ATC info

dear traders

here is another show of Artist Trading Cards:

Artist Trading Cards (ATC) in der Galerie Einhorn Schaffhausen

Michael Heisch und M. Vänçi Stirnemann stellen in der Galerie Einhorn eine Auswahl an Artist Trading Cards (ATC) aus. Das längst zum Label gewordene,
1996 von M. Vänçi Stirnemann ins Leben gerufene Kunstprojekt ATC basiert auf formalen Restriktionen bei gleichzeitiger völliger gestalterischer Freiheit.
Die aktuelle Ausstellung, in der frei zusammengefügte Szenen aus möglichen Comics zu sehen sind, ist eine Hommage an das Konzept des OuBaPo (Ouvroir de Bande dessinée potentielle), entstanden in Anlehnung an OuLiPo, das 1960 von Raymond Queneau und François Le Lionnais ins Leben gerufene Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle. Eine Handvoll Unikate also, mit illustrer konzeptueller Ahnengalerie.

Seit 1995 arbeiten die beiden Multimedia-Künstler Michael Heisch und M.
Vänçi Stirnemann regelmässig in verschiedenen Projekten zusammen. Bereits
2001 wurde eine Auswahl ihrer ATCs in der open-air Galerie Einhorn ausgestellt.

Von 1. bis 31. Mai 2008, täglich 0 bis 24 Uhr, Galerie Einhorn (Fronwagplatz 8), Schaffhausen.

Because I know some people don't want to order online I will see how I can help there. When I order the books myself and send them out, postage is paid twice. Cheapest way is to order straight from LuLu. But when I have stock here in Breda I can determine how heavy a package is and what the extra postage is. Next month I will give the details.
