Visual Artbeat was a contemporary magazine published between the years of 2008 – 2015.

The magazine was founded by Sebnem B. Holzer who also continued to work as the editor-in-chief throughout the years.

In the first two years of publication, Visual Artbeat was a limited edition catalogue style art magazine for European and Middle Eastern art collectors and art enthusiasts and was distributed free of charge.

By the 6th Issue in 2011, Visual Artbeat became an independent, commercial publication located in Salzburg, Austria. The circulation remained the same, max. 1500 hard copies, printed triannualy as 68 pages in full-color and distrubuted worlwide. Distribution portfolio comprised of ~ %70 Europe , %30 America and Middle East by the end of 2012.

By the 7th Issue in September 2011, Visual Artbeat started to feature “New Collections“ section. In February 2013, Visual Artbeat engineered a style overhaul of the magazine. Among other changes, the magazine changed its logo and raised the number of featured articles.

In June 2013, Visual Artbeat became an online-only publication, an Ezine with free access to all content. As a dynamic source for international contemporary art news it was updated about once a week and featured the work of invited artists and the articles/essays of emerging authors.

In June 2015, Visual Artbeat became an online non-commercial magazine. In the following months, the editor team have decided to close down the magazine after 7 years in publication. Visual Artbeat is no longer active although its published content over the years is still available for people on the website and will continue to be so.

We’d like to thank all our readers and advertisers for their continues support over the years.
