About Us


Garageland is a stylish arts and culture magazine published by Transition, from its base in East London. Garageland has been affectionately referred to as a 'cultural trash magazine' by The Guardian Guide's Jessica Lack, voted top of the ICA's Hit List and commended for its 'suggestions and provocations' in the Independent on Sunday.

Garageland Reviews is Garageland's extra curricular persona. It is an intrepid little blog containing reviews, comment and articles that add to the ideas published in the magazine.
