    TURNING THE
    TABLES

    Thank you, INDIECON2015 Hamburg, for the invite. Johannes, the better half of our incredible design studio y-u-k-i-k-o, talked about what it’s like “pouring the multi-layered Flaneur observations into a mould”.

    FLANEUR TURNED TWO!

    Last Thursday, on June 25th, we celebrated our two year anniversary in the old Schlecker store – the same place in which we launched Issue 01. This time though the re-printed Kantstrasse issue was joined by the three issues we have made since then (Leipzig, Montreal and Rome). Among our guests were people who have followed and supported us since day one alongside new friends whom we have met along the way. It’s these sort of celebrations that make you take a step back and realize what’s been going on and having done that we couldn’t be happier, more thankful and motivated for the future. This is because of our friends, readers and supporters. So, really: THANK YOU! May there be many more streets to come, more wonderful encounters and many more evenings of celebrating.
    Much love, in gratitude, Flaneur

    La(r)go Argentina Rome, 2014


    »Rome is so boring, Rome is so dry.« Architectural performance group LAC, ATI and Stalker believe the answer to Rome’s future is the transformation of the ancient ruin Largo Argentina (located on Corso Vittorio Emanuele II) into a lake. Let the Romans swim! Let Romans touch their history instead of viewing it from afar!

    After several brainstorming sessions (scuba diving gear, crabs and safety floats being mentioned) Flaneur and the performers/architects met by the ruin armed with flyers, posters, empty vessels for collecting water and a model of the ruin-turned-lake including live gold fish.

    Through skills of persuasion we got passer-byers to sign petitions noting down how much water they are willing to donate, then as a symbolic start to the controversial transformation every petitioner had to take water from a fountain and pour it into the ruin. Some concerns arose: what would happen to the cat population home among the ruins and wouldn’t the water be harmful to the ruins? It’s hard to convince pragmatics and cat lovers but for the most part it worked without providing much information and the day ended with a very visible formation of a puddle on the ground of the ruin. (No cats were harmed during this performance.)

    Talking in the Netherlands!


    We’d like to thank one of the world’s greatest magazine stores for inviting us to talk about the making of Flaneur magazine at Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum . A couple of days later we headed down to Utrecht to “rethink Flânerie” which is a part of a great new initiative curated by Expodium . Take a look at the audio & video at Unmaking The Netherlands Walking Culture.
    Netherlands – it’s been a fun, interesting visit!

    Photographic Trips


    For >>Photographic Trips<< within Flaneur Magazine, we give two individuals of the same profession a disposable camera each and let them capture what they see on our chosen street. For >>Photographic Trips<< online, we want to spread the love for the streets by asking people whose work we love to choose any street and document it using their phone, analogue or digital camera - doesn't matter! Take a look at our first set of images and see how you can contribute on our Instagram account.
