TREZE DE MAIO, SAO PAULO
FOR OUR LATEST AND BOLDEST ISSUE TO DATE, WE’VE IMMERSED OURSELVES IN THE COMPLEX LAYERS OF SÃO PAULO’S TREZE DE MAIO. IN COLLABORATION WITH MULTI-DISCIPLINARY ARTISTS, ACADEMICS, AND LOCALS, FLANEUR MAGAZINE EMBRACES THE STREET’S COMPLEXITY, ITS LAYERS AND FRAGMENTED NATURE WITH A LITERARY APPROACH. THIS TIME, THE FRAGMENTATION OF NARRATIVES IS MORE THAN EVER REFLECTED IN THE ART DIRECTION AND EDITORIAL APPROACH, ONE THAT CAN MIRROR THE FLOW AND INTERCONNECTIVITY OF THE MAGAZINE’S MONTHS-LONG PRODUCTION. THE STREET TREZE DE MAIO (13TH OF MAY) HERE IS BOTH, A PLACE AND A TIME, THE 13TH OF MAY 1888, THE DAY OF THE OFFICIAL ABOLISHMENT OF SLAVERY IN BRAZIL. IN THAT WAY THE ISSUE READS THE CITY LAYER BY LAYER, FORMING A MULTI-VOICED COLLECTION OF CONTRIBUTIONS THAT ARE INTERWOVEN WITH THE EDITOR’S OUTSIDER VOICE THAT EXPLORES THE REOCCURRING THEMES WITHIN THEM. THIS ISSUE IS BILINGUAL, ENGLISH & PORTUGUESE.
The empowering portraits of marginalized women who in collaboration with fashion designer Karlla Girotto and Alessandro Marques produced their own masks, challenge notions of visibility and representation.
Camila Svenson and Pétala Lopes employ the street as a hidden narrator that traces and constructs the intimate universes of their female subjects. Their photographic essay originates in the vulnerable encounter between photographer and subject.
Referencing Walter Benjamin’s »One-way street«, dramaturge, theater director, curator and researcher José Fernando Peixoto de Azevedo ventures out to portray a street that synthesizes all the contradictions of São Paulo.
Mixed media artist Paulo Nimer Pjota recalls a malandragem of samba and Italian food. His large wall works mostly made out of found metal sheets contain colliding components that are neither literal or direct, but instead suggestive and sometimes curious running through multiple streams of consciousness.
Photographer Tatewaki Nio captures moments at the intersection of Treze de Maio and Brigadeiro, reflecting a passing of time in the uneven landscapes of São Paulo. His work engages with the urban fabric and the identities of those who inhabit it. Professor of Architecture Guilherme Wisnik reflects on his work in an essay.
Meat and how it is consumed is a constant theme in this neighborhood. André Penteado’s photographic work relates it to the country’s violent history of slavery and post-colonial service culture. A beef restaurant on the street becomes his focal point.
Extending his previous research on the Bixiga neighborhood and Black culture in São Paulo, Rafael Monteiro, explores how Black culture moves from underneath the visible to the cultural surface focusing on Vai-Vai, the neighborhood’s legendary Samba club.
Karoline Barros and Amanda Vieirá explore the nearby »lesbian ghetto« of Bixiga that existed from the 1970s to the 1990s, as cyclical. For them, the current and the past Bixiga neighborhood are eternally connected. Their piece uses memories told by Marisa Fernandes, a lesbian and feminine activist.
Andre Meirelles Collazio’s essay »Notes on a Film« is a literary cut from the innumerable interviews, testimonies, and observation of the daily life of the people of Treze de Maio, including the Nordestino migrant group who live on the economic fringe.
Author Noemi Jaffe attended high school in the Bexiga neighborhood and dated her first serious boyfriend on Treze de Maio. In her return to Treze de Maio, she remembers and acknowledges the passage of time – both for herself and the city. João Bandeira’s poem reflects this notion.
Photographer Viva Meyer adds the view of the outsider. Her photo collages, which display a virtual reality of the cityscape, were created during her first stay in São Paulo.

BOULEVARD RING, MOSCOW
DIVERGING FROM THE PRINCIPLE OF FOCUSSING ON ONE STREET, WE LET OURSELVES SUCCUMB TO MOSCOW’S UNDERLYING COSMOLOGICAL BLUEPRINT: THE CITY IS MADE UP OF ORBITS. THE BOULEVARD RING IS THE FIRST ORBIT AND ON IT WE CHOSE FIVE BUBBLES THAT ENCIRCLE THE KREMLIN. THESE BUBBLES ARE NOT JUST PLACES – THEY ARE CONSTELLATIONS, PRINCIPLES, MOTIFS FOR OUR EXPLORATION. THEY ARE FOCAL POINTS THAT WE CAN RETURN TO, WHEN WE GET LOST, THUS THEY ALLOW US TO GET LOST. THEIR BOUNDARIES ARE AS BLURRY AS THEIR INNER CENTRE. BUT FOR NOW, WE CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IN THEM – WE CHOOSE TO LET THEM TAKE US.
Chapter 1: Arbatskaya Square – Kirill Savchenkov, uses the skateboard as a tool to explore the cityscape as a training zone for future survival techniques. In his essay »Tactical Behaviours« editor-in-chief Fabian Saul turns to the concept of tactical behaviours to decode his meanderings.
Chapter 2: Pushkinskaya Square – Author Ksenia Golubovich revives her childhood memories by returning to her former communal home. A team of people collected a wealth of information of those using the Boulevard Ring to paint a vivid picture of the transient life on the Ring. Oxana Rudschenko tells stories of her life on Pushkinskaya Square through the twilight of the Soviet Era.
Chapter 3: Chistye Prudy – The photographer Anna Skladmann visits her grandmother’s house in Germany that is full of artifacts of her former life in her native Moscow. Pavel Pepperstein introduces us, with the grace of one who has seen everything, to his home on Chistye Prudy, where he grew up with his father, the artist Viktor Pivovarov. Marinika Sadgyan uses social media content to reconstruct a civilian attempt to save a Constructivist building from being demolished. Photographer Stas Galaktionov explores the underground vibes of one of the last remaining squats in the neighbourhood.
Chapter 4: Moskva Waters – Editor-in-chief Grashina Gabelmann uses her watery dreams and a challenging cat to navigate through a psycho-geographical, introverted piece. The artist Judith Sönnicken considers the mental architecture of disappearing and reappearing structures. Her considerations take on the form of a fictional museum and its permanent collection, for which she is a curator and artist. In the piece »Two Hours In«, a bar on Chistoprudny Boulevard provides the setting for a free-wheeling conversation about five-year-olds watching Soviet-era parades on YouTube, Lacan and the question of whether or not you can talk about sex while having it.
Chapter 5: Prospects – The last chapter considers the future as much as the possible futures of the past, the crossroads that haven’t been taken, through a collection of poems, short stories and visuals.

FOKIONOS NEGRI, ATHENS
FOLLOWING THE ORAL HISTORY OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD OF KYPSELI, THE MAGAZINE FINDS ITSELF ENTANGLED IN A STORY-HEAVY MICROCOSM. FOKIONOS NEGRI, ONCE A RIVER, NOW A BROAD AND GREEN, TWO-SIDED BOULEVARD BECOMES A STAGE OF OVERLAPPING NARRATIVES WHERE STORIES ARE TOLD AND RE-TOLD. AS ON EVERY STAGE, THE DESIRE FOR THE STORY IS STRONGER THAN THE NEED TO SUBDUE IT TO RIGID LOGIC. THE MAGAZINE EMERSES ITSELF IN THESE FRAGMENTS UNTIL THEY BECOME OUR VERY OWN MEMORY.
The entire magazine is held together by three bodies of fragmented text called The Road Up and The Road Down. The collection of stories, poetry, overlapping narratives and numerous characters and voices sets out to be a mythological storyteller – just as a the street itself is. New York-based artist David Whelan took his artist residency on Fokionos Negri as an opportunity to unearth underground resistance in a series of narrative snapshots. Fokionos Negri-based artist Antonakis illustrated his obsessive search for the actor who played the leading role in the infamous 1960s film The Punk of Fokionos Negri. Eirini Vourloumis embarks on a photographic, double-exposed exploration of the street, initiated by a tasseography fortune told to her in the street’s Magic Cafe. With a strong literary focus, this issue presents an essay section that consists of four stories: a mythological tale of a boy stuck between two worlds; a Greek, a Bavarian and a broken elevator; a famed opera singer and her Kypseli sanctuary; a 33rd birthday at the centre of the world; a filmmaker’s search for a potential script. Photographer Zoe Hatziyannaki was triggered by Keats’s poem »Ode on a Grecian Urn« to undertake a photographic search for romantic purity. The artist Iris Touliatou mimicked an online medical forum to imagine the effects of olfactory hallucinations, with the street as a producer of phantom smells. The architect and curator Elina Axioti considered the vanished doormen that used to keep the mail and secrets of those living in Athens’ modern, multi-home structures, along with photographer Yiannis Hadjiaslanis. Traces of Resistance, a regular series by editor Fabian Saul, is a historical counterpoint to the very story-focused issue, drawing lines between different lives and stories connected through the street and resistance. Another ongoing series, the shop and home visits series presents souvlaki shop Rigani, cafe Foivos and the restaurant Phaedra, and the homes of former jetsetter Poly, artist Antonakis and consultant Mikali. For the reccurring series »Photographic Trips,« two children capture Fokionos Negri through their own eyes, each using a disposable camera.
CORSO VITTORIO EMANUELE II, ROME
THE STREET, THOUGH UNAVOIDABLE FOR ROMANS AND TOURISTS ALIKE, IS A STREET THAT CAN EASILY BE DISMISSED AND IGNORED – IT’S HECTIC, FRAGMENTED AND NOT BEAUTIFUL BY ROMAN STANDARDS, BUT IT IS HERE THAT ROME’S FUTURE WAS ONCE CONSIDERED, AND THE MAGAZINE ATTEMPTS THIS CHALLENGE AGAIN.
For the reoccurring »Photographic Trips« Vatican conservators Giuseppe Ammendola and Rosaria Basileo capture Corso Vittorio Emanuele II through their own eyes, each using a disposable camera. New York-based Roman photographer Fabrizio Amoroso performed and witnessed miracles on the street; a watermelon-filled fountain, a ruin turned into a lake and a saint climbing a ladder. Roman artist Carlo Gabriele Tribbioli assembled a geographical archive in which the coordinates are prey, a fish caught in Rome’s Tiber. Along every step of the catch, the animal’s transfiguration and preservation were documented. Again, the magazine experiments with film, in and beyond its pages, as Roman filmmakers Matteo Zoppis and Alessio Rigo de Righi are confronted with a mysterious door, the keeper of its keys and parrots. Artist and Villa Massimo resident Annika Larsson displays her recorded sound archive of the street in lists, photographs and notes. The heart of Issue 04 is Questione Romana, an experimental faux panel discussion debating the future of the street and hence of Rome. The panel is formed by eleven individuals ranging from architects and curators to journalists, artists and politicians. Their answers are in the form of edited dialogues, sketches, archival material and guerrilla interventions. Traces of Resistance, a regular series by editor Fabian Saul, is the historical counterpoint to this discussion of the future, taking the reader through different historical epochs and moments of Roman history.
The magazine consists of 152 pages (plus a fold-out leporello) + a 16 paged booklet with selected texts in Italian and a gatefold cover.

RUE BERNARD, MONTREAL
THE THIRD, AND FIRST INTERNATIONAL ISSUE, DEPICTS RUE BERNARD IN MONTREAL, CANADA. THOUGH CREATED IN MOSTLY SNOWY AND FREEZING WEATHER CONDITIONS THE ISSUE IS A VIBRANT, VIVACIOUS AND DYNAMIC HYBRID OF STORIES AND PEOPLE MIRRORING THE CLASHES OF IDENTITIES THAT IS CANADA.
For the reoccurring »Photographic Trips« sculptors Michel de Broin and Jonathan Villeneuve capture Rue Bernard through their eyes using a disposable camera each. With a collection of essays depicting Canada as a land of fragmented identities the writers David Homel, Josip Novakovich, Jean-Sébastien Larouche and Andrew Zadel beautifully reinforce Flaneur’s concept of being a literary magazine. Montreal choreographer and dancer Frédérick Gravel stages an intervention on the street with a group of dancers playing not only with the street’s void but with the meaning of dance in a static format. Writer Caia Hagel and editor Grashina Gabelmann teamed up with illustrator Mivil Deschênes to pay homage to Rue Bernard’s roller derby girls and Montreal’s love to graphic novels with the comic »The Rolling Supernovas«, which is presented in a comic book format. Writer Tim Woods Palma finds himself on the street in the middle of the night in a peculiar state of mind. He writes snippets of prose, collects things off the street and records conversations he has with others including his mother. This confusion of information and materials is presented cleverly in an experimental format. Photographer Tim Georgeson met and followed two young boys in love against all odds. Their love story and philosophies are recorded by Caia Hagel alongside the images. And there’s much more: the shops and homes of the people on Rue Bernard, inner conversations visualized through 3D renderings, a dreamy food shoot and an architectural walk down the street.
The magazine consists of 136 pages (plus a sixteen page comic book and a in lay of fragmented snippets) + a 18 paged booklet
with selected texts in French and a gatefold cover.
