READ ISSUE 09 IN PRINT

THE SEEN Issue 09 in print is now live online. The cover of Issue 09 features a detail of an installation by Danish artist Stine Deja in collaboration with Marie Munk, entitled Synthetic Seduction (2019). The work explores how technology strives to bridge the gulf of the uncanny valley (the notion that humanoid objects that appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings) to make personal devices as life-like as possible.

With Staff Writers reporting from around the world, each issue of THE SEEN features in-depth writing on contemporary art, as well as highlight essays, artist profiles, reviews, and limited-edition inserts from top international artists.

THE SEEN expanded the global reach of the publication as the only Chicago-based exclusive contemporary art criticism journal now to be distributed in museums across Europe and the United States.
