InterViews is an artist‘s zine created and produced by Ayumi Rahn, that focuses on the interview as a form of expression. Ayumi lives and works as an artist and writer in Berlin. Her interest lies in the disruptions and fractures within constellations, which manifest as ambiguity, oddity, the uncanny, and the paradoxical.
In InterViews, an ongoing series of art zines inspired by classically structured surveys, Ayumi explores various topics by dissecting them, pushing them in opposite directions, or transforming them entirely. All interviews are fictitious. Some follow a familiar format exploring recognizable inventions and studies, while others take the form of dialogues or soliloquies that often extend into the absurd.
On the foundation of the zine, InterViews serves as a platform for artistic collaboration and dialogue. Conceived as an ongoing art project, InterViews emerged from the need to create a venture that continuously invites artists to collaborate and engage in dialogues. Collaborative thoughts and research on specific topics are transformed into the production of each issue. The production process evolves into an artistic collaboration and dialogue that is showcased, exhibited, and performed within and in association with each issue. This includes exhibitions, readings, performances, and more.
Each issue is limited to a numbered edition of fifty, twenty pages each, using inkjet print and risoprint on colored paper.
