Bidoun Magazine going yearly

, 23 December 2013

Ramping up for an early start in activity by taking part in the Los Angeles Art Book Fair in January and another event built around Albert Cossery’s Laziness in the Fertile Valley with NYC publishing house New Directions, Middle Eastern project and publication Bidoun will be celebrating their 10th anniversary by digitising their archive, migrating mostly online and scaling back on the quarterly print publications to annual ones.

That’s not say they’re going anywhere, of course, with other publications like Dazed & Confused announcing they’ll be shrinking their print output in 2014 too because it just makes more sense. Bidoun probably just needs a little more help, which is why they’re calling out for contributions and support by joining the Friends of Bidoun community. Best do that and get those back issues while you still can. **
