UND* wants you!

* Magazine for Alternatives, Contradictions and the Concrete

OPEN CALL #10 has finished!
UND #10 will be out in May 2021.
The next Call starts with June 2021.

The next issue’s topic: spatial_order 

Whatever we do, we do it in spaces: We go from the living room to work, get lost in digital space, switch from public to private space, from the country to urban areas and back again. Every space is defined, regulated and somehow limited. But where are these boundaries, and who is the one to set them? Does space define what we do, or is it our actions that define space? How is our environment designed? And who surrounds whom?

Globally, people go to streets and places – for themselves, for us, for tomorrow? What are we allowed to do in the public space and what not? How will future cities work? And how will they adjust to climate change? Where does a society originate? And where is room for something else entirely?

Travel places and spaces all over the world and in between. Rearrange and tidy up! Sketch intimate stuff. Organise public space. Play on your surroundings. Show us your lebensraum!
