Modern Matter 12 – Colour Model
Modern Matter 12 – Colour Model, is about the way that a full and varied spectrum bands together to make a single fully-unified whole. We mean this literally, and also as a metaphor. Playing with the theme of CMYK colour, the issue looks at global contributions to creativity and style, and the ways in which we work better together — and in full technicolour. Modern Matter 12 is the biggest, brightest edition to date. Featuring Walead Beshty, Alex Da Corte, Mark Leckey, Seth Price, Beatrix Ruf, Amalia Ulman, and more.
Modern Matter is a biannual publication that records the ways in which new and developing technology affects culture, lifestyle, fashion, and the arts. Described by the Serpentine’s Hans Ulrich Obrist as “the best magazine in London”, and by Magma’s Marc Valli as “porn for a magazine editor”, Modern Matter is unique in its approach to blending the best of British and international journalism and long-form writing with a fine-art sensibility and a high-fashion aesthetic; more than a magazine for documenting trends, it is a publication which ignores the zeitgeist in favour of something more distinctive and eclectic, hoping to redefine for the reader what it means for an idea to truly be “modern”.
