Like the Time Lord off of the telly, The Modernist magazine never dies, it takes on a new form, regenerates, gets some new companions and heads off on a thrilling new adventure.
After eight issues and two years, our resident designer, Jonathan Hitchen has passed on the propelling pencil to our new companions Daniel James and Jacob Critchley (of birthday and Rueville design respectively) working together as team ‘19.
team ‘19 have pushed and pulled, tweaked and stretched the magazine and yes, like BBC2 in 1967 we have gone colour. So, you’d better make sure you have a license.
Our editorial team has also transformed and is now working in collaboration with a team of guest editors who will each take one issue and lend the magazine their voice and their own take on the world of Modernism.
First up is Hannah Neate. Hannah is cultural and historical geographer with particular interests in geographies of art and architecture. Amongst other things, her research examines how special interest groups and broad publics experience, value, and campaign for post-war modernist architecture and this resulted in the publication Modern Futures.
So, put on your dust jacket, get out your library cards, open up your box files and delve into issue 29 - inventory.
