Ginger & Piss 4 – The Intern

Kunstverein’s in-house magazine is a cross between an academic journal and a darts club newsletter. Each issue ​of ‘Ginger&Piss’ (the name is a misquotation of Lawrence Weiner) contains a limited amount of contributions that vary in length according to the subject matter at hand. The remit of ‘Ginger&Piss​’ is simple: to provide a platform for candid critique but at the same time allow the author to stay hidden. Therefore, the concept dictates that each contributor writes under a pseudonym. The use of pseudonyms can be considered an answer to the cowardice of the art world, albeit a somewhat hypocritical one. ‘The Intern’ is both the theme and mastermind behind the fourth issue of ‘Ginger&Piss’. In handing the reins over to Kunstverein’s own interns to guest edit the issue, ‘Ginger&Piss #4’ explores the politics of labour within the field and gives voice to the behind-the-scenes workers that make it all happen.
