Kunstverein (Amsterdam, NL) is directed by Krist Gruijthuijsen and Maxine Kopsa. It is a space for presentations of contemporary art practice, including, but not limited to, lectures, performances, and screenings. They have also organized an office in the support of independent publishing, producing both original content and supporting like-minded works in various forms, including, but not limited to, distribution. Their curatorial practice maintains an ethos of critical examination both inward and out, and aims to provide some disruption of the traditional avenues of cultural administration.

D High Level Margins With A Catalog by Nedko Solakov. Commissioned by Kunstverein on the occasion of its first anniversary and the artist's exhibition. Solakov (Sofia, BG) has handwritten comments in apparently empty spaces, at weird levels that require movement and seeking on the part of the viewer. The catalogue functions as key to the physical presentation, but gives any reader a different way "in"; an imagined space, at a different time. 8" x 6.5", 32 pages. Edition of 100. $32. Add to cart
