Control Magazine acts as a vehicle for proposals and explanations of art practice between artists seeking to create a meaningful engagement with contemporary society. 'The art practices that are represented in this issue … have in their various ways centered on the issues of meaning and function, and their counter consciousness to the object, property-based determinism of prevailing contemporary culture. An important aspect to the development of the work represented in Control Magazine has been the fostering of a network of relationships between artists and their modus operandi. Central to the feedback in these relationships is the practice of explanation, thus introducing a state of mutuality, an open social network, that is a catalyst for the progression of ideas' – extract from the editorial.
