmit the cosmos of a magazine in an exhibition? Isn't the best place to learn about magazines at the kiosk, and then one's own sofa? Felix Burrichter ... curated the exhibition and granted all participants the same amount of space: an opened, over-sized cover, and behind each of these an area of a few square meters, which the magazines could use as they pleased. The fact that visitors can 'enter' the magazines makes sense, because the two-dimensional publications also create spaces."
