criticismism is a journal of art and ideas inspired by work in Brighton, UK, and beyond. It is by Mark Sheerin (me, see above), a regular contributor to Culture24, Hyperallergic, and Bad at Sports.
My work has also appeared in Art Quarterly, the Arts Desk, Art and Music and (once upon a time) in The News of the World. One-off gigs include:
- an entry in a Whitechapel/MIT anthology on Nature
- an intro for the 2014 Catlin Guide
- a catalogue essay for Morphisisation show at APT Gallery (2014)
- and a chapter on art for forthcoming book Subversive Scene from Supernova Books.
My background is in literature, with an MA in Critical Theory from Sussex, where I wrote about deconstruction and madness. But nothing prepared me for the rigors of an NCTJ certificate in Magazine Journalism in 2009. That was crazy too.
