Limited Europe Special Edition / Magazine + Risograph Zines + Tote Bag
On occasion of the release of Slanted Magazine #34—Europe, a limited Europe special edition has been published and is exclusively available in the Slanted shop. It contains a tote bag with the European flag motif and a collection of 9 zines, printed with 2 colours on a risograph, that take a closer look at the values of Europe.
This Is Europe
The great importance we attach to the fundamental values of Europe shows that these are more than ever the essence of European identity. In the seminar This Is Europe at Karlsruhe University of Art and Design (HfG), 9 students asked themselves the following questions: What about freedom, democracy, equality, tolerance, rule of law? What values does Europe stand for today, and what are the common achievements of which we as Europeans are proud of?
The results are now visible in this collection of zines that are a personal plea for a multifaceted Europe.

Slanted Magazine #34—Europe
The European Union with its 28 member states today is facing difficult times: financial crisis, refugees, loss of allies, and exit scenarios—as implemented in the United Kingdom—lead to fear and insecurity. Above all, we are also witnessing how the digital revolution is creating a new image of mankind. The technical possibilities are about to go beyond what is politically and morally imperative.
So far, Slanted has devoted its editions to individual countries or metropolises in order to take a look at the design scenes. This time we are reacting towards the need of getting together and showing the importance of the voice we have and should use, to protect the freedom others have reached for us.
Slanted Magazine #34—Europe is a plea for a multi-faceted and vibrant Europe, against the backdrop of an Europe of nations, right-wing populism, and selfish politics. It is an inventory of Europe, showing a comment, a perspective, a feeling of illustrators, photographers, writers and graphic designers from all around Europe.
