Dear Reader,

Ginger&Piss is Kunstverein’s in-house magazine — a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Ginger&Piss (the name a misquotation of Lawrence Weiner) is published twice yearly, with the first edition appearing in a short run. Each issue contains a maximum of five or six contributions of varying length, appropriate to the individual subject matter.

The remit of Ginger&Piss is simple: to offer an outlet for authors to say what they feel is vital (and not necessarily at all related to the art world) but were unable, unwilling or too afraid to publish previously. The concept dictates that each contributor writes under a pseudonym. We — the editors — guarantee full anonymity.

Loud is the subject of the first issue and it is a broad — probably far too broad — theme (if a them at all). In fact Quiet might have been more appropriate. But we at Ginger&Piss think a clear, ‘honest’ voice is better suggested by volume than whispering.
