Article - The Broken Issue Vol 3 Issue 1
Art, Culture, Urbanism
Article is a quarterly magazine about culture. It has its roots in the north of England which the Article team use as a starting point for exploring art, architecture, culture, design, music and town planning.
Features in this issue include an amazing photo essay by Edmund Clark commemorating scenes from the Falklands war. There’s an in depth interview with artist Jeremy Hutchinson about his project Err, which saw factory workers around the world asked to produce a one-off deliberately faulty product. Also, Bill Drummond – artist, writer and musician – gives an interview in which he talks about degeneration, conceptual compositions and rationing music. This interview is the first of 25 he has agreed to give for the rest of his life. Article look at Wasteland Twinning, an international art project that turns city twinning on its head by looking at wasted spaces. Empty, abandoned, city centres are examined, and we see who’s to blame for the disappearance of so many shops.
Also in the issue: The history of ruin porn, glitch art, broken journalism, failed civic identities and dispatches from across the north.
There’s also The Life Worth Living – reviews of the art and books, and new music features.
