The White Review is an arts and literature quarterly specialising in artistically or educationally meritorious works of new artists and writers. Drawing its name from La Revue Blanche, a Parisian magazine which ran from 1889 to 1903, The White Review is inspired by the tradition of modernist literary and artistic journals, whilst also representing an attempt to create a space for emerging artistic and literary forms in the twenty-first century.
In this podcast, editors Benjamin Eastham and Jacques Testard talk about their inspirations in founding the journal, its reason for being, and the processes of setting up a new print publication. They also offer an insight into the challenges and rewards of working in a career in publishing.
This podcast was recorded as part of a lecture series to accompany Outrageously Modern!, an exhibition of avant-garde magazines at Durham’s Palace Green Library. A second podcast, on The Great War in the Magazines, is also available to download from this website.
