PASSE-AVANT is an online magazine for contemporary art located in Frankfurt Main, Germany. It was founded in 2016 to report on interesting formats that are in danger of being overlooked in the jungle of exhibitions and other cultural events happening in the Rhine-Main area. We write reviews on current exhibitions, announce shows before they happen and commission collaborations with young artists.

Made in a collaboration with Anne Büttner.

NOVA is a mobile space for contemporary art and a platform for current questions of artistic practice and its (re)presentation. In exhibitions as well as other experimental formats, NOVA is dedicated to the discourse around the arts. NOVA was founded in spring 2019 in collaboration with students of the Bauhaus University Weimar. It combines academic teaching with hands-on projects ranging from artistic to curatorial practice, exhibition management to architecture and communications – all within the context of a locally as well as globally oriented art field.

EULA (Fonts) in a nutshell

There are two different license types. One is for your personal computer, called Desktop license. The other license type is for your web application. A Desktop license comes with an OpenType file. OpenType, OTF, covers all font features and once it is installed, it'll work with all applications on your computer. A Web license allows you to use the @font-face feature on a website. It comes with EOT, TTF, WOFF, and WOFF2 file formats to support all modern browsers. Each web license comes with all the font files including a basic html and css file ready to use. Please read this if you haven't heard of @font-face.

It is called buying a typeface, but in fact, you are buying a license. Within this license you can install and use the font on a computer, or embed it inside a website. It is also restricted on the numbers of Computers, or visitors on a website. It is a one-time fee for each license, which means that once you bought it, it will be yours forever. The intellectual property still, and will ever be belonging to the designer himself.

The payment is processed trough Gumroad, a service that is offering the gateway between seller and buyer. If you are having a low budget, but want to use my typefaces, please send me an E-Mail with all details relating to the belonged project and we can work something out.
