Society disables sick people by not considering their needs in structures or the build environment. So having sick people in creative teams would be a huge asset and is grossly underestimated. [expand title="more"] But a common barrier for chronically ill people who want to work in the creative industries is the one-size-fits-all structure of office work and the frequent subconscious assumption that all employees are able-bodied. ⁠Sick is a magazine to elevate the much needed voices of sick and disabled people.

For the second year in a row we had the pleasure to get invited to the Taipei Art Book Fair. The original plan was to go there ourselves. But as it happens: something came in between…It turned out that one of the good things about books and magazine is that they don’t spread anything but joy and togetherness – so they went instead. Within our contribution box for this year’s TABF – a platform for artists and independent publishers to showcase what they’ve got – we packed a huge stack of the nicest, refreshing European printed matter. Next to a range of COVID inspired paper works as Home Alone: A Survival Guide by Max Siedentopf, a photographic diary of the lock-down by Stanislaw Boniecki or Isolate Zine, magazines as the very first issue of Alien from Portugal, The Politics of Public Space, SICK Magazine, Hinterlands and small independent publishers as Happy Potato Press, mono.kultur or Real Review were presented in Taipei. Even though, the first thing which came to our minds while looking at these pictures was: ‘Keep the Social distance, pals!’ it made us incredible happy to see the buzz at these 3 days venture into independent publishing. Well, all good things come in threes: See you next year TABF! And this time in real!  

Coming in a slim format, but unfolding into a wide one once you open it, Real Review is a magazine that wants to be stuffed into your pocket to be read wherever you go instead of laying around on the coffee table. While other magazines try to allure you by a pretty layout but leave you with articles that make you feel you just read two pages of placeholder text, Real Review captivates through genuinely well written and researched articles. The topics chosen are relevant and very specific, therefore giving you an actual inside in „what it means to live today“ – the motto of this quarterly magazine on contemporary culture. Issue 8 embraces subjects such as how extrinsic motives trick our mind like junk food so that we cannot stop following them even though they make us (scientifically proven) sick and unhappy. Therefor we all act like junkies basing our life choices on junk values. Followed by investigations of the fashion trend of merging luxury brand logos with lifestyle brands, Gucci’s twisted-around-logo to knock off the knockoffs or Vêtements’ 250$ take on DHL T-Shirts. While thoughts on how the presentation of the Chaise Longue, throughout art history until today, topped with a half naked, passively waiting female body, reveal the thereby manifested image of the sexually available woman. An inlay is featuring photographic and written snippets by Wolfgang Tillmans composed especially for Real Review. To be honest each article in this issue deserves a full review, but because this is social media and everybody is only looking at the pictures anyway, we suggest you to check out this jewel of a magazine yourself.
