BLACK PAGES is a monthly releasing artist-fanzine in an edition of 300 pieces.
BLACK PAGES comes in the format A5, including 20 pages, printed in black&white.
BLACK PAGES invites one artist to collaborate and renames after his/her forename.
BLACK PAGE is also the name of a Franck Zappa zine http://www.afka.net/Fanzines/bp.htm
BLACK PAGES answer a few questions from ARTZINES:
– Who are you? Where are you based?
We are Christoph Meier, Ute Müller and Nick Oberthaler – three visual artists, based in Vienna/Austria.

– Why do you make zines? To say what? In relation to a subculture heritage?
for us is just simply a way of inviting and collaborating with artists we like and discuss, and give them
space within 16 black and white offset printed A5 pages.

– What type of content can people find in your zines
our project is an editorial project only – meaning, the three of us discuss artists we like and from whom we think their
work or approach is relevant in a certain way and from whom we think the work fits with our conception.
we give them a kind of „wildcard“: within the size of 16 pages (plus the inside cover pages) the artist is
completely free of what he/her wants to do. we consider the white pages like a white cube, an invitation for realizing
anything within this „space“. one thing that stays the same and can’t be touched is the coverage of each issue –
always named after the forename of the artist. as we are an editorial project we don’t accept applications – sorry.

– Can you tell us about a specific project or a particular zine, which is a good example of what you do?
there is so many zines/zine projects, i can’t think of any particular now – basically we are doing artist zines only,
so no comic/music/subculture related background necessarily. they are cheap artist editions in a print run of 300.

– And last one, out of curiosity, is there only one issue by first name? what about artist who have the same first name?
then we have just a second one with the same forename, not a big deal 😉
