Brack is a platform for socially-engaged art. We believe an audience member’s pleasure is deeply tied to the opportunity to interpret the meaning and value of an arts event or arts object. 21st century audiences and its technologies engender a sense of ownership in cultural practices, whether science, politics, journalism, or the arts and creative expression. This post-analogue ethos is challenging twentieth-century notions of hierarchical mediation, in which experts interpret the art work and offer its meaning to a largely passive public.

This is exactly why Brack is interested in how socially engaged art engages with a community or society, and seeks to experiment in those very engagements—through the way we write, the way we work with artists, and the way we engage with audiences.

BrackMag is a compact publication that aims to bridge art, audience, and context, becoming a great resource and engagement for anyone – artists, researchers, community workers – interested in art and its social interrelationships.
