Nowiswere contemporary art magazine will launch its first printed issue on the occasion of the exhibition fig-2 34/50 Veronika Hauer. The event Nowiswere Published Issue # 1 London features an introduction on Nowiswere by the magazine's founding editors Veronika Hauer and Fatos Üstek followed by the screening of Objects by artist Andreas Heller and a reading of Language Bent by artist Barbara Kapusta.
34/50 Veronika Hauer is at fig-2 from Monday 24 – Sunday 30 August 2015.
Nowiswere Contemporary Art Magazine is a web-based publication, prioritising the moment of production and encounter, hence publishing issues as distinct bodies of work that are compiled in the specificity of its contributors’ time-space-experience. The title of the magazine refers to the inexplicable, ungraspable but palpable nature of ‘now’, commissioning artists, curators, critics, academics, theoreticians to project upon as well as to produce their reception of a marked instant of time in their current creative involvement.
