Slanted Magazine #30 – The Athens Special Edition.
In spring 2017, the Slanted editors headed to Athens, Greece in order to take a closer look at the local contemporary design scene. It was the perfect time because, for the very first time, the Documenta took place at two sites. Usually, the event takes place every 5 years in Kassel, Germany. In 2017, the Documenta opened its doors additionally in Athens. With its two locations, the event offered fascinating contrasts between rich and poor, between Germany and Greece, and different cultures within Europe. Athens still suffers from dramatic cuts in culture budgets, but the Documenta brought back art and life to the city. Slanted’s editors met a broad range of creatives from Athen’s contemporary design scene such as Bend, The Birthdays Design, Blaqk, Bob Studio, Dylsectic, G Design Studio, Irini Gonou, Luminous Design Group, MAMA Silkscreen, MNP, Parachute, StudioJugi, Typical Organization, Urban Calligraphy, Ifigenia Vasiliou, among others.
“On occasion of the release of Slanted Magazine #30—Athens, a limited special edition has been released which is exclusively available in the Slanted Shop. The edition contains a screen printed tote bag, designed by Blaqk, a photo essay by photographer Daniel Rupp and a risograph booklet, designed by Xenia Fastnacht, produced at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe.” For those of you who want to purchase this fine publication, just have a look at the Slanted website.
