komma Magazine Special Edition – Spam

Author: Cara Kollmann

komma is a student magazine of the Faculty of Design at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences. The komma Magazine Special Edition which was published on the occasion of the Werkschau 2019, deals with the topic of spam.

Slanted is giving away 5 × one copy of the magazine. To take part in the raffle, write an email with the subject “komma Spam” and your postal address (for dispatch) to [email protected] until October 21st, 2019, 11 a.m. (UTC+1). The winners will be drawn after the deadline and contacted by email. Whoever takes part in the raffle agrees to receive news from Slanted and accepts the privacy policy. Legal recourse is excluded. We wish you good luck!

“SPAM! The pressure is rising. Time is running out. We are surrounded by notifications. As soon as you are five minutes away from your mobile phone, you feel like you have missed three earth revolutions. We live in a very overloaded world—as soon as you go out the door, you are bombarded by advertising. Spam now reaches beyond our mailbox: there is distraction everywhere. The focus is directed by push notifications on supposedly important things. Differentiating between fake news and spam requires a great deal of concentration. The layout of the issue is precisely linked to this problem; 112 pages of loud pictures and pop-up messages—a cry for attention from all sides. We also want to stand out in your magazine collection. We need your attention to survive as a print product in the age of digitalization.”

Posters, photo series, illustrations, and texts by students as well as editorial work are shown. These deal both directly with the topic of spam and in a free, interpretative way with the topic.

The creative concept is based on an Internet browser with open tabs. The tabs in the form of a punched register serve as a navigation system through the magazine. As a special, temporary tattoos are included with the issue.
