Worum geht es in dem Projekt?
‘Looka Here’ magazine is a platform for giving voice to
individuals and groups living in Berlin who might otherwise not be
heard. The magazine features a community forum, articles on
relevant political issues, poetry, photography, literature, reviews
and interviews with artists.
The magazine reflects the vibrant and diverse social reality in Berlin and the struggles some individuals must face.
Was sind die Ziele und wer ist die Zielgruppe?
We have published articles in several languages including
English, German and Turkish.
Previous issues included stories about Black History Month, articles by political activists, literature by local poets and authors as well as useful information for refugees (see: http://oplatz.net/2016/01/02/looka-here-magazine/).
The next issue will feature a series of photographs by Muhammed Lamin Jadama, an article on Basic Income, poetry, an interview with a student, as well as other continuing features.
Our goal is to print the next issue with photographs by Muhammed Lamin Jadama in color to fully represent these powerful images. We plan to publish 250 copies in February. These will all be distributed for free. The magazine is for everyone.
