Peeping Tom: The Newest in French Publishing

In art|BOOK on December 17, 2009 at 10:48 pm

As a result of being sick of the run of the mill content of French art magazines, former editors Stéphane Blanc and Caroline Niémant created Peeping Tom, a unique look at art today.

The magazine aims to challenge and engage its reader, bringing to attention new and unheard of artists.  Through experience, Blanc and Niémant became bored of the repetitive nature of artists names throughout magazines, and have utilised their publication to change this.

The main inspirations for Peeping Tom are scientology and paranormal activity. Charley, by Maurizio Cattelan was also a catalyst for the two creators.

Future aspirations for the magazine are to open a bookstore in Paris that highlights independent publishers. Also, Blanc and Niémant want to publish a selection of books by artists in the year 2010.

However, for now the next issue of Peeping Tom will be focusing on Mexico and the magazine is planned to be published annually.
