Slanted Magazine - Issue 36 Coexist - Reading Room


Slanted / 36


COEXIST—to live or exist together, in peace, at the same time, or in the same place. The first time in our lives the world is changing fundamentally. We need to rethink what all this is about. Higher, faster, and further at the expense of others cannot point the way to the future. We need to question ourselves, how we want to coexist, show consideration, and take a step back.In summer 2020 Slanted initiated a global call for submissions questioning topics such as climate change, political power, human rights, freedom of speech, wars, and many other global issues.More than 450 designers, illustrators, photographers, writers and artists from all over the world contributed to this extra thick issue (almost 100 pages extra—352 instead of 256).


The award-winning print magazine Slanted is covering international developments in design and culture and dedicates each monotheistic issue to a particular city or country twice a year. It is published by the print and media house Slanted Publishers, run by Lars Harmsen and Julia Kahl.
