Fall 2007 Residency: Anne Thurman-Jajes

Artists’ Publications in Canada

Beyond the book form, artists publications represent a variety of formats, including printed matter as well as projects for radio and television. Ms. Thurmann-Jajes’ research to be conducted in September 2007 is also concerned with the dissemination networks involving these artistic productions. This project follows a series of similar research for the Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst (Bremen, Germany) on publishing in Poland (in 2005) and Spain (in 2001).

Anne Thurmann-Jajes is Head of the Studienzentrum für Künstlerpublikationen / ASPC, a division of the Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst (formerly Neues Museum Weserburg Bremen, Germany). As a researcher and curator, Dr. Thurmann-Jajes is responsible for an important international collection of artists publications.
