Issue Five, 1969
The magazine has been to date developing conceptual models, the policy with earlier issues being that a platform was set up and artists from different, and perhaps opposed stances being asked to comment or operate from it, with this issue however, it is made up of artists and theorists that are either thinking within the area that concerns the magazine or are operating within them. …While Control Magazine will continue to explore conceptual models and directions, what is felt is needed at the present time is hard information about the actual trialling of these models.
