"The Sundance of magazine publishing"
Colophon was the world's biggest celebration of independent magazines, held over a weekend every two years in Luxembourg. More than 3,000 people from 25 countries attended in 2007 and 2009, participating in discussions, debates, workshops and making a 100-page magazine in less than 50 hours.
I co-curated all aspects of the organisation, including its promotion, development and expansion.
For each edition, we gave ten magazines their own gallery spaces to recreate their publication in three dimensions. From an English sitting room to a Greyscale Bar (only black drinks or white drinks) to a Dr Strangelove-style War Room, it was an energetic, fun, inspiring event. And then there were the parties.
Print isn't dead. It's just being re-imagined.
Co-curated with Mike Koedinger, Jeremy Leslie.
