Real Review – Issue 9 - Buy from LOREM (not Ipsum)

The Real Review Magazine Issue 9 (End Times) is about a different relationship with the future, as truly beyond our prediction or conception. It concerns inaction, a new type of passivity and patience, a heightened sense of our own being in the world, our collective humanity, and the value of non-human life.

Issue 9 (End Times) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. New omens appear on a daily basis: uncontrollable fires and floods, melting ice, rising seas, mass extinction, incurable pandemics, and escalating violence of thought and deed. How can we add something positive to this context, at the very climax of our global anxiety? Time destroys all worlds, and good riddance! The past is a foreign country, its horrors and delights recast by the temperaments of our present day.

End Times is about a different relationship with the future, as truly beyond our prediction or conception. It concerns inaction, a new type of passivity and patience, a heightened sense of our own being in the world, our collective humanity, and the value of non-human life.

The 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, this issue pursues what it means to live today.

OLAFUR ELIASSON presents a special artwork to help us feel more together, while WILL SELF reviews deep adaptation and the ellipsis.

HITO STEYERL reviews the algorithms designed to distinguish faces from butts. GIORGIO AGAMBEN reviews the contemporary.
