Anne Massey: new article for Modern Matter

in collaboration with Lucy Bayley

Prof Anne Massey and Lucy Bayley (PhD candidate) contributed to the 7th issue of Modern Matter magazine with a piece on the ICA Bulletin since 1949.
About Modern Matter:

The printed magazine is an art form which is often described as a dying medium; its continued existence has been a subject of media debate in the post-net age, and in art publishing (as in all of its genres) magazines have been forced to evolve. Modern Matter aims to solve this problem – the problem of why magazines still exist – by attempting to use the magazine space as a forum for truly bespoke art content, in a manner which is both tactile, and inventive.

Modern Matter's perspective – its central thesis – is treating the very presentation of the arts as an art-form in and of itself. From an experimental approach to design, to non-linear values in the field of editorial content, Modern Matter is a unisex publication which aims to examine exactly what can be achieved in the field of printed matter: ultimately, its approach is to use the physical page in the same way that a curator or a gallerist might use a gallery space.

Previous contributors of original, creative material include Urs Fischer, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Beatrix Ruf, Rita Ackermann, Oscar Murillo, Luc Tuymans, and Juergen Teller.
