June 2018: Issue #5 of the the FORTY FIVE SYMBOLS magazine is risographed in gold and black. It introduces the six winners and three honorary mentions of the open call 17/18 which received more submissions than any open call before including entries from India, Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Spain, Switzerland, and USA. Participants conducted forensic analysis of common everyday objects to act as a subtle wake-up call about modern life; developed speculative linguistics of a dystopian machine-driven world; observed cultural heritage, migration, and personal mobility; and translated socio-political topics of their culture into systems of forty-five visuals.
The magazine will soon be available via online platforms. Please send us an email or subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates. The open call 18/19 is accepting entries from September 1 – December 1, 2018.
