We are a hybrid magazine investigating SOCIAL anxieties in the discourse between arts, politics and life

An artist magazine created by David Liver as mean of dialogue (and crash-test) with the Council Of Europe at the end of 2020. The project started out of an ongoing conversation with artist Jimmie Durham. Our first goal was to move the lines between the audiences, and put to the test an art based political thinking within a diplomatic political environment.

With its editorial board based in France, Belgium and Italy, Voice Over is a multi-sited magazine fostering the more diversified perspective on a broad series of social and cultural timely subjects.

Voice Over aims to elaborate an alternative type of critical information based on a hybrid and cross border field of expertise, point of view and target. We do so by experimenting with and adapting to different ecosystems such as political institutions, museums, international art events, and schools.

Voice Over’s open access format encourages the sharing of knowledge production, disassociating it from the traditional academic elites and the codified boundaries of the art world.

Voice Over is an Urubu Films’ & Strasburg Pennsylvania publishing made in partnership with a series of renewed institutions. These collaborations are made possible upon the principle of independence of the publisher and the magazine’s director. Turning institutions into soft foundations is our primary endeavor, we do it by respecting authorship, playing contrasts, cultivating fragile discourses and by breaking and rolling in the representatives’ offices.
