Real Review – Issue 6

CHF 17.00 (incl. VAT)

The Real Review Magazine Issue 6 is out now (Just in time). The challenges to our species have never been more obvious, yet the required actions have never seemed more impossible. After several decades, Just-in-Time production (only making what you need, only when you need it) has become a generalised model. We now expect everything on demand, from clothing to houses, and food to friends.

Issue 6 is out now. The unreal magic by which objects come into being has also changed our relationship with the process of making. Increasingly, we are more interested in the how than the what, with even inferior artisanal and bespoke commanding a premium. Will we be able to redress social inequality, dampen the effects of global warming and reinvent democracy just in time?

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.
