Modern Matter Issue 18 It’s Time to Listen
Modern Matter 18 – It’s Time to Listen | We skipped 2020. It was a strange moment in time, and so we sought to respond to that. Not by hastening to produce as we have produced before, but by listening to this new rhythm. Modern Matter’s 18th Issue is an audio-visual time capsule, a reflective diary of the year that has passed us by, and that has underlined the need to listen, love and communicate.
We have taken the format of a magazine, but as a shell to encase something that steps beyond this, using it as a new way to communicate. Across 160 pages and an accompanying LP, the issue presents interviews and features with leading artists, including Formafantasma’s Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, Tom Burr, Rebecca Ackroyd and Alexandre da Cunha, and Chris Burden, among others. It includes a series of transcriptions of conversations from the lockdown, otherwise lost to time, including with Kerry James Marshall, Lynn Hershman Leeson and Vandana Shiva. Available for $40 USD online.
