This event has been cancelled; the bad weather has prevented Kirsten and Ernst flying in from Amsterdam. All booked tickets will be refunded.
MacGuffin was the very first magazine we invited to speak at our magCulture Meets series when we launched it back in January 2016. Although then only on its second issue, the magazine had already cemented itself as a firm favourite here at magCulture for its truly original concept, stories and design.
Each biannual edition takes an object and explores the manifold stories it generates. Like the MacGuffins in Hitchcock films, these things are not the main characters, but the plot devices that set the story in motion.
Since that first event, MacGuffin has gone on to win several awards including the Stack Awards Magazine of the Year in 2016 and Editor of the Year and Art Director of the Year in 2017. We’re delighted to have co-founders Kirsten Algera and Ernst Van der Hoeven travelling in from Amsterdam to talk about how the publication has progressed and about the making of the most recent issue.
That fifth issue throws open The Cabinet to reveal icons of post-modernism, immaculate celebrity closets, whimsical cocktail bars, socialist kiosks and even a cabinet to marry. It’s another excellent issue and we look forward to hosting Kirsten and hearing more about this leading example of indie publishing.
As ever, the evening will see an illustrated talk followed by an audience Q&A.

Doors opens at 6.30pm and the talk will kick off at 7pm

magCulture Meets… is our monthly talk series. Each evening will provide the opportunity to share a beer with fellow magCulturalists and hear a magazine-maker discuss their project in an informal, relaxed atmosphere.
