  • Projekt Papier

    Projekt Papier aims to actively engage in and stimulate a multifaceted discourse that defines, processes and contextualizes art on paper operating in the digital age.

    Curatorial activity in the form of physical and published exhibitions as well as written contributions from creative thinkers in the fields of art, literature and philosophy provide a critical framework for a collection of ongoing inquires into materiality, archiving, digital vs. analog.

    Projekt Papier’s upcoming volume, Materiality features texts by artists Cara Benedetto, Farrah Karapetian, and writer Anthony Leslie. First in a series of publications by Projekt Papier the modest volume is an evaluation of the psychological and cultural associations with material and a recognition of the internal as well as external factors that occupy materiality. Close consideration is given to qualities of materials and the distinct entities that govern them, such as the material and immaterial, natural and cultural forces, subject /object relationships and the various processes that drive their production.
