WOW. With this amount we can pay the costs for the production, the editorial and conceptional work, the THANK YOU Gifts as well as the charges and the shipping.
The MNML magazine is a community project and
platform for topics art, the present age and social change. The
movement is dedicated to mindfulness, appreciating moments and
consciously slowing down your everyday life. The magazine is not
only about minimalism but for minimalism.
In our very first issue (printed + digital) we introduce you to the photographer Natalie Christensen and discuss her psychoanalytic subtext. Next, we ask Leo Babauta: “Why should one be a minimalist?”, we talk about Vu-Jàdes, which advice a psychotherapist would like to give every one of its patients and how the “fashion changers” want to establish a new way of dealing with the fashion industry. This and much more can be found in the first issue of MNML magazine.
Photographs by Natalie Christensen, Maarten Rots, Stanislas Augris, Amanda Briggs, François Aubret, Liz Watson, Giacomo Tintori and many others.
Contributions by James Kezman, Leo Babauta, Nessa Elessar, Kevin Reduts, Laura Vanselow, Jana of the Fashionchangers, Lion Lion, Ani Menua, Nils Wadt, Michelle Ritzmann and Florian Wassily Kazimirski
The MNML magazine is a community project and an
open platform for people who accompany and shape social change with
minimalism on a small and large scale.
Our target group are those who deal consciously with photography, art, philosophy, and design in relation to the present, minimalism and sustainability.
The magazine will be an opportunity for authors and artists of the community to involve themselves in the project and to make their own contributions and share their own work.
We need your support for the first issue.
Our goal starting with the second issue is to publish the magazine independently twice a year and provide our community with a lasting platform for inspiration and information in the field of minimalism.
What we want to achieve together with you:
The first MNML magazine PRINT!
Support us and become part of the project.
For the first MNML printed issue, limited to 1,000 copies, we need a total of 9,500 euros for the production, shipping & postage as well as for the conceptual & editorial costs.
What we do with the money:
- we produce a high-quality magazine of 140 pages
- it`s in the format 210 x 280 mm, Paper Circle Offset Premium White (Blue Angel)
- Print of the "Fine Art Prints Thank You" on Hahnemühle paper 308g/ m²
- finance postage + sending thank you notes and MNML magazines
- sustainably printed at our eco-printing and vegan production
(Blue Angel and Vegetable Oil Based Colors)
- not packed in plastic
- for protection, we hand-wrap the magazines in recycled tissue paper
SUSTAINABILITY IS IMPORTANT TO US. THEREFORE, IT IS NOT LIMITED TO THE CONTENT ITSELF, BUT IS A FOCUS THROUGHOUTTHE ENTIRE PROCESS OF CREATING THE MAGAZINE.
If we overshoot our funding target, we will use the money to partially refinance the second issue of MNML magazine (we plan to spend two issues a year in the future).
Behind the project are Florian, Fabian, Helena and Christian. It is a collaboration of Galerie Minimal, the KOCMOC Publishing Space and the international minimalist community.
Fabian and Florian are the founders of Galerie Minimal, Helena and Christian are the founders of KOCMOC.
Galerie Minimal is a gallery for minimal photography and offers limited photo art prints from international artists. In addition to the regular exhibitions, the founders organize many other events such as photo walks, lectures, workshops and book presentations to give their guests the opportunity to feel and see what minimalism is like.
The KOCMOC Publishing Space was launched in March 2019 and is a sustainable independent publishing house based in Berlin. It focuses on illustrated books, artist catalogs and art books.
The friendship between the KOCMOC publishers and Florian and Fabian led to a brainstorming event in which the dream for a common magazine blended with minimalist ideas and philosophy was born. Now, together with you, we're trying to make the MNML magazine a reality.
