Contributors Inc. (Phoebe Stubbs and Mimi Cabell) is a collective that works with art and culture magazines as material, engaging them as both archives of the art world and sites highlighting shifting commercial and political trends. Contributors Inc. creates interventions, publishing projects, artwork, and workshops exploring the relationship between a publication’s history and its present.

For this workshop, participants will critically engage with several magazines of art and design. Looking at evidence in their pages and on the internet, we will examine content, contributors, structure, and funding and annotate what we find. We will then discuss our findings as a group, including issues raised by the exercise and thoughts on the relevance of such publications to participants’ practices.
