“Ausgabe# is released since 2011 as a personal magazine of the artist. Each of the issues is a one-off, including various graphical elements like prints, photographs, copies or text fragments, which document the artists work process. These elements build up an increasing inventory of forms that can be used as a vocabulary for the following issues. Thereby Ausgabe# becomes a visual memory and field of experimentation, which aim is to order, connect and recombine ideas and thoughts. Besides it shows plenty of links to the sculptures and objects by the artist and gives an intimate view on the process of thought and work of Max Leiß.                              

Since 2013, Ausgabe# continues as a cooperative process between its initiator and invited guests. Each issue will contain contributions by various artists, as well as portraits and interviews. Thus, Ausgabe# opens a dialogue that takes place on a visual, sensitive and textual level.”  (T. Geiger)
