Established in 1998, Afterall is a journal of contemporary art, providing a forum for in-depth analysis of art's context and seeking to inspire artists to see art as an agency for change. Afterall’s academic format differentiates it from popular review magazines. Each issue provides the reader with lengthy, well-researched articles, and includes different writers discussing the same artist's work from varied perspectives. The print journal itself is visually rich, with numerous accompanying illustrations. The Afterall Web site includes additional articles not appearing in the print version.


Afterall is published by Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London in editorial and research partnership with Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA) and the Department of Visual Arts–Open Practice Committee, University of Chicago.
