Year Title


Unknown Quantities is an annual serial project from MA Culture, Criticism and Curation and MA Graphic Communication Design. The potential of UQ as a creative experiment lies in its non-hierarchical approach to the relationship between design and intellectually driven approaches to publication. The content is a productive crossover between art and design, cultural criticism and politics. UQ aims to be rigorously eclectic but not antiquarian; visually experimental while practically communicative; politically urgent though not expedient.

UQ is print-led with an awareness of the potential of other platforms. The website draws on UQ’s publication history, drawing connections between print issues while also highlighting their experimental nature.
