Mask Magazine is an experimental publication in the age of late capitalist world-weariness. We’re a subscriber-supported, ad-free, online publication and podcast network based in Brooklyn, NY. We launched on February 1, 2014. You can support us by subscribing. Subscriptions start at $3 per month.
Our goal is to empower young people to take charge of our future and rewrite the narratives of what we’re capable of doing together in this world. We believe cooperation, understanding, curiosity, and respect across difference is necessary to reach that goal.
We strive to be a platform for empowering struggle and solidarity across places, scenes, and sentiments. We do so by broadcasting the thoughts of fellow antagonists and our experiences of everyday life and struggle; publishing features that contextualize what’s going on in different industries, scientific fields, and other power nodes; documenting new ideas for and examples of how to live differently together.
Our areas of interest can be divided in to seven areas:
Each month, we release a new issue on maskmagazine.com. The issues are available to subscribers, although each article is free to read for a few days. We broadcast new content on social media and in our newsletter. In the future, we hope to release a print publication and books.
We also run the podcast network Mask.fm.
We are interested in reaching a large audience, but we are not willing to contribute to the flooding of our feeds and attention spans with meaningless, careless content just to garner clicks and views. We believe the commodification of our lives is a huge threat to a more equitable future. We strive to only publish that which is both relevant to our audience members and aligns with our mission.
