Kinfolk Magazine Issue 49 (the Scandinavia Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. In Issue Forty-Nine, we set out to explore Scandinavia—but not as an exoticized lifestyle paragon. Instead, we feature a cast of cultural leaders who draw their creative strength from the darker side of the region. We meet pop sensation Tove Lo, who writes searingly honest songs about life’s ugly truths. We speak with famed Swedish painter Karin Mamma Andersson about why she’s drawn to darkness in art. And we catch provocative filmmaker Ruben Östlund (Triangle of Sadness) after he’s presided over the jury at the Cannes Film Festival.
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.
