Letter to Our Readers


With the present volume of Parkett 99 and the following special issue 100/101 appearing this summer, the publishers have decided to bring the publication of the printed art magazine to a close. One of the major factors behind this decision is the radical change in reading behaviour brought about by our digital age.

Parkett volumes and editions will, of course, remain fully documented online on our website and available via our offices in Zurich and New York. Furthermore, all volumes including 1500 texts are currently being digitized and will become accessible on our website. New, expanded Parkett exhibitions in various museums are in preparation as well, and will further explore the publication’s singular approach as a time capsule of the art of the last three decades.

We would like to thank you, our readers, for your interest and your loyalty and we are looking forward to the special double issue this summer.

Walter Keller (1953 – 2014)

Our dear friend Walter Keller passed away on September 1, 2014. Walter: brilliant, lively, generous, and mercurial. Without him, we wouldn’t have Parkett. We sat and talked and complained. He said, don’t complain, do something, start a magazine. So we did. We started Parkett in 1984 with Walter as our co-founder and co-publisher until 1993. We are deeply grateful for the excitement and inspiration of his wonderful presence. We will miss him.

The memorial for Walter Keller will take place in Zurich on Wednesday, September 17, 2 PM at Fraumünster Church.

Jacqueline Burckhardt, Bice Curiger, Dieter von Graffenried & the entire Parkett team in Zurich and New York.

”Small is Beautiful” opens at Parkett’s Zurich Space February 14

The exhibition SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL at Parkett’s Space in Zurich presents for the first time eighty small- and miniature-format editions made by artists since the founding of Parkett thirty years ago. The works are often smaller than a hand and rarely larger than a Parkett page. By presenting small objects, photographs, and prints in many media and techniques, the exhibition also explores the meaning of size and dimension in contemporary art and illustrates that inspired work exists independent from scale. To further underline this idea, the display of small works is complemented by the largest work ever made for Parkett, a three-by-seven-meter billboard by Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

This exhibition runs February 15 – July 15, 2014.

Parkett 88: Kerstin Brätsch, Paul Chan, Sturtevant, and Andro Wekua (Published March 2011)

ISBN 978-3-90758248

The new Parkett Vol. 88 begins with a dialogue entitled “Staging an Opera of Knowledge” between the marvelously articulate Herbert Lachmeyer and Jacqueline Burckhardt. Juri Steiner considers the Zentrum Paul Klee’s Summer Academy in Bern and debates what is accomplished in today’s art school “laboratory” relative to the passionate utopian pedagogy of the early twentieth century. This volume also features an Insert project by artist Silke Otto-Knapp and an unfurling discussion between abstract painter Suzan Frecon and her daughter, poet Marcella Durand, revealing a portrait of a truly painterly family.

Parkett 87: Annette Kelm, Kelley Walker, Cerith Wyn Evans, and Katharina Fritsch (Published March 2010)

ISBN 978-3-907582-47

The new Parkett features an eclectic range of essays by various authors including art historian Marina Warner, whose account of the Trans-Atlantic cable conjures a time when science and dreams were intertwined. Richard Phillips persuades us (in words, not paint) that the misunderstood Swiss artist Adolf Dietrich (1877–1957) was in fact a faux-naïf and a cunning technician of representation. Philip Kaiser examines the Met’s recent “Pictures Generation” exhibition, remarking how a distinctive little group show in a New York gallery came to define such an influential movement in contemporary art. Also in this issue an insert by Allen Ruppersberg.
