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!

Super Design

Italian Radical Design 1965-75
It was the moment ‘design wanted to change the world’. The Radical Design movement rose from the students’ utter rejection of the tediously conventional design and architectural activity of the time, and the blazing desire to influence politics and society. This book revives the legacy of its key players like Lapo Binazzi, Pietro Derossi, Gianni Pettena and Alessandro Poli, and reintroduces the works of its pioneering studios such as UFO, Gruppo Strum, Archizoom, Studio65 and Superstudio. It shows the impact the movement had on other groups like Alchimia and Memphis and on postmodernist design. Inasmuch as the movement’s passions were politically and socially motivated, little of the original design ideas were developed with the consumer in mind, instead, they meant to be more of a provocative statement to spark change of reality.

Click delete to save your soul is the main message of Silicon Valley pioneer and web rebel, Jaron Lanier. In “Ten Arguments for Deleting your Social Media Accounts” Lanier warns about how algorithms are predicated on triggering negative emotions and manipulating our behaviours. “The evidence suggests”, he says, social media “is making us sadder, angrier, less empathetic, more fearful, more isolated and more tribal.” and as such there will be not solution if we do not take part in the solution. “Quitting is the only way to learn what can replace our grand mistake.” Buy

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
