KATALOG Journal is a Denmark-based journal focusing on photography and video.
Issue 29.1 focuses on Parallel – a new European photo-based platform. KATALOG turns the spotlight on the ideas of six emerging curators in the work of forming group exhibitions. Instead of solo pages with so-called ‘artist statements’, KATALOG features the works of the involved Parallel artists in a dialogue that reflects the introductory text. The pictures and their often surprising combinations detached from series and totalities should inspire the reader to investigate the individual artists more.
