artists & participants
The Parkett magazine was founded in Zurich in 1984 by a group of friends, with the idea of generating an open exchange between artists and writers on art in Europe and the United States. With this in mind, Parkett opened offices in Zurich and New York and articles have always been published in both German and English. From the start the magazine did not restrict its activity to writing about artists but entered into close collaboration with them. Not only is the work of leading international artists analysed in essays by writers and critics, but artists are also invited to participate in editorial work by choosing writers as well as collaborating in cover and spine designs for each individual edition. Each artist also creates a work of art, specially produced for Parkett in limited edition, signed and numbered, offered for purchase to the magazine's subscribers. These works have covered a wide range of media including magazine inserts, painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, video, DVDs and sound.
In 2009, the University of Castilla- La Mancha received the donation—from Helga de Alvear—of all numbers of the journal and its artists' editions published since 1984. In order to ensure its conservation and future dissemination, the Parkett collection has been given a permanent home at the Fine Arts Faculty, Cuenca.
