The Toe Rag - Issue 2 - Consumption

The Toe Rag - Issue 2 - Consumption

The Toe Rag is a quarterly arts and culture magazine focused on non-profit and independent arts in London. Launched in December 2023, it was created to place artists, artistic spaces, and communities in dialogue with one another.


The publication hopes to foster a vibrant ecosystem that uplifts and celebrates the creative brilliance of the city, while critically examining culture and the systems in which it is embedded. Regarding print as an invaluable medium for the dissemination of ideas and democratisation of information, The Toe Rag prioritises slower, more thoughtful creation over efficiency of output, opening up new possibilities for rest and play, togetherness and joyful curiosity. As a registered C.I.C. (Community Interest Company) with non-profit status, we are firmly rooted in our commitment to serving the community. 
 

Spring Issue, March 2024

 

CONSUMPTION


Issue 2 took the theme of CONSUMPTION in the most expansive possible sense: as digestion, materialism, commodity fetishism, excess, waste, disease, devotion, obsession. To consume, or to be consumed by something: whether thinkingly or unthinkingly, conspicuously or inconspicuously, as transaction or transformation. We welcomed material that engaged critically with the theme and stretched it to its limits, exploring the contemporary politics of consumption in London and its diverse histories.
