Why and how print is not dead

This panel will take a look at the booming independent and quarterly magazine production of the last few years and explore how despite the crisis of traditional print media an incredible number of small publications have been launched. Through the personal experience of Federico Sarica, co-founder and editor of Studio, Ricarda Messner, founder of Flaneur magazine, Cesare Alemanni, co-founder and editor of Berlin Quarterly and Ibrahim Nehme, founder and editor of The Outpost, it will dig in to such questions and do its best to extrapolate a number of answers. The panel will be moderated by Alberto Mucci, The Outpost’s assistant editor and a regular contributor to Studio. (altro…)
