Global Perspectives on Visual Vocabulary


76 visual artists and art collectives from 50 countries:
PRŌTOCOLLUM 2016/17 is now available


The third issue of PRŌTOCOLLUM, an annually published anthology dedicated to non-Western contemporary visual artists, art narratives and art history, has been released by DICKERSBACH KUNSTVERLAG. PRŌTOCOLLUM’s issue for 2016/17 features contributions by 76 visual artists and art collectives from 50 countries across Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.

PRŌTOCOLLUM deliberately invites artists to decide independently about the contents of their contributions, without any interference or filtration, curatorial analysis or critical evaluation through editorial or art historical hierarchies. The artists’ contributions are presented to the journal’s readership in an unmediated way and based on the artists’ personal decisions and perspectives.

The weight given to the artists’ authorship on the pages of PRŌTOCOLLUM and the restrictions on editorial interventions are also expressed by the fact that the cover of PRŌTOCOLLUM does not depict any specific artworks and does not highlight any single artist, but instead lists all contributing artists to the respective issue of the journal as equally significant.

To further strengthen regional views and perspectives, PRŌTOCOLLUM 2016/17 continues to develop its concept of peer review, by inviting contributors of previous issues to recommend interesting artists from their regions. In the three issues published so far more than 230 artists and artist collectives from 94 countries have participated in PRŌTOCOLLUM. Being able to tap into the knowledge and expertise of this diverse community puts this journal in a unique position as a platform for non-Western contemporary visual art whose motto Global Perspectives on Visual Vocabulary epitomizes the intention to present a visual arts exhibition in the framework of an art journal, letting the visual flow rather than an alphabetical order determine the sequence of the artists’ contributions, undisturbed and uninterrupted by commercial ads or sponsored content that the journal strives to go without.

PRŌTOCOLLUM can be ordered online via www.protocollum.org and the publisher’s DICKERSBACH KUNSTVERLAG website www.dickersbach.net

Global Perspectives on Visual Vocabulary


92 visual artists and art collectives from 53 countries:
PRŌTOCOLLUM 2015/16 now available


Berlin-based DICKERSBACH KUNSTVERLAG presents the second issue of PRŌTOCOLLUM, an annually published artists’ journal dedicated to non-Western contemporary visual artists, art narratives and art history. Honouring its motto Global Perspectives on Visual Vocabulary, PRŌTOCOLLUM’s issue for 2015/16 features contributions by 92 visual artists and art collectives from 53 countries across Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.

PRŌTOCOLLUM dedicates itself to the participating artists’ thoughts, visions and ideas, and offers its readership an unfiltered and unmediated encounter with contemporary global artistic practice.

The artists independently select the content they would like to have published in their respective sections and are free to determine their contributions and the way in which they would like to communicate with the journal’s readers, including their language of preference.
PRŌTOCOLLUM does not want to reflect what art experts, critics and curators think. The concept follows a strict philosophy of artistic autonomy over editorial authority, with no adverts and no editorial or curatorial interference.

For 2015/16 PRŌTOCOLLUM has invited a selection of artists from the inaugural issue to propose contributors, thus ensuring that the perspectives of local art scenes are duly represented. Featuring visual artists, art collectives and artistic practices across a wide range of media on more than 350 pages, the journal’s 2nd issue once more provides unique access to truly global contemporary art production.

Global Perspectives on Visual Vocabulary


PRŌTOCOLLUM, the new and innovative artists' journal by DICKERSBACH KUNSTVERLAG, presents an international survey of contemporary non-Western artists, art narratives and art history. Honouring its motto 'Global Perspectives on Visual Vocabulary', PRŌTOCOLLUM's inaugural issue features contributions by 72 visual artists and art collectives from 54 countries across Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia. As an anthology of contemporary visual art PRŌTOCOLLUM will appear once a year.

PRŌTOCOLLUM re-defines the role of art magazines and art journals. Instead of dictating the journal's contents from an editorial perspective, the invited artists independently select the content they would like to be published and positioned in their respective sections of the journal.

PRŌTOCOLLUM does not want to reflect what art experts, critics and curators think, but rather to let the artists choose for themselves what they want to publish and how they want to communicate with the reader, in an unmitigated fashion.

PRŌTOCOLLUM aims to reflect the full diversity of global practice in contemporary visual art with a unique and fresh approach. The inaugural issue, the yearbook for 2014/2015, consists of 240 pages, no adverts, no curatorial self-fulfilment, only the contributing artists’ thoughts, visions and ideas, offering original and credible insights into art scenes around the world.

"WE LIKE BOOKS AND WE ARE ALSO MADLY IN LOVE WITH ART!"


"Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation." - Angela Y. Davis


Berlin based DICKERSBACH KUNSTVERLAG is a publishing house specialising in high quality books, monographs and artist catalogues by selected artists from countries outside of the traditional sphere of Western art history. It focuses on contemporary culture and pursues a goal of building communicative bridges between different cultures and artistic traditions. One of the publisher’s central themes is to address the Eurocentric and Western dominance in defining the criteria of which contemporary art is considered relevant. DICKERSBACH KUNSTVERLAG encourages publications that contribute new ideas and perspectives in contemporary culture and artistic expression, and provides a forum for the documentation of art history and artistic narratives from places of the world that are often ignored or marginalised by Western art institutions and art experts who nevertheless claim to present an international programme. The aim of this publishing platform is to reflect the full diversity of global artistic practice.
