Kinfolk Magazine Issue 36 (the Movement Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com and focusses on movement in all its many forms.
No matter the pace, our bodies are in perpetual motion. Issue Thirty-Six of Kinfolk explores the role of movement as a vehicle for physical prowess, self-expression or indeed social cohesion — it’s no coincidence, after all, that authoritarian governments place such emphasis on synchronised activities.
In a special themed section, we’ll push beyond the merits of mere exercise to meet those who are finding professional and personal fulfilment while in motion. We’ll meet the athlete (TBC: Salwa Eid Naser) set to storm the 2020 Summer Olympics, and examine the limits — and apparent appeal — of endurance sports in a special longform essay. Elsewhere, our fashion shoot finds us firing balls at models’ faces, and we tap the experts for five tips on moving into a more agile mindset.
Plus: Issue Thirty-Six includes a summer shoot set in and among the otherworldly salt pools of Pamukkale, Turkey, plus feature interviews (TBC: Miranda July) and a dynamic mix of long-form journalism, shorter essays and concept-driven visual stories that explore subjects such as what makes the perfect villain, why some things are only ever destined to annoy us, and what to do when waiting for bad news.
Kinfolk is a slow lifestyle magazine published by Ouur that explores ways for readers to simplify their lives, cultivate community and spend more time with their friends and family. Founded in 2011, Kinfolk is now the leading independent lifestyle magazine for young creative professionals and also produces international editions in Japan, China, Korea and Russia. Published quarterly, Kinfolk maintains a vibrant contributor base from Copenhagen to Cape Town. Every element of Kinfolk—the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
