Who decides what is ‘contemporary’?
The inaugural issue of Scroll, titled I Don’t Care I Love It, produced by Max Anderson, Kimi Hanauer, and Lee Heinemann, investigates tastemaking and highlights significant local cultures that exist independent of socially-constructed hierarchies.
The Contemporary’s departure from a permanent, physical space theoretically expands the museum’s presence to the entirety of Baltimore. Scroll: I Don’t Care I Love It responds to this potential by creating a space which is inclusive of people, places, and things that are seldom represented in traditional institutions and histories.
Scroll is an annual publication, published by The Contemporary, and produced entirely by its intern staff. Each issue of Scroll will explore a different cultural topic related to the mission and efforts of The Contemporary and will be available, for free, in print and online.
