Intro

 

With a longing gaze mankind is looking to the horizon.

 

A place of hope, the destination of the pursuit of happiness, the unexplored frontier, a symbol for the unknown, calculable but not existent, a non-place, located in a utopia, unreachable yet so close. With each step the horizon moves ahead, always with us, always away from us. The horizon is the last limitation, it forms the threshold between the visible and the invisible, reality and fantasy, between immanence and transcendence. It is the purview of the individual reality of every human being where nothingness lies across. We're not able to look behind the curtain which covers the world beyond our world. But if we change our prospect transcending the horizon becomes possible.

 

AM—XX is the attempt to trespass the limiting sphere and to observe the unobservable.

 

 

About

 

AM–XX Horizont is an award-winning Magazine-project that has been released on the 22nd of May 2015.

 

Research, editorial and design of AM—XX was realised by Benedikt Eisenhardt and Magnus Wiedenmann.

 

It is the 20th issue of the Akademische Mitteilungen project founded 1996 by Prof. Hans-Georg Pospischil at the State Academy of Arts and Design Stuttgart.

Editorial by Jürgen Werner

 

The horizon is a place where the mathematical and the metaphysical, the phenomenological and the philosophical coalesce. At that point where the earth appears to merge with the sky, on the border that roams and that can never be reached, in that place that can be so crucial for survival – always withdrawing as it is approached – certainty and uncertainty intertwine. Our fascination with the horizon, which inspires countless visual charges, arises from an excess of meaning that is linked to the impossibility of arriving at a clear determination that would correspond to a distinct separation by an obvious line in the distance. The sky separates itself from the landscape in a manner that is just as exact as that place is intangible.
