IL GAZZETTINO

An Ode to the Kiosk.

  • Apr 21 2022 | 3:00 PM h - 9:00 PM h

Gazette (noun): official journal or newspaper. The term is a lean word that persists in numerous modern languages. It is from Italian gazzetta, which originally referred to a Venetian news-sheet first published in the 16th century.

As an uninvited and unofficial event on occasion of the 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, a small kiosk is transformed for one afternoon only, into a discursive platform for indie magazines and artist publications from around the world.

Located right between the two main exhibition venues - the Giardini and the Arsenale - the newsstand "Il Gazzettino“ on the lively Via Garibaldi becomes an informal meeting place to get together, discuss, exchange and connect.

The project, organized by Studio Lukas Feireiss & Friends, is a celebration of self-published printed matter and an ode to the urban typology of the kiosk as a democratic space for the dispensation of knowledge and information.
