ALUAN – EXHIBITION ON PAPER.

ALUAN is an exhibition space in the shape of a magazine.

Each issue of this exhibition on paper is produced by a guest curator who explores a different art scene, defines a topic, and selects artists and artworks for display. It is a sequence of images, accompanied by a text that can be read as a guided tour. Central Asia has only a few art institutions and publications that provide accessible information and critical content about contemporary art. ALUAN is two things in one: exhibition space and a publication with an approach valid both inside and outside Kazakhstan.  Published in three languages (Kazakh, Russian, English) and becomes an alternative way of making exhibitions.


The magazine is founded by Gaisha Madanova in 2014. The first issue of ALUAN magazine was produced with the financial support of Goethe-Institut Kazakhstan in the framework of the regional project BRAIN MAP in the countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

The first issue (ART) UPSIDE DOWN is curated by Berlin-based art critic and curator Thibaut de Ruyter who focuses on the art scene of Almaty (the former capital of Kazakhstan) proposing a historical position, an archive about the city and artworks that deal with identity and mapping.
