What started as an easy solution – trawling through the magazine’s archives in search of interviews and conversations to bundle and reprint – turned into a complex analysis of “datedness”. Blind spots were revealed, old trends came to light, instances of amnesia emerged, and sometimes it seemed like nothing had changed. The editors decided to give the original interviewees and writers a chance to reflect, perhaps redeem themselves, even decades later. Some were unable and others were no longer reachable. So they asked respected colleagues and experts to comment or give their own context instead. The result is illuminating, a truly layered celebration of the space in between.
