Modern Matter is a contemporary art & culture biannual from the United Kingdom.
Inspired by the total integration of modern media, Modern Matter's latest issue, About Now, looks at the juxtapositions created by this information overload: of smart and dumb, new and old, silly and serious, and analogue and digital. In an age in which everything has virality, issue 10 — traditionally a bumper anniversary edition for magazines — documents a new preoccupation with volume as virtue.
This issue features: The Hanzine, a collaboration with Hans Ulrich Obrist, photographed for the issue by Juergen Teller; George Condo at Spruth Magers, l.A.; A conversation between Gillian Wearing and Michael Landy; Liam Gillick and Rachel Rose discuss now and then; Helmut Lang dismantles the fabric of art with Neville Wakefield; Works by On Kawara, Hanne Darboven and Martin Creed in a discussion of numbers in art; Visual essays from Ellsworth Kelly and Guy Bourdin; Plus, a special art supplement Olu Odukoya: Pencil on Paper, beginning the first in a series of original photographic artists' books from modern matter books, & more!
