A Survey of Magazines

Non-Breaking Space

July 12th—August 29th, 2018

Magazines, by their very nature, are a catalyst to amplify a message, frame a conversation, and create awareness. “Print is not a mouthpiece for consumerism anymore, it’s an invaluable tool for revolt,” writes Bertie Brandes, co-founder of Mushpit Magazine.

Lining these walls you’ll find a small survey of magazines (some defunct, others thriving) that embody this very idea. Some choose not to be beholden to advertisers, allowing their pages to remain radical. Many showcase unlikely contributors and turn their focus to subversive topics.

The survey includes magazines art directed or created by Herb Lubalin, General Idea, Tibor Kalman, Joshua Berger, Niko Courtelis, Shaz Madani, Clay Hickson, Liana Jegers, and countless contributors.
