Fillip


Based in Canada
Active since 2005

Fillip is an editorial collective of six art historians, writers, editors, critics, designers, artists, and curators: Jaclyn Arndt, Antonia Hirsch, Jeff Khonsary, Kristina Lee Podesva, Kate Steinmann, and Amy Zion. This collective determines the editorial direction of Fillip projects and works directly with writers and artists to realize projects in collaboration with Publisher Jeff Khonsary and Editorial Supervisor Jaclyn Arndt.

The word “fillip” means to strike a soft blow or to hit in a non-violent way, as a stimulant. Literally, it is the action that results when one puts pressure with one’s index finger upon one’s thumb until the pressure is so great that the finger releases with a snap. Fillip was chosen as a moniker for the magazine in relation to this gentle provocative motion and as a double entendre using a common first name, serving as a timely and tongue-in-cheek response to other publications like the (now-defunct) art magazines Lola and Charley.
