About 10 years ago, in 2008, we opened do you read me?! as a space fully dedicated to printed matter. Think of your favourite bookstore, with a well curated assortment of books and some magazines and newspapers on the side, but turned upside down. That’s about it. Fashion, photography and art, architecture, interior and design, illustration, graphic design and typography, cultural matters and society. We (almost) have it all! 



Who reads poetry? We thought it would be a smart move to chose ‚Dare‘ and asked one of the most dazzling voices of this new poetry wave and the co-editor of Pain Magazine: Vala Thorodds.

Since you are working on both sides: How would you explain the fulminant revival of poetry and the notable fact that rather young fellows are back in the game?

I think the way that everything has to be expressed very succinctly on the internet has helped people, especially young people today, to realise that they can read and understand poetry. Whether poetry is better appreciated now than it was before… I’m not sure that’s necessarily true. But as an example, Twitter has put people into what is in a sense a poetic frame of mind… because it’s a medium in which you have to express a lot with very few words, you have to really boil it down.



For all the cinéastes among us and for those who want to become one: this is for you! While the Berlinale Film Festival is right around the corner, we are delighted to present you our nominees in the category cinema, film criticism and screenwriting. Lean back and ‘may the force be with you’ while exploring our treasures.

Sindroms #2 2018

Sindroms #2 2018

Yellow
Against the backdrop of Scandinavia’s dark seasons, Sindroms shines a bright, yellow light in search for poetically narrated stories, anecdotal notes and striking images. Compared to the previous issue which paid tribute to the colour red and the love, the passion, the violence, the risk and the fury we tend to associate with it, this second issue filters the prism of reality to focus on everything yellow, and therefore the happy, the optimistic, the friendly, or, the things that signal jealousy and states of anxiety.

Brutalism - Now and Then

Brutalism – Now and Then

Massive Expressive Sculptural - Chris van Uffelen
Massive, Expressive, Sculptural - Brutalism: Now and Then, is a conveniently thick volume, wrapped in a clear-cut hard-back cover, in accordance with what we’re going to be dealing with inside. The rise and quick fall of brutalist architecture within the span of two decades (1960s - 1970s) was thought of as the end of it. But apparently, the powerful impressions left thereafter by the raw-looking variations and imposing greatness of béton brut have triggered a new surge of interest. In 300 pages, Brutalism: Now and Then offers a comparative outlook on the differences and similarities between some of the undervalued brutalist buildings of the past and some of the most successful brutalist architecture and design of the moment.

Apartamento Cookbook Launch and Signing

Apartamento Cookbook Launch and Signing

Friday, November 9, at 7 pm
Apartamento Magazine and do you read me?!, together with German artist Stefan Marx, warmly invite you to join us in celebrating the release of Apartamento’s latest cookbook on Friday, November 9, at 7 pm. Since 2016, Apartamento has invited the world’s best chefs, food lovers, and culinary taste makers to contribute to a series of annual cookbooks. Each edition is based around a specific theme, and this year the book provides a fresh take on a global staple: the humble grain of rice. Stefan Marx has accompanied each of the 16 recipes with his weirdly adorable drawings. Come around, hang out and grab your signed copy by artist Stefan Marx. Apartamento will be donating 20% of all profits made from sales of the book to a local charity in Barcelona, so the evening will also be in support of a good cause. We look forward to seeing you there! Buy
