Within the format of a magazine, each page of Pfeil represents the floor, walls, or ceiling which together create an imagined room displaying a printed exhibition. Each issue is dedicated to a specific word, with artists invited and given space to work on and with this term, and to construct or deconstruct the architecture around it. Combined, the contributions transform into an organic display surrounding the leitmotif.

#12 Economy: Deriving from the ancient Greek word oikonomía, from oikos (‘house’, ‘household’) and nemein (‘assign’/’divide’) to describe the activity of the oikonomos (‘housekeeper’), this issue focuses on actions of economic production, sale, exchange, consumption, circulation, distribution and recycling or disposal of any sort of good or capital. Inside, among others, are the topics of currencies, social media and attention economies, meat, sex and intimacy, pink-washing, vodka and watermelon, and whether car gas is more harmful than cigarette smoke.
