DK Speak Up! release and exhibition

The theme of this issue focusses on life, lifestyle and economy in a time that seems to show a paricular awareness for issues of identity, imagemaking.... In this issue we aim to give critical comments on the theme  ‘better life than bare lifestyle’ within the frame of public ‘co-life-style-producing’ elements and present Speak UP no 3 as a life life-style magazine.  

WELCOME TO Speak Up! issue no. 3

Better life than bare lifestyle

Speak Up! No.3 Better Life than bare Lifestyle deals with life, financial circumstances and lifestyle in our identity-conscious and identity-seeking age.

Speak Up! has invited a number of contributors who all relate to the issues of forming identity in a world where life seems to be more engaged in, rather than stimulated by, all the things which happen and grow in the spaces in front of and between us.

Our aim is to embrace this complexity and to accommodate different views on how life and lifestyle can be managed.

As such, this edition of Speak Up! contributes a critical remark as well a positive response to the mass of lifestyle magazines. Using the template of a glossy magazine format we wish to discuss the paradoxes and to offer the reader more than just five minutes to flick through.

We offer a playful, unfinished chance to create a new identification and identity, and we pay tribute to lethargic, fragile, critical contexts and manifold ways of living.
