Europe (Slanted 34)
The European Union with its 28 member states today is facing difficult times: financial crisis, refugees, loss of allies, and exit scenarios—as implemented in the United Kingdom—have led to fear and insecurity. Above all, the world is also witnessing how the digital revolution is creating a new image of humanity. The technical possibilities are about to go beyond what is politically and morally imperative.
So far, Slanted has devoted its editions to individual countries or metropolises in order to take a look at regional design scenes. In this issue, Slanted reacts instead towards broader world events.
Slanted Magazine #34—Europe is a plea for a multi-faceted and vibrant Europe, against the backdrop of an Europe of nations, right-wing populism, and selfish politics. It is an inventory of Europe, with commentary and perspectives from illustrators, photographers, writers and graphic designers from across the continent.
With contributions from Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, (Northern) Macedonia, Malta, Moldova / Moldavia, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.
