Introducing: KRASS Journal
Posted on 12 January 2017
KRASS is an intellectually engaged publication; bold in content, targeted in scope and elegant in design. Artists, academics and activists come together in our pages. We converse with photographers, politicians and provocateurs – in the past, this has included the likes of Hans Ulrich Obrist, Etel Adnan and Audrey Wollen. We exhibit the strange, the subversive and the avant-garde, for those with a taste for these things. KRASS is for the defiant and the curious.
This is a period of great growth for KRASS. With premium international stockists (by way of example, the Museum of Contemporary Art LA, Family Books LA, McNally Jackson NY and Mag Nation Australia-wide) KRASS’ international presence is growing.
KRASS was nominated for a Stack Magazine award last month – in the company of such magazines as Gentlewoman (London), The Gourmand (London), Printed Pages (London) Parterre De Rois (Milan); the only Australian magazine in Cover of the Year selection. We expect that this issue will surpass our past projections. With a custom font by Frame Creative, and a striking new design, we believe that this is our strongest release yet.
