Eikon


Trying to figure out if this magazine is published in English as well.

All this is the fruit of a rather pessimistic observation that in the affected contemplation of itself, contemporary art has reached the point of mere phantasmagorical, empty self-reference - a theatre of images that are the offspring of blind, narcissistic fascination*.

The quote is a great assessment - is it a translation from this magazine?

Yes, it is from here. It appears to be their English translation of an editorial from the first issue. I would like to see the whole magazine translated.
