PARKETT GOES CLOSE UP

Which is why Parkett gives you the best picture of contemporary art

Parkett does not report on art from the outside in; Parkett discovers art from the inside out. Each volume focuses on several of the world’s most compelling and important artists, who actively participate in creating the publication down to the selection of the visuals and the page layout. More than 210 such monographic artists’ portraits and a total of 1400 texts have been published since 1984. This is what a collaboration artist means to Parkett.

PARKETT GIVES PLENTY

With more exciting contributions in each volume

Besides the artists’ collaborations each volume contains an „Insert“: a sequence of 10 -12 color pages designed by the selected artist. „Cumulus“ gives art professionals a chance to air their views on a topical issue of their choice. Other features include „Balkon“, „Les Infos du Paradis“, three or four articles on other artists, and above all, Parkett‘s famous artists’ editions.
