Indeed, Smithson's description suggests a model of the art magazine not as a single, unified field of discourse, but as a fractured, heterogeneous space in which multiple, overlapping, and contradictory types of communication compete and collide. Such heterogeneity and multiplicity have been central to theories of alternative or counterpublic spheres. In their 1972 book Öffentlichkeit und Erfahrung (The Public Sphere and Experience), Oskar Negt and Alexander Kluge point to the many alternative sites of publicity that arose alongside and in opposition to the dominant universal, homogenous public sphere described by Habermas.
