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 British and international journalism and long-form writing with a fine-art sensibility and a high-fashion aesthetic; more than a magazine for documenting trends, it is a publication which ignores the zeitgeist in favour of something more distinctive and eclectic, hoping to redefine for the reader what it means for an idea to truly be “modern”.

Modern Matter draws its inspiration from both a new-media style of internet modernity, and from the careful analogue format of the artist’s book, creating a radically new publication from the point where the two converge.
