An artist-run space is a gallery space run by artists, thus circumventing the structures of public and private galleries. Artist-run spaces have become realised as an important factor in urban regeneration. This effect was particularly strong in Glasgow, where the city won the accolade 'European Capital of Culture' in 1990, largely due to the large number of artist-run exhibition spaces and galleries.[1] Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist coined the term "The Glasgow Miracle" to describe this.

3137 is happy to invite you to the launch of the fanzine KYPSELI on Friday, April 5.

KYPSELI is an independent publication initiated by a company of creators who live in or care for the neighborhood of Kypseli. It will come out every two months. Following the tradition of fanzines, the publication will consist of black and white photocopies on low gram paper so that the production cost is kept low budget and its independent character is secured. The word “kypseli” (literally meaning beehive) doesn’t refer solely to a certain neighborhood in Athens. It also applies to a structure and an attitude, it’s a cue, a call to reclaim the city center and participate equally in its polymorphous and complex life.

The first issue comes out on April 26. You can find it at selected book stores and record stores in the city of Athens. You can also find it at 3 137 the night of April 5. The launch will include original performances and readings curated by the participants of the fanzine.
