It is as always a wild remix of the most contemporary processes from under-, parallel- and non-mainstream art scenes, this time with a focus on the diamond shaped connections spanning through NYC-LONDON-BERLIN-TOKYO.

Synchron is an independent magazine dedicated to showcasing a broad spectrum of contemporary art, literature, subcultural practices, especially those developed in antagonism with, or parallel to, larger commercial art markets. It is an experimental print publication and curatorial platform for exchange and collaboration.
Synchron provides its readers with an opportunity to discover ambitious, emerging artists beyond online platforms; and gives its contributors a versatile option to present their work.
This project grew out of our admiration for international communities, and our subsequent desire to build one of our own – with the particular understanding that young, self-taught artists and students still form a minority in the current art related print landscape.
Furthermore, in the course of conversations with these artists a clear consensus emerged: we feel that the value of (new) artworks is being diminished by endless proliferation of online publications accessed largely through the small shiny scrolling screens of smartphones. This was a major factor in our decision to choose print as our medium.
