Hard Mag: Published by Dan Mitchell

Hard Mag: Is stronger than reason, and as such its content may trigger thoughts and feelings that some people may find difficult, offensive, disturbing etc. Strictly no one under the age of 18 may purchase.

Our daily lives are now standardised by pornography, violence, heavy drug use, fear, trolling, conspiracy, paranoia - themes that Hard Mag has been exploring since its inception in 2004.
Essentially the work is about readability of the images and therefore what the images are of. The images in Hard Mag are the closest betrayal of what it is to be human, i.e. as actors on the stage of psychopathology. Pornographic images are in effect images of people engaged in willing madness as they display primal concerns dressed up as modern exchanges of libidinal capital.
Pornography is still understood as a minor genre; the pervert going to sex-shops, or online assisted masturbation. But in reality, it is actually a constant in our daily society, it is our reality, hidden underneath layers of cosmetic and scripted thoughts, actions, words and feelings. Neoliberal capitalism is essentially pornographic as Paul B. Preciado puts it; ‘Pharmacopornographic’.
Hard Mag reveals the layers underneath like in the Carpenter’s ‘They Live’ or the fiction of J.G. Ballard.

Defending ourselves against the neoliberal battle within, the frontline of which runs through our very cores, this is our common task, Hard Mag acts as training manual to help you be adequately armed.
