Bomb

Bomb Magazine is a print quarterly publishing in-depth interviews between artists alongside artists' essays, literature, and portfolios. The magazine has been publishing conversations between artists of all disciplines since 1981. Bomb's founders—New York City based artists and writers—created the magazine because they saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way critics described it. Today, Bomb is a multimedia publishing house that creates, disseminates, and preserves artist-generated content from interviews to artists' essays to new literature.
