Ginger&Piss #5: Audience

Published by Kunstverein Publishing, Amsterdam, 2020, 20 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 19 × 20 cm, English

Price: €15

Kunstverein’s in-house magazine is a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Each issue 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. Therefore, each contributor writes under a pseudonym. This issue takes the topic of ‘audience’ as its starting point and seeks to serve two aims: on the one hand it provides unfabricated answers to questions about who Kunstverein’s audience really is (or is not, yet!) via an online survey developed by the editors, Reinier Klok and Isabelle Sully, and on the other it attempts to bring to the surface the many factors that can complicate statistical reasoning in the first place.
