The celebratory 500 page closing print issue

The collaborative strength of Parkett unfolds with artists and writers, with retrospective and future views — one last time. Parkett’s closing print issue is a double one — one volume is a traditional issue, this time with ten new artist collaborations, while the other consists of recollections and tributes.

Going forward, Parkett volumes and editions will remain fully documented on the website and available via the Zurich and New York offices. Furthermore, all volumes including 1500 texts are currently being digitized and will become accessible online. New, expanded Parkett exhibitions in various museums are in preparation as well, which will further explore the publication’s singular approach as a thirty-three-year time capsule and archive.

The double issue features collaborations with Nairy Baghramian, Maurizio Cattelan, Marlene Dumas, Katharina Fritsch, Katharina Grosse, Marilyn Minter, Jean-Luc Mylayne, Nicolas Party, Pipilotti Rist, and Jordan Wolfson. Each artist has created as usual a special limited edition

Collaboration texts are by Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith (on Nairy Baghramian), Massimiliano Gioni (on Maurizio Cattelan), Tamar Garb (on Marlene Dumas), Jacqueline Burckhardt (on Katharina Fritsch), Barry Schwabsky (on Katharina Gorsse), Nancy Spector (on Marilyn Minter), Matthew S. Witkovsky (on Jean-Luc Mylayne), Ali Subotnick (on Nicolas Party), Juliana Engberg (on Pipilotti Rist), and Andrew Russeth (on Jordan Wolfson).

Previous collaboration artists have sent in some one hundred image and short text contributions. >Explore here

The second half of the issue opens with two roundtables on the future of art publishing. The first discussion, moderated by editor Mark Welzel, took place in Berlin and featured Diedrich Diederichsen (writer on music, art, cinema, theatre, and politics), Jörg Heiser (director of the Institut für Kunst im Kontext at the Universität der Künste, Berlin), Olaf Nicolai (artist), Susanne Pfeffer (director of the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt), and Steffen Zillig (artist and writer), in addition to Parkett’s founding editors, Bice Curiger and Jacqueline Burckhardt.

A New York conversation, moderated by executive editor Nikki Columbus, included Hal Foster (Professor at Princeton University, art critic, art historian, and co-editor, October), Michelle Kuo (former editor-in-chief, Artforum), and Hrag Vartanian (critic, curator, editor-in-chief and co-founder, Hyperallergic), as well as Curiger.

Statements from Parkett’s past editors, curators, translators, and designers highlight what made the magazine special, while a wide and diverse range of artists write in to heap accolades in the form of images and texts.
