Elias Redstone, ed.
Archizines celebrates the resurgence of alternative and independent architectural publishing. The exhibition brings together 80 new fanzines, magazines and journals from over 20 countries as a survey of contemporary architectural publishing. Edited by architects, artists and students, these publications provide new platforms for commentary, criticism and research into the spaces we inhabit and the practice of architecture. They make an important, and often radical, addition to architectural discourse and demonstrate the residual love of the printed word and paper page in the digital age.
The Archizines project was originally launched online to catalogue and survey this explosion of publishing activity. The Archizines exhibition (curated by Elias Redstone) was conceived in association with the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London and has toured throughout 2012. The original collection is currently being transferred to the National Art Library at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
