The Modernist, Issue 50: North

Tax included.
The ‘north’ is subjective.

The Modernist is produced out of Manchester and, as such, they consider themselves to be northerners. However, to their Scottish cousins this is nonsense: to them they are mere soft, southern Jessies. As such, perhaps it’s best not to get too hung-up on geographical perceptions of what is or isn’t northern, and instead settle upon the maxim that ‘the north’ is a feeling.

In this issue of The Modernist the reader travels the globe, largely within the northern hemisphere. Scotland features heavily, with articles about locally-based artists Eduardo Paolozzi and Charles Anderson, the textile designer Bernat Klein, the tower-blocks of Aberdeen, and models of the North Sea oil rigs.

Further afield, Phil Griffin takes the reader to one of the world’s most northerly inhabited places on earth, Barrow in Alaska, whilst Mantra Mukim couldn’t be much further away, climate-wise, with his look at the planned suburbs of Delhi, India.

The Modernist's team also couldn’t avoid an article about their hometown, in which David Dunnico uses a famous photograph of Coronation Street character Ena Sharples to tell a story of post-war urban redevelopment and social housing that was played out in towns and cities all across the country.

As an (in)famous Salfordian once said: HIT THE NORTH!
