Set Up Tolerance - background for the magazine:
The magazine is a part of the interdisciplinary umbrella project SET UP TOLERANCE. The project is socially and politically-motivated and focus on inter-humanity encounters and significant communal production can contribute to a nuanced view of, for example, the stereotyped opinions we might have of each other. 

We experience a polarised debate on ”us and them” between minorities and majorities both in public media as well as in private forums, which seems distorted in who is being represented and on what terms.
We find that the prevalent media often focuses on individual cases and problematic, creating enemy images which are diligently made use of in the political and populistic manipulation of the population’s/ our perception and experience of its/ourselves and each other. Today the media forms a huge part of the continueing telling and retelling on ourselves and our community. 

Parts of the project will l focus on issues concerning women and representation but in general we deem to create a platform which open for more nuanced expressions and remarks on different and on own terms than the terms offered by the well known media.  We aim to create a common space of remarks and expressions in an interdisciplinary magazine, web site and video production where current social, political issues can be debated and challenged and at the same time respect our different professions and our different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
