Creative Time Reports, a multimedia platform that published the unflinching and provocative perspectives of artists from over 50 different countries on the world’s most challenging issues, was produced from 2012-2017. Asserting that culture and the free exchange of ideas are at the core of a vibrant democracy, Creative Time Reports published over 366 stories to a wide range of media outlets that spoke truth to power and upended traditional takes on current issues.

These texts question the framework of the news and offer radical recalibrations of complex topics by weaving in perspectives on media culture, mythology, psychology or history that inform our political thinking.
