Somewhere between the defiant world of underground zines and the mindlessness of mass-marketed magazines there is another, quite unique, genre: independent pop culture magazines. These are the publications that create an intersection for art, music, fashion, design and youth culture and Inside Magazines provides an inside view of a select number that have successfully overcome the constraints of mainstream publishing.
Independent pop culture magazines do not attempt to impose homogeneity of taste, opinion and fashion through high circulations and massive advertising revenues. These are the magazines that make the ordinary extraordinary and give voice to difference. Titles featured include Adbusters, Vancouver; Bibel, Stockholm; Butt, Amsterdam; Mall Punk, Los Angeles; Index, New York; Lab, London; and more.
