L.Fritz #2: This monothematic issue is all about archives, collections and found-footage, and it introduces artists who no longer produce their own photographs, but who have made it their task to view, evaluate, contextualize and edit the already existing visual material - true to Joachim Schmid's motto "No new photographs until the old ones are used up". 

L.Fritz #1: L. Fritz is the bilingual magazine of the Photoszene. He is an echo sounder and ambassador, serious and exciting, entertaining and challenging. L. Fritz addresses curators, gallery owners and publishers, students and collectors, photographers and designers, professionals and amateurs alike. That is why L. Fritz is more than just a medium - he is a living part of the photography scene, he is a friend and expert whom you trust, whom you can ask for advice and whom you like to have at your side.
