A Broadcast in collaboration with: Eva Egermann

On the occasion of the publication of the 2nd Edition of the Crip Magazine Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen hosted the Crip Magazine Convention at the Innsbruck Kunstpavillon of Tiroler Künstler:innenschaft, within the framework of the exhibition Looking at the Present through Rear-View Mirrors on Friday, 2 June, and Saturday, 3 June 2017. The two-day event, organized by this year’s Fellow of Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, Eva Egermann, addressed the relevance of alternative portrayals of illness and disability in art, youth culture and the everyday world, and inquired into representations and a visual culture of crip subjects.

Crip Magazine is a self-published magazine, and a collection of materials on crip issues, art and cultural production, and representations opposing the conditions of normality / abnormality. The contributions are dedicated to crip pop culture, art and radical social movements, deal with the issue of pain, or open up a transformative perspective on body issues and physical social relationships. A change of perspective permits alternative interpretations, image productions and encodings.

In the July edition of Büchs’n’Radio we broadcast the recording of the launch of the Crip Magazine #2. Presentations are held by the artist and editor Eva Egermann, and the contributors Doris Arztmann, Sabian Baumann, Elisabeth Magdlener and Volker Schönwiese.
