Established in Milan in 2006, Mousse Magazine
traces the currents of contemporary culture through feature articles, interviews, and conversations among the most vivid voices in international criticism, along with emerging talents and key figures in the cultural debate. With its reinforced emphasis on textuality and critical thinking, Mousse is more a book than a magazine and a key touchstone for academics, artists, curators, and collectors.
Alongside Mousse’s surveys, monographs, thematic essays, short profiles, fiction and book reviews, the restyled format of Issue #84 inaugurated four new columns: CRITICISM
, an arena to inspire discourse and encourage conversation around the current terms of art criticism, each year, an appointed editor invites a range of contributors to address an overarching concern; THINKERS
, devoted to influential thinkers who are shaping cultural discourse and theory; CURATORS
, a space for affiliated and independent organizers to openly define their approaches to contemporary exhibition-making; and REPRINT
, reviving and recirculating foundational texts that are no longer readily available.
Published quarterly, Mousse has broad distribution in Europe, the United States, Australia, and Asia. With its complete archive in a fully browsable format and completely searchable text, Mousse is now digitally available for experts, collectors, libraries and art colleges internationally.
