Issue 02: Play
kiosk magazine is a monothematic magazine, curated by seven friends from Münster, Germany, and filled with diverse contributions. kiosk is not only a magazine, it is also a place where texts and illustrations, photographs, and fragments, puzzles and inspirations meet. The design works as a connecting element and helps the contents to fit together and form unexpected connections. For the seven designers, it is also about the people and perspectives behind them, who find a meeting place in the kiosk.
The second issue is dedicated to the theme of play and all its different contexts and perspectives. Where are the boundaries between play and reality? What rules do we play by? For humans, play is a place of refuge from everyday life, where we are suspended from the habits and regulations of life. kiosk is intended to open up such a place again on 150 pages, to bring readers back to the analog, to challenge reading habits, to stimulate shared reading, and dialog.
Elena Scherweit, Jana Vogt, Julia Rosenberg, Laura Flethe, Leon Beckmann, Lu Kohnen, and Paula Götz are still in the mood for print. Sometimes it just helps to see things in black and white, like with chess. With the issue on the topic of play, they wanted to create a joker among magazines that invites everyone from age 0–99 to read without a fixed target group.
