Modern Primitive Exchange (MPEx) is a forum of art, design and ideas for living through the End Times. We maintain a blog, write essays, collect media and support programming on this theme. Our mission is to determine what of the so-called “modern” and what of the so-called “primitive” are useful in a contemporary ecology.   We aim to foster skills of self-reliance in the (post) modern world and encourage ecological thinking.
