Shifter convened public dialogues and produced publications exploring themes at the intersection of contemporary art, theory and experimental writing. We published our final issue in 2021. Shifter was programmed by Sreshta Rit Premnath and Avram Alpert.

Shifter was founded in 2004 by Premnath. Issues 11, 12, 15 and 16 were co-edited by Steven Lam, Jane Jin Kaisen & Kajsa Dahlberg, Abhishek Hazra and Warren Neidich respectively. Shifter 17 to 21 were coedited by Matthew Metzger. Thom Donovan co-organized Project for an Archive of the Future Anterior and edited Shifter 23. Shifter 13, 22, 24 and 25 were coedited by Avram Alpert.
