The notorious contemporary art and culture magazine and foundation Frieze Publishing has launched a brand new publication. The publication, named frieze d/e is a bilingual German/English magazine, with its own separate Berlin based team and independent content. The magazine concentrates on the coverage of contemporary art and culture in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The publication provides a bold coverage of the German art world. Themes covered in the first issue of frieze d/e offer interesting questions and ideas, from the class difference in art to changes in Swiss art funding and censorship. The in-depth articles discuss work from inspiring artists such as Berlin-based artist Henrik Olensen. Olensen is a sculpturist whose work focuses in tearing down the clichés of gay identities as well as the constrained opposites often found in the society. Other interesting names covered in the first issue are Pamela Rosenkranz, Christian Mayer and Max Frisinger.
The editorial team of frieze d/e consists of the editor Jennifer Allen and the co-publishers Mareike Dittmer and Jörg Heiser. The magazine is managed by Magdalena Magiera.
