Afterall, a journal of art, context and enquiry.  Afterall offers in-depth analysis of artists’ work, along with essays that broaden the context in which to understand it.

“Afterall is a research and publishing organisation based in London. Founded in 1998 by Charles Esche and Mark Lewis at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London, Afterall focuses on contemporary art and its relation to a wider artistic, theoretical and social context.

In 1999 Afterall, a journal of art, context and enquiry, was launched. Afterall offers in-depth analysis of artists’ work, along with essays that broaden the context in which to understand it. This year the journal celebrates its 10th anniversary and as part of our celebration we have made the back catalogue of Afterall freely available to all. The journal was co-published with California Institute of the Arts from 2002 to 2009 and is currently published in association with MuHKA, Antwerp and UNIA arte y pensamiento, Seville.

In April 2006 we introduced Afterall Books and launched two new strands of publications to complement the journal: One Work and a series of Afterall readers. One Work is a library of small books, each title focusing on one important work of contemporary art through a single text. Afterall readers look at significant areas of modern and contemporary art practice through the commissioning and reprinting of a collection of key texts, artists’ statements and manifestos. A new series, titled Exhibition Histories, will be launched in 2010 in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven.

Afterall Online continues the lines of enquiry explored through the journal and the books. It features specially commissioned and regularly updated material including interviews with artists about their art practice, photo-essays and texts on artist’s projects, books and events.

Afterall also organises events including screenings, workshops, seminars and conferences in relation to its different research and publication projects, in London and elsewhere. Among these, we present a series of seminars with The Showroom.”
