By Zoe Strachan, John Walter and Louise Welch
The first issue of a magazine from Hayward Gallery Publishing. Shonky is a slang term meaning corrupt or bent, shoddy or unreliable, standing here for a particular type of visual aesthetic that is hand-made, deliberately clumsy and lo-fi, against the slick production values of much contemporary art. Shonky theories provide a critical framework for thinking about visual awkwardness.
