Spike, founded in 2004, is a place for criticism and unconventional ideas, mixing writing on themes urgent and forever unresolved, from “Web3” and “After Beauty” to “Plants” and “Patriarchy.” As a print quarterly, a digital broadside, and an event space, Spike offers a soapbox to cultural critics and literary essayists to chronicle our time in thought. Spike is also visually splashy, by turns pushy, poetic, unexpected – and not shy to start an argument. Published quarterly by the artist Rita Vitorelli, Spike is one of the last remaining independent art magazines.
