Artist Magazines of the GDR
Small Edition Magazines with Original Graphics and Texts from 1980-1989
The SLUB Dresden owns an extensive collection of magazines from the 1980s, which were produced underground in the GDR. The thematic portal Artist Magazines of the GDR presents this collection, in which, as a result of a joint project between the Institute of New German Studies and the SLUB Dresden that was funded by the German Research Council (DFG), these unique original works can now be seen in digital form.
Besides providing direct access to the digitalized versions of 177 issues of 24 different series, this portal offers an introduction and overview of the topic of artists’ self-published printed matter. We look forward to integrating further artist magazines into this thematic portal and receiving further information.
