STRIKE Magazine looks at this process through the medium of art and the ability of artists, despite class boundaries, to break away from the conventions of contemporary aesthetics.
STRIKE Magazine seeks to present new and alternative looks at art, criticism, poetry, fiction, music and culture to the public and to provide and independent publishing medium for artists and writers.
STRIKE Magazine is a completely independent publication. It is supported at a grassroots and community based level. STRIKE employs open editorial methods based on ideas of democracy and aesthetic autonomy. While STRIKE, and its content, is presented within a political framework, it is not governed by any single ideology. All material is reviewed fairly and in a democratic manner without knowledge of the contributor's name or background.
It is the position of STRIKE that the public has a right to access the mediums of art at no cost and without limitation. For this reason, STRIKE is completely free and may be requested via email by anyone anywhere at no cost. STRIKE represents an attempt by working class artists and writers to create a democratic organ that is completely independent of capital and the bourgeois sentiments surrounding modern aesthetics. STRIKE recognizes no significant difference between editor and contributor. Interested parties are encouraged to actively participate in the development of the publication.
