Who is Monika?

The space we’re in

We are surrounded by brands, celebrities, products and patented packaging. We read our world fast. We know the names we like and the ones we don’t. We don’t have time. Creators strive to get known. Get the work rolling in. Be accepted. It’s good sense: a need to survive. But what if we could slow it right down for a little while, find ourselves time to ponder, space for suspense? Isn’t there something wonderful in the not immediately recognisable?

An unknown quantity

Monika is an arts journal that does away with bylines. As respite from the exhaustive branding of conventional media, contributors adopt a disguise that enables them to experiment with new material or style, to bypass expectation and play. By placing the quality of her content over the marketability of her contributors, Monika invites readers to decode identities, unravel mysteries and embrace the unfamiliar.

Telling tales

Through visual arts, design and the written word, Monika shares engaging ideas and observations. Each themed issue is designed to entertain and challenge readers with originality, wit, and sensitivity to the everyday. Combining imagination and experience, criticism and curios, Monika’s content is handpicked for its ability to render the unknown, unputdownable.
