In October 2009 I informed you about the second edition, called “Gaffa-Urbanism”, of the urban magazine Spacemag by Hamburg based Spacedepartment. Now, the release date is fixed and I was able to cast an eye at the new edition!
As you can read in the title, the whole issue is about the new “Gaffa-Urbanism” movement. For that reason, pacemag #2 includes articles about Japanese tape artist Shuetsu Sato, who tapes redirecting hints at the subway-stations in Tokyo and about Australian tape artist BUFFdiss, who is a real globetrotter and tapes great artworks in the urban landscape.
Furthermore there are articles about illegal exhibitions, subversive acquisition of urban environment, crazy example of what you can fix with gaffa, and a lot of more facts, photos and reportages!
All in all, the 130 pages “Gaffa-Urbanism” seems to be a great magazine about urban phenomena, urban trends and subversive art. It’s too bad that the mag is only available in German…
This Friday, the release-party, including live gaffering, will take place at the Art Lawyer Gallery in Hamburg. For more info, visit spacedepartment.de.
