Modern Matter / 20
MM20 — Issue 20
Is Tomorrow Better ? This issue is an anthology, a think tank within an object. Each story, each spread page; all are free to intertwine and co-exist. The reader is a participant in their own right, invited to turn a kaleidoscope of ideas, stories and journeys in any way they see fit. It’s a puzzle with no ‘correct’ answer. Same ideas, different configuration. Both the front and back cover are entrances into the 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. Produced in-house at OMO Creates.
