Launch: RESOLUTION Magazine (EN)

20 10 2019 14:00 15:30

This event marks the launch of RESOLUTION, a new print magazine that tackles images in relation to their online circulation. Its first issue addresses the building block of digital images: the pixel.

Lancement RESOLUTION Magazine

From a multiverse of images, RESOLUTION magazine persistently engages with one guiding question: how do digital images format reality? In order to examine digital images in relation to their online presence, RESOLUTION wagers an implausible attempt to trap them in printed form. The magazine acts as a dissecting table for analyzing digital images cut loose from big and small screens, taken out of their “native” circulation.

To celebrate our first issue, we will screen what remains / geriye kalanlar (2018, 7 min.) from belit sağ. The artist will be present to discuss her film with art historian Kyveli Lignou-Tsamantani. Curator Laurens Otto and artist Jochem van Laarhoven, respectively editor-in-chief and image editor of RESOLUTION, will further present the magazine and its graphic design by D-E-A-L.

RESOLUTION magazine #0: The Pixel will be available for purchase at the event.
