"A Prior Magazine publishes two regular issues a year in which the body of work of an artist is discussed at large by means of visual and textual contributions. With an extensive portfolio and texts by various authors from different fields a substantial publication is established – always in close collaboration with the artist – offering simultaneously two additional artists the possibility to set up an artist’s project accompanied by a newly commissioned text.
A Prior Magazine is in fact compiled in a similar way as an exhibition: a multi-sided offer including different viewpoints however with an eye for some degree of affinity. After the monographic and artistic contributions, the last section of A Prior Magazine, VISIONS, consists of a series of textual as well as visual columns comments on contemporary developments and discussions in the fields of art and visual culture."
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
