AQNB is a not-for-profit editorial platform committed to independent media. Working at the intersection of visual art, music and critical thinking, we cover a diverse range of experimental and emerging practices that resist classification. We gather and promote conversation across multiple grassroot networks, paying close attention to the discursive changes brought on by developments in technology and communication. We regularly look to the periphery to present some of the most radical voices today.

AQNB is a growing community of contributing artists and writers presenting fresh perspectives in the arts. Our internal policy gives editorial priority to those tackling structural inequality in the industry and promotes underrepresented practices. We work with artists directly and encourage involvement from groups, project spaces, galleries, curators, festivals, labels and publishers on a national and an international level. We produce in-house and regularly commission features, interviews, focus pieces, reviews, mixes and creative writing.
