The Project as Magazine:
On Sunday, 9/29/2002 in the weekend section of the New York Times
Already several days prior to
the appearance of the actual work of art in the financial section of the
New York Times, the newspaper’s readers will be able to take an
extensive look at the wordsearch project. This year, the "momentary"
occurrence will not be accompanied by a bound catalogue, but by a magazine
supplement to the weekend section of the New York Times on Sunday,
September 29, 2002.
As a part of the medium newspaper, the work,
in similar manner to Sander’s other temporary works of art, will only appear
for a single day in an edition numbering millions.
The layout of the wordsearch
magazine was created by the Canadian design studio Bruce
Mau Design Inc., which has become well-known through its collaboration
Koolhaas, Claes Oldenburg, Frank
Gehry, and numerous other international clients (more on Bruce Mau’s
projects can be found here). As a journey through New York’s microcosms and macrocosms, snapshots of
the city are combined with contributions by German and American authors.
On the 29th of September, you are invited to join the word searcher
Franziska Lamprecht as she follows the trails of the 250 languages spoken
in New York City; get to know Karin Sander's work in a conversation with
the exhibition organizer Hans
Ulrich Obrist; or read a contribution by Hilton
Als, a columnist for the New
Yorker who muses on the colors of language and introduces, with
Moore, one of "America's most pictorial female authors."
The accompanying publication to the wordsearch project will be available from bookshops in 2003. (20 Euro, ISBN 3000100539)
