item Magazin #4
item Magazin #4 (Independent platform for the Transfer of Educational impulses via a student Magazine) is the student magazine of the Department of Design and Culture at HTW Berlin.
In the fourth issue, the students explored the topic of strip, thereby breaking barriers, questioning privilege, and addressing subjects such as body positivity, diversity, sex work, and social norms.
Is love for sale or is noncommittal sex the new ideal? Are people whose bodies don’t conform to the norm included in fantasies and behaviors of the majority? Why, even in 2022, are feelings still interpreted as obstacles and femininity as weakness? Questions like these were tackled in this issue and exciting people, such as Ivana Vladislava, Annabelle Ferlings, Yanis Berrewaerts and Fritzi Krafczyk, shared their thoughts with us.
In addition, 19 projects by students from the Department of Design and Culture are featured in this years issue and provide an interesting insight into the recent semesters at university.
The magazine was founded, conceived, designed, and introduced by Sally Paschmann and is intended to provide insights into the debates, thoughts, impulses, and projects that arise during the course of studies. It provides a platform for students to introduce themselves and their projects and to consider their work in a socially relevant context.
