Thank you to all our past contributors! 


"the MASS" ( the MASS collection) is a semi-annual online collection of discursive art, articles, opinions, prompts, thoughts, and questions, gathered in response to global issues. Released on the last day of each month, the MASS aims to provide a space for reflection, criticism, and a platform for art as activism.

the MASS is a volunteer project, run by artists Henry McPherson and Maria Sappho, and is free to access by all (we are not down with the capitalist agenda),


Everyone is welcome to submit works to the MASS: artists, thinkers, writers, worriers – people with opinions prepared to be critical. All we ask that works submitted are yours to share, and are offered in a spirit of openness. See our FAQ's for submission requirements and how to submit.

You can join the mailing list via MailChimp to hear when we go live each month.

Please note: we often feature artistic works including nudity, and adult themes.

Parental discretion is therefore advised.

The open call for 2023 is now live – OPEN CALL -
