Intern Magazine is a new, bi-annual independent print publication concerned with internships in the creative industries. The magazine has two main aims. The first is to provide a tactile showcase for the precocious talent currently working in these fields unpaid and as interns. Secondly, we are initiating a long overdue and frank debate about the current state of the intern culture, and its potential implications in both the short and long term for the creative industries. The intention is to empower interns through both facets of the publication. Drawing industry attention to the work of those we feature and existing as a useful resource to those currently involved in or on the precipice of internships are our means of doing so. If you are at all compelled by the culture of unpaid work then you will find something of interest in our pages.
- Transition & Flux: Educator, Student and Artist Sophie Lee opens the issue by charting the changes in creative education and the creative industry since the Bauhaus. The questions she poses are responded to at points throughout the issue.
- Lab.: Lara Bullens takes a look at Foam Lab, the programme by Foam photography museum in Amsterdam which recruits an eclectic team of graduates each year. The lab set-up varies each year in order to ensure an enriching experience for all involved.
- To Earn or Learn: First year university student Andrew Bennett looks at the financial implications of going into higher education in the UK as opposed to entering the workplace after A-levels.
- A Place to Grow: Eike König explains his policy of only full-time employees at HORT via paid internships. Caroline Kurze explores whether his position at Offenbach University of the Arts is an influence and meets the current interns Jan Buchczik and Martin Groch.
- Test Run: Camberwell Press is a creative studio based at Camberwell College of Art, staffed by recent graduates, who for the most part, work unpaid in return for use of the studio space, facilities and the opportunity to tackle real briefs. Hannah Sargeant assesses the trade-off.
- Fairfield of Dreams: Unimpressed with the way that a fee-paying system has limited opportunities for emerging artists who aren’t wealthy, Ryan Gander is building a different kind of art school. Fairfield International will be a free residency programme where places are granted depending on potential and need.
