FORMAT #27 Wut
Student Magazine at HfG Gmünd
FORMAT is the design magazine of the students of the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd. It is written, designed, and published by the students on their own responsibility. One issue is published per semester, which deals with a general topic of social and design relevance. The current issue FORMAT #27 Wut is entirely devoted to the theme of Anger.
Anger initially appears as a very irrational, often unreasonable emotion. Images of Querdenken-demos, territorial and religious conflicts, violence and hatred run through the mind. But delving deeper into the topic, one also encounters anger more and more often as a driving force for positive change. Angry are racists and extremists. But angry are also the young activists of FFF or designers who implement projects for a better future out of anger.
For the FORMAT team, dealing with the topic of anger goes far beyond a mere, emotionally charged exchange of opinions. How did the National Socialists misuse runes and symbols of Buddhism for their messages of hate? How has the concept of anger been expressed in different artistic eras? And how does it feel to successfully sue the German government as a fifteen-year-old for its insufficient climate protection legislation? Nevertheless, many personal and subjective opinions and essays also find their place in the current FORMAT.
FORMAT #27 comes with a risograph poster. The front page is decorated with an illustration. On the back of the poster, anonymously submitted opinions and statements from the students of the HfG are printed without being filtered. FORMAT sees itself as the mouthpiece of the students. The cover of each copy is hand-sprayed, so each FORMAT of issue 27 is an individual one-off.
