Modern Matter is a contemporary art & culture biannual from the United Kingdom.
In this issue: Modern Matter presents a showcase of the art of remastering, rendered in print, so that analogue processes are given a digital sheen, and old-school artists are given a new-school vibe. Franz West is re-printed in his favourite colour, hot pink; Paul Chan weaves new publishing and politics out of a rich experimental literary history; Daniel Richter remixes two archive issues of Modern Matter; Arthur Jafa reconfigures Whitney Houston as not just an icon, but a saintly ghost; Cajsa Von Ziepel reworks human bodies, so that male and female forms combine; Christian Jankowski re-appropriates art world frivolity to make art; Nick Knight introduces, or re-introduces, liberal skinhead brutalism into fashion, and more! All this wrapped up in a mock VHS slip case.
