textur was founded by curator Sarie Nijboer and art writer Julianne Cordray in 2018. The bi-color publication is intended as a format that mixes different forms of art and text, comprising artistic interventions  opinions, personal stories, experiences and experiments.

textur refers to underlying structures that are palpable, though not necessarily visible. With this magazine, we aim to discover unconventional ways of writing about and engaging with art and to explore the (hidden) patterns, textures and languages of the current art ecosystem.

textur has participated in book fairs including Indiecon in Hamburg, It’s a book in Leipzig, and Printing Plant in Amsterdam, and has been sold at Positions Berlin Art Fair, as well. Issues 2 & 3 have been stocked in bookshops in Berlin, including Do You Read Me?!, Pro qm and Zabriskie Buchladen, as well as at O Meteoritis in Athens.
