    SITE is a journal for contemporary art, architecture, cinema, and philosophy. When the journal started, we attempted to set ourselves a series of goals, or at least to circumscribe a certain terrain. Because of the plurality of interests among the editors — artists, curators, film theorists, architects, philosopher, art critics — this proved to be a difficult if not impossible task, and instead of operating with definitions that in the end do not define anything, we attempted to do the opposite: to remain as long as possible in an indeterminate state.

    The images are taken from the most recent edition, no. 33 from 2013. Konst & Teknik’s redesign was introduced in no. 20, 2007, when the previously bilingual journal gave up publishing articles in Swedish and became English-only. The text typeface is Lexicon No. 1 (i.e. with short extenders) in Roman A and Italic A styles, with occasional emphasis in Roman D (bold). Konst & Teknik drew a custom sans serif typeface used for titles, running headers, page numbers, etc., known as Tratura. Earlier issues from no. 1 (2001) to 18/19 (2007) had been designed Carlsson/Neppelberg, with Vectora as the main typeface.

      Thanks for this very nice post, and that Tratura / Site specific has made it onto this site. We should point out, that the screenshots are from our second redesign fro 2012, the first (in 2007) uses the same typefaces but a different format, A3, and the most recent format is more book sized.
