MM15 REMASTERED — Issue 15




1.make a new master of, typically in order to improve the quality.

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, born in 1947, 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 this very magazine, and 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, and Christian Jankowski re-appropriates art world frivolity to make art. Nick Knight introduces, or re-introduces, liberal skinhead brutalism into fashion. Replay: pause: stop: rewind. Then start all over again.

Also featuring : Tim Gutt & Shona Heath, Barbara Pobst, Marc Aseksame.
