Flaneur Magazine Issue 9 (Boulevard Périphérique, Paris) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. The Boulevard Périphérique is mostly perceived as an infrastructure of communication. It is, indeed, a road. And whilst the opening scene of La la land (2016) made us reconsider the opportunities offered to us by traffic jams, a road is mainly designed for high-speed circulation. You don’t dwell on the ring road – you pass through.
Yet, on second thought, the Boulevard Périphérique is a home. About 700,000 Greater Parisians live within proximity of the Boulevard Périphérique. How many more hear it? Smell it? Use it? How would we even Flaneur it?
For Issue 9 we return to our namesake city and challenge ourselves to find the other Paris – not the one depicted in mainstream culture.
The issue will be bilingual, English and French.
