Our predecessor, the weekly newspaperOrientering”Was founded in February 1953. Since August 1975 it changed its name to MODERN TIMES - as a continuation of the previous Orientering. Between 2006–2010 the newspaper changed format into a magazine. Later this was changed back to a newspaper tabloid format. In 2015 MODERN TIMES was renewed as a classical critical (intellectual) monthly newspaper – with Truls Lie as editor-in-chief. In 2020 MODERN TIMES was changed into a quarterly, mainly as an international non-fiction review – «documenting reality».
