Nearly forty years have passed since Gerhard Theewen founded Salon Magazin with original contributions by young, some well-known and a few famous artists. Between 1977 and 1982, eleven issues were published – as well as a special, retrospective 12th issue in 1992 and in 2008 a complete reprint (2 volumes in a slipcase).
In March 2016, Salon Magazin was revived – and is open again for contemporary art.
All contributions will again take the form of double page spreads. The contributions will be printed in black-and-white only and arranged alphabetically by artist names. Salon Magazin again includes no essays and no editorial articles. Each year, 3–4 issues will be published. All contributions are created in 1:1 scale especially for the magazine as digitalized works for an analogue medium!
This magazine is not glossy and high-end but a little rough as it was in the 70’s.
Salon was and again is an artmagazine not ON art but AS art!
