ISSUE #05

FROM CENTER TO PERIPHERY



Long before Covid-19, many artists had begun moving from big cities to smaller towns because they were unable to afford the high cost of living in these urban centers. The pandemic made these metropolises even less attractive; the lack of space and risk of contamination, cancelation of events, and revenue losses increased the pressures on freelancers.

The periphery, however, had ceased to exist a long time ago. Creating in one place and selling in another is a common practice among creatives. The internet is instrumental in helping keep up with trends. Zoom meetings and shows have become indispensable; they are cheap, user-friendly, and reach new audiences.

A few weeks ago, Deichtorhallen, a major art institution in Hamburg, opened Tom Sachs's exhibition SPACE PROGRAM: RARE EARTHS with the addition of the staged interaction with the public next to physical exhibits. The current cover of SMCK Magazine features Sachs’s own landing on the Vesta asteroid, courtesy of Deichtorhallen.
