Gagarin's final issue, featuring original texts by James Welling, Yuki Okumura, Kapwani Kiwanga, Fabio Zimbres, João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva, Kasper Bosmans, Eric Baudelaire, Ieva Miseviciute.
Gagarin is published twice a year since the millennium year 2000 and is entirely dedicated to the publication of especially written & unpublished texts by artists who are now working, anywhere in the world. It documents the first decade(s) of this century in artists' writings. Its object is primarily artistic, but also to provide an accurate source of information for research about contemporary artists using their own words. Gagarin is aimed at those who do not tend to wait until everything is accepted and synthesized and those who are prepared to leave the road to search for stimulating art and ideas while they are still fresh.
Each issue contains a number of artists' writings, if possible from an equal number of countries. The texts are published in their original language and alphabetical writing, with unabridged translations in English added. Advertising and visual material are deliberately kept out. In collaboration with the Research Centre for Artists' Publications / Archive for small Press & Communication (ASPC) at the Neues Museum Weserburg in Bremen (Germany), Gagarin features a supplementary Index of Artists' Writings published world wide. Gagarin is indexed in ArtBibliography Modern ABM by Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Oxford, UK.
