The Machine Factory – Victor B. Andersen: Sperme Anonyme
First and foremost, Victor B. Andersen’s Machine Factory is a Danish legendary art magazine, an art book that has been published since 1975 by the main editor and Danish artist Kenn André Stilling. The fundamentals have always been: Black/white, A4-format, at least 160 pages and photocopies of material in such a way that the personal styles of poets, writers and artists are reflected directly and visually in the art magazine.
But the Machine Factory is more than “just” an art magazine. Danes, and people living in Copenhagen, knows very well the Café ”Sommersko” (Summer shoe), Café Dan Turèll, Café Victor – perhaps without being aware of the fact that, all of them, are results of the Machine Factory’s strategy – and all of them were invented to bring the magazine into real life.
