Modern Matter 13 – The Anti Issue (Autumn/Winter 2017)
Modern Matter 13 – The Anti Issue: 2017 was a year of chaos, content overload, anti-establishment moves, counterculture, ugliness-as-sexiness, anti-fashion fashion, subversion, re-thinking, re-framing, re-working, and re-imagining. This is Modern Matter’s chaotic, content imagined Autumn/Winter 2017 edition. Welcome to The Anti Issue.
The issue includes features and collaborations with Rita Ackermann, Gabriel Kuri, David Altmejd, Jonathan Meese, Thomas Ruff, and the MoMA’s Paola Antonelli. (400 pages)
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”.
