PLAY! The Game Changing Issue is currently only available for pre-order. The magazine will start shipping after the official launch date mid-September.
Play is one of the founding pillars that allows us to discover the world. To play is to learn how things work, how we behave, interact, and how we can solve problems. It fuels our scientific thirst for experimenting, the enchantment towards the magic of discovery, and the frustration of failure. It is also crucial in informing how we perceive and experience reality, and how we create a new, alternative reality that we might be able to control. PLAY! The Game Changing Issue investigates the powers at play in our society and its subversive, irreverent potential. It looks at its healing powers, the relief that comes from unlocking energy, creativity, and unexpected ghosts.
Through the 18 featured portfolios, we offer a range of approaches to the theme of play. This includes playing with the artform itself – from using collage, paint, or other surface interventions to convey ideas – to using humour, failure, and the unlikely as ways of understanding how and why we play. The theme also gave us a chance to be even more playful with the format of the magazine. Make sure to look out for the hidden portfolio!
