LEAVE ME ALONE—A FLAGLINE TO PROTECT YOU by Griet Menschaert in our second issue 
Have you had enough of the increasingly shameless interference in your life?
Have you had enough of the confusing rumbling in the Northern hemisphere?

Then this flag is for you!

With this flagline Griet Menschaert aims to keep aggressors at a distance. By placing it in your living room or garden on an imaginary north-south axis, invaders from the East and West alike are thwarted. On one side, the flag says Leave me alone in English, and on the other Не беспокойте меня—Do not disturb me in Russian. This flagline was devised to create a glimpse of peace for everyone under similar pressure. It was devised as a symbolic yet effective instrument that can leave you be—alone and undisturbed, at least for a fleeting moment.

Postcards from the falling paradise... here, Eforie Nord in 1974, photo by A.I. Florescu, in Miruna Dunu's article on socialist leisure, the (un)limited possibilities of architecture, and the Black Sea Riviera in our 2nd issue. •
•
To promote even more intensely the great achievement of mass leisure, the iconic image of the fascinating resorts was very effectively disseminated through postcards. The wealth of photographs of the time, widely distributed through postcards and brochures, is a rich visual legacy of the vibrant resorts. Their careful framing, often depicting fashionable characters enjoying sports activities on bright, sunny days with cutting-edge architecture in the background, were highly appealing to the public which readily immersed in this fantasy world. The postcard, with its rather limited visual vocabulary, possesses the power to not merely illustrate a setting, but to inform a profound impression of it.

Adidas or Adibas? Thoughts on Eastern European Counterfeit Culture—an article written by Laura Naum about Bucharest's biggest outdoor rag fair and photographed by Neal Gruer—explores sartorial aberrations, ironic consumption, post-communist mercantilism, & the West's questionable appropriation of the soviet-chic.•
•
Others treat themselves with a bit of ironic consumption: like buying a pair of Adibas shoes for €10—they definitely know it’s not the real deal, but they’re just getting them for a laugh. Or, more likely, that this kind of Eastern European sartorial aberration based on questionable appropriations (does the emergence of the post-Soviet chic trend tell you anything?) was endorsed by the West—the dictator of what’s sleek and what’s uncool.•

Spread from our second issue: Ania Łyszcz & Olga Roszkowska's Richtung Venezia, an investigation of Šutka's architecture and practices of dwelling, contemporary nomadism and migration in the Balkans, and the struggle for autonomy between the Roma population and local authorities. 
To some known as the bustling Roma capital of the Balkans, to others a run down ghetto on the outskirts of Skopje, the Shuto Orizari (Šutka) municipality is the only administration in the world that adopted Romani as its official language; it is home to schools where children learn Romani, two television stations, churches of eight different faiths, and a Walt Disney Street.  @ooroszkoo + @yszcz

In December we had the immense pleasure to organise a one-day zine/riso-workshop in Milano with @belli.gallery and @chorisopresstricepspress, that materialised into an improvised 40-page publication—Journey into Infinity. The future is certain, begins an old Soviet joke.
It's the past which is unpredictable culminated a rather distressing punch-line.

Drawing on the inevitability with which the past can reaffirm itself in the future, the workshop focused on the mechanisms through which meaning can be given to a future that did not happen. The participants were thus provided with a rather troublesome and complicated task: to reclaim, reimagine, and redesign their own utopia.
