Collapse is an independent, non-affiliated journal of philosophical research and development published in the United Kingdom by Urbanomic.

History and profile[edit]

Collapse was founded in 2006[1] by Robin Mackay. It serves as a successor to the ***collapse journal that operated between 1995 and 1996 and was similarly edited by Robin Mackay. The magazine is based in Oxford.[1] It features speculative work in progress by contemporary philosophers, along with contributions from artists, scientists and other writers outside of philosophy.[2] In December 2008, as a part of BBC Today guest editor Zadie Smith's programme, the author Hari Kunzru listed Urbanomic's Collapse as an avant-garde philosophy journal in his A guide to the artistic underground.[3]
