Welcome to HASTA, the history of art magazine affiliated with the University of St Andrews’ School of Art History. Publishing for the first time in 1983, we are the longest running publication associated with the university. Historically we published in print, but since 2015 we have worked entirely online.
We publish a variety of art and art history related pieces in different styles and formats, including feature-length studies; global art news coverage; keeping track of art and art history at the university; and information packets about individual artists.
If you are passionate about art history and the art world, then HASTA is the magazine for you! We are always keen for new writers, so please feel free to get in touch at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nisan ıgdem - Managing editor
Nisan is a fourth year studying Art History and Comparative Literature. Originally from Istanbul, she is grateful to be raised in a city that inspired her interest in art and culture. She loves the art of the 20th century, especially Abstract Expressionism. Among her favourite artists are Mark Rothko and Fahrelnissa Zeid.
Besides art, Nisan is also interested in literature. Although her all-time favourite novel is Anna Karenina, she is trying to expand her horizons, both in arts and literature, by exploring the cultural products of marginalised communities. She believes that learning beyond the canon is what makes her Art History and her Comparative Literature degree interesting.
