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.
