Doppelganger Magazine >> About



Doppelganger magazine is an exclusively online journal based in Vancouver, BC. We are devoted to publishing lively, intelligent, and critical writing on visual art and literature. Specifically,we are interested in boundaries. What defines one thing in relation to another? From this question, we hope to explore a series of other questions. For example, what defines “good work”? What possible futures can criticism have? Then we hope to complicate these questions, however tacitly, by asking: how do two seemingly different practices—visual art and writing—correspond? As we imply in our tag line, it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins.

Doppelganger began in October 2005.
