They Printed It! focuses on invitations, press releases, and inserts made by artists. These apparently unimportant items are frequently overlooked and carelessly discarded. They are used for announcements and self-marketing, and are sometimes also artworks in their own right. As a space for experiments they enticingly promise to spread art almost unnoticed among the masses. Artists such as Maria Eichhorn, Louise Lawler, Martin Kippenberger, Pierre Leguillon, Jonathan Monk, Albert Oehlen, Michael Riedel, and Heimo Zobernig have systematically worked with this medium and made productive use of the contradictions on which it is based.
