The Real Review Magazine Issue 4 is out now. Against all the uncertainty and fear, nothing seems more eternal, more universal and (unlike our political leaders) quite so strong and stable as love. Summer 2017 is therefore dedicated to what it means to love today. Leap into our fervid arms.
Real Review magazine is a quarterly contemporary culture publication from the UK with the strapline “what it means to live today”. Our agenda focuses on the politics of space, and trying to understand how everyday conditions enforce and reinforce power relations. Through engaging analysis, evaluation and enquiry, the Real Review pursues what it means to live today. The magazine is the flagship publication of the REAL foundation.
