THE SECOND ISSUE DEPICTS GEORG-SCHWARZ-STRAßE IN LEIPZIG. DRAWN TOWARDS THE STREET BY ITS DARK AND MYSTERIOUS QUALITY, THE CONTRIBUTORS ATTEMPT TO REVEAL HIDDEN LAYERS AND STORIES OF A PLACE THAT, IN MANY WAYS, LEADS TO A PROMISE THE CITY OF LEIPZIG WITHHELD FOR THE PAST HUNDRED YEARS – AND STILL WITHHOLDS.

»STREETS ARE ALWAYS LARGER FROM THE INSIDE THAN FROM THE OUTSIDE«

Artist Michael Höpfner captures the street through a walking intervention to the words of author Maruan Paschen while photographers Ricarda Roggan and Andy Kania go on photographic trips using disposable cameras. Artists Absolom & Bardsley let forgotten groups of youths who fought against the Nazi regime reappear on the street in a photo series and editor Grashina Gabelmann and artist Agnes Lammert reveal the secrets of the mysterious House No. 1. Photographer and filmmaker Matt Lambert finds a hideaway on the street in his series »Schlupfwinkel« whilst Tom Marriott returns to the street for his outstanding visual work »Reflex«. Writer Roman Barton creates his own multi-layered archive using actual archive material. French folds provide lush hidden pages for the reader to find. In a pop conversation writer Sebastian Hinz and editor Fabian Saul talk about the GDR subculture while artist Martin Wühler and writer Hendrik Bündge team up for a 2065 sci-fi story set on the street. Editor Fabian Saul mixes fact and fiction, people and events together in his ongoing series »Traces of Resistance«. And there‘s much more: experimental sheet music, photos, drawings, poetry and the people of Georg-Schwarz-Straße.

The magazine consists of 168 pages + a 24 paged booklet with selected texts translated into German as well as 12 secret pages inside french fold and gatefold cover.
This issue was co-designed by James Lunn.
