OBJECTS – Journal of Applied Arts

On October 17th, 2008, the first issue of „OBJECTS – Journal for Applied Arts / Magazin für angewandte Künste” was published.

The two publishers, Berlin curators Katja Kleiss and Pascal Johanssen, intended to launch a magazine that explores international trends in new craft and discusses them in photo spreads and essays. The title „OBJECTS – Journal of Applied Arts“ is programmatic: OBJECTS interests itself in the individual artistic craftwork: the object. It covers the entire range of applied arts, from illustration, graphic and textile art, pottery, glass works, to book art. It discusses the importance of material and craft, taking into consideration the genres of art and design as well as their social relevance and context. OBJECTS will be published quarterly and is bilingual (German / English).

Every issue offers academic essays, non-academic contributions by artists, and photo spreads spanning several pages. The publication primarily targets the 20-to 45-year-old age bracket: young readers with an interest in art as well as a specialist audience made up of designers, illustrators, graphic-designers, architects, artists and researchers.

Authors of the first issue’s essays are art critic Colleen Schindler-Lynch (Toronto), artist Robert Revels (San Francisco), designer Scott Ballum (New York), as well as artist Gregori Saavedra (Barcelona).

Every new issue gives an overview of the most exciting art/design trends and is designed by renowned graphic artists and illustrators. The first issue bears the artistic style of the well known graphic artist and art director Roman Bittner.

The production of the magazine is done in cooperation with first-class partners. OBJECTS is printed on 150 g/m² and 350 g/m² EuroArt Plus Silk by the renowned paper makers m-real. We chose EuroArt Plus as a high quality paper that has lower environmental impact thanks to its lighter weight and sparing use of raw materials. Printing is done by Besscom AG, Berlin.


The cover price is € 10,00/ CHF 16,00.
