grapefruits is a fanzine on female* composers and soundartists, originating from students of the master programme Klang und Realität at Institute for Music and Media at RSH Düsseldorf. The title refers to grapefruit, a book by Yoko Ono from 1964, who saw grapefruits as a hybrid of lemons and oranges, a metaphor for her own identity — always being in-between. Appearing twice a year, the first issue was printed and released in summer 2019. The authors, varying from issue to issue, choose the artists they are going to interview and write about by personal interest, always having in mind different genres in the art and pop context as well as a broad international spectrum, including contemporary artists as well as early pioneers. For each issue the authors define a topic which combines the diverse characters, in the same time emphasizing the different understanding each one has on that specific topic.
