Krisis Magazine, a little gem in Italian design publishing, just launched a campaign on Indiegogo to get fundings for its second issue. Support!
Among the many forms of funding, for 40€ one can have both issues of the magazine: Identities + Orientation.
From the description:
Krisis | Orientation is the second volume of Krisis Magazine, a publication curated by Unità di crisi, between design, communication, art, visual culture and new languages.
Krisis | Orientation is dedicated to disorientation and to the crisis of orientative models.
Disorientation is today a common experience, affecting people, communities, institutions and entire societies. The most visible effect is a tendency to the fragmentation, to the individualisation, to the selection, to the separation, to the monetisation of the social and environmental context.
The acceleration and the complexity of the phenomena make today difficult to build a personal orientation starting from experience, increasing the need of information and indications coming from the outside. This operation of framing complexity has been carried in time by linear language (such as narrations and myths), by systems of classification (mainly of taxonomical type), by visual representations (atlases, guides and maps), etc.
These models of orientation have now become confined, limited and unable to build wide and shared visions.
In this scenario, it becomes crucial to rethink disorientation as an experience that could be a source of renovation for new practices of orientation.
