Studio Voice is currently celebrating its 400th issue — now on newsstands. Marie, who has contributed quite a bit to the magazine, translates this bit about the issue (for the magazine’s website):
Beginning with its seminal reportage on late ’70s punk scene, STUDIO VOICE has underwent a diversification in the ’80s and segmentation in the ’90s. Today, when all information is disseminated in a level playing field, STUDIO VOICE retains its unwavering focus on the scenes of the present, while fighting to relay the baton to the next cultural generation. The 400th issue is an archive. Yet its purpose is not to instruct or to bask in nostalgia. Consider it an adrenaline shot from history to the dilapidated magazine culture of today, and a proposal for the future.
