Explanatory brochure of Micheal Blum’s exhibition L’underground à la loupe by Sarah Watson, 2018

“Join us for the opening reception of L’underground à la loupe, the conclusion of Michael Blum’s research residency at Artexte. Working with periodicals from the 1960s to the end of the 1980s in the collection, the exhibition explores the space between ‘zine, art magazine, activist and niche publications, that are hand-made or almost, independent and with a ‘can-do’ attitude. Photographically reframing and cropping the visual content of these documents, Michael Blum amplifies their scale by projecting them onto the walls of the gallery. The images are thus re-situated in two important ways: a shift from the intimate space of a page to the exhibition space, and a leap in time from the past of their print beginnings to the present in the large-scale rendering in the galleryThese material and temporal alterations are revelatory of how the appearance and purpose of underground image-making has both changed and remained the same.”
