Editorial Focus

Matter is a monthly online journal of political poetry and commentary established with the intention of breaking down structural antimonies between labor and capital, and aesthetics and politics. In this “post-everything” (including history, identity, and narrative) age, critical and creative employment of language as a tool for (re)signification is crucial to avoid becoming, or remaining, passive – and silent – witnesses to spectacle culture, technocracy, and the corporate state.
