Launched in Spring 2010 in Edinburgh, line magazine is a freely distributed, bi-annual publication that provides a platform for emerging artists, writers, critics and academics in the visual arts field. Each edition focuses on a theme, which is discussed throughout the publication.

The overarching aim of the magazine is to expose and promote the work of young talent and to forge connections between the most interesting new and non-profit art spaces across the UK.

The tenth issue The Pleasure of the File opens with an essay by Rachael Cloughton on Recent re-navigations of the Archive. Georgina Bolton interviews artist Grace Schwindt on ‘un-doing systems’ in relation to her multi-dimensional performance and video work and Hannah Knights writes on the contemporary narrative of Anthea Hamilton and Helen Marten’s work in Image over Image. Sarah Hardie looks at Ed Atkins’s quest for the here and now in Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths and Elliott Goat studies the former mayor of Bogotá, Antana Mockus’ strategies for a democratic self-regulation. Dunya Kalantery opens the archive of the present-past in Anachronistic Architecture & the Janus Face of Progress and Joseph Constable considers the difficulties of curating Lygia Clark’s legacy. The lesser-known history of Glasgow’s cultural heritage is re-told in Neil Cooper’s essay Life in a Scotch Sitting Room - The Noise and Smoky Breath of The Third Eye Centre and Joe Townend writes on artist Neïl Beloufa’s rhizomatic model of artistic production and ‘ethnological sci-fi documentaries’.

The issue’s visual contributions include newly commissioned work by artists Bruce Ingram, Oliver Smith and Charlotte Morgan and the designers and publishers An Endless Supply introduce their ‘Source Sans How To Work Together’ typeface in our Curator’s Page
