What is H.A.C.K.?
H.A.C.K. is an online publication that covers visual art and culture in Michigan. We’ve been in continuous operation since January 2012.

Why the name H.A.C.K.?

We see ourselves as individuals engaged in the act of hacking culture–

Hack can be defined as:
(1) to make rough cuts and in an effort to shape
(2) to explore and manipulate the workings of a system; to gain unauthorized access

And if all fails, well, we own up to this definition:
(3) someone who produces dull and unoriginal work

Why the acronym? Just as computer hackers continuously manipulate code, we don’t assign a singular phrase to the letters in an effort to keep the system open and evolving.

Who are we?

However, she wastes endless time fantasizing about walking the catwalk for Betsey Johnson instead of writing.
