Journal of the Month: Shifter


The Journal of the month for December 2013 is new to the library’s collection. Shifter is a topical magazine that aims to illuminate and broaden our understanding of the intersections between contemporary art, politics and philosophy. The magazine remains malleable and responsive in its form and activities, and represents a diversity of positions and backgrounds in its contributors.

Shifter’s 21st issue, Other Spaces, considers the body as a site where architecture’s traditional polarities of private and public collapse. This polarity, mirrored in the distinctions we draw between individual and social freedoms and domestic and political action are challenged every day by spontaneous, collaborative re-imaginings of space. Moore faculty member Rit Premnath is a founding editor of the journal and in addition to receiving the most recent issue, the Library has also acquired all twenty back issues. Come by to see Rit’s work! (
