Kunstverein’s in house magazine is a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Each issue ’Ginger&Piss’ (the name is a misquotation of Laurence Weiner) contains a limited amount of contributions that vary in length according to the subject matter at hand. The remit of ‘Ginger&Piss’ is simple; to provide a platform for candid critique but at the same time allow the author to stay hidden. The concept dictates that each contributor writes under a pseudonym; the use of pseudonyms can be considered an answer to the cowardice of the art world, albeit a somewhat hypocritical one.
