Madness/ Tales of Ordinary Madness
organized, initiated, directed, structured, arranged by Hans Könings - a Dutchman in Berlin.
In 2013 Hans Könings asked and enthusiated nine appreciated artist friends, working in different media, about the participation in his concept and the production of an artist´s magazine – RUW!
Limited graphzines, graphic artist's books and magazines are usually published in small and very small editions and produced as serigraphs or photocopied »do-it-yourself«-productions which are distributed via personal insider channels. This is also the case for RUW which is planned to be continued.
RUW! is the combination of the word »raw«, as in the American magazine »RAW«, founded in the 80's by Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly and the German word »rau«, pronounced as the Dutch word »ruw«. Hans Könings: »we're all living in berlin, the magazine is primitiv and times are rough but great and I want to emphasize madness as the madness in Tales of Ordinary Madness by Charles Bukowski. RUW! sounds great, looks good and tastes like gasoline!«
