SALT. magazine is a contemporary art and feminism journal and research collective. It acts as a platform for artists and writers to reflect on the political within their work.

It was founded by Saira Harvey, Hannah Regel, Thea Smith and Jala Wahid, during their BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College at the beginning of 2012. It marked a dissatisfaction with a lack of feminist political discourse within the institution and the urgent need to foster a community. It was formed to exist within a wide gap that we perceived between simplified, maligned feminism within the media and an inaccessible academic feminist track.

The content selected here consists of a few pieces from each issue that we felt to be descriptive of the theme, and SALT.’s interest over the years, adding to up a larger narrative of the project. Each section represents one issue, and includes an extract from the original editorial, added to this are our own thoughts, reflecting back on the content, as we approach the end of 2016, and prepare to launch our 9th issue.

SALT. is currently edited by Hannah, Thea and Jala, and is published by Montez Press. The forthcoming, and 9th, issue of SALT. is themed The Furies and is scheduled to launch in January 2017.
