Mobile Album International is an arts review designed as a mobile exhibition and reflection space for contemporary art and culture. The review welcomes critical and theoretical thought-pieces as expressed by artists and collectors. It is an international and interdisciplinary publication showcasing work by writers, artists, philosophers and organisers.
Mobile Album International is published in book-form, with a full-colour section featuring numerous reproductions that are best represented in full-page spreads, while a black-and-white printed section regroups most of the critical and theoretical writings.
* Album : noun (late 17th c., “list of friends” from Latin album amicorum, used by German scholars to designate a notebook containing autographs; mid-18th c. “travel notebook”; “blank tablet; list” from Latin album. 1. Notebook or personal file used to keep drawings, photos, multiple collections. 2. Printed collection of iconographic documents.
Making an album means creating a platform that is used as a mediating space between artists and theorists, between New York and Europe, between generations of artists, researchers, visual poets and contemporary art institutions and private collections. It is a platform used to share contemporary creation and the way it questions a world which cannot be reduced to only one trend or movement — as such, it is open to all intensities, actions and multiplications.
