Could we read this as a graphologist would interpret handwriting? Or as a scientist who analyzes and interprets data to look for meaning?
Halfway between a book and a magazine, “The City Is Ours” is a finite series of 6 bookzines published by Other Editions that invite you to explore your city, town, or street with more curious eyes. One detail at a time.
Urban ready-mades, involuntary paintings, accidental sculptures and parts of the urban landscape that normally go unnoticed.
With a scientific-but-ironical approach, each issue analyzes a specific detail related to the streetscape through a photo essay. Art is used as a tool: to help bring awareness to our surroundings.
It features also works by international artists, photographers, and observers: images combined with clear and simple language inspire the reader to observe the city as they have never seen it before.
