Modern Matter Issue 17 – Is Anyone Normal Out There?

by Modern Matter


“Is anyone normal out there?”. What “normal” mean is, of course, subjective – for a person still interested in pushing and redefining the boundaries of what arts and culture look like circa 2020, it does not necessarily mean someone who upholds the status quo. Issue #17 of Modern Matter is interested in exploring individuals and artists who have created a body of work – or a general attitude – that is designed to reflect what they stand for, as well as to inspire others to stand up for their own ideals, too. 

With contributions by:
Larry Clark
Rayond Pettibon
Torey Thornton
Albert Oehlen
Paulina Olowska
Hans Ulrich Obrist
Zu Zhen

Modern Matter Issue #17 comes with a large format supplement "Art Interlude - Rayond Pettibon and Larry Clark"


About Modern Matter magazine
A groundbreaking biannual publication that merges the sometimes-chaotic approach to style and content found online with the careful consideration for production and the written word that has always characterised the very best print journals, Modern Matter is unlike any other magazine on the market. Named in honour of its focus on the now, as well as on the facets of art, style, design and culture that most matter to the team behind the magazine, it brings the personal into a sphere that’s typically commercial.
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 long-form culture writing with a fine-art sensibility and a high-fashion aesthetic. It is released biannually, and distributed internationally.
