Carrying on from the first issue of the magazine, with its focused on the question of critical forms and means available today, by way of writing in particular, the second issue of May develops the matter of other spaces, inviting the reader to "pursue [their] description" based on the contributions gathered there.
Editorial, p. 17
Conceived as a collective space in which to develop thoughts and confront positions on artistic production, May magazine examines, once a year, contemporary art practice and theory in direct engagement with the issues, contexts and strategies that construct these two fields. An approach that could be summed up as critique at work – or as critique actively performed in text and art forms alike.
Featuring essays, interviews, art works and reviews by artists, writers and diverse practitioners of the arts, the magazine also intends to address the economy of the production of knowledge – the starting point of this reflection being the space of indistinction between information and advertisment typical of our time. This implies a dialogue with forms of critique produced in other fields.
