    Mission

    Projekt Papier aims to actively engage and stimulate a multifaceted discourse that defines, processes and contextualizes art on paper operating within wider notions of materiality.

    At the center of this project‘s inquiry is an evaluation of the psychological and cultural associations with material and a recognition of the internal as well as external factors that govern 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. Curatorial activity and written contributions from creative thinkers in the fields of art, literature and philosophy provide a critical framework for these issues.

    Funds from artwork sales directly support the artists and Projekt Papier’s publishing of online text archives.
