our evening with Ricarda Messner from FLANEUR

Last Wednesday we had a very nice evening with Flaneur Magazine's founder and publisher Ricarda Messner in the shop. We asked Toine Donk from Das Magazin to do a Q&A with her on the magazine's start-up, approach and the new issue that is about the Corso Vittorio Emannuele II in Rome. Ricarda talked about the literary aspects of the magazine, the way they choose streets and how they find the contributors for the issue.
It was interesting to dive into the magazine that we see as an important and distinctive title on the independent landscape. It was good to see so many magazine fans and magazine makers together. The audio of the talk was recorded - the stream is below.

This event was a collaboration with our friends at Expodium as part of their Unmaking the Netherlands year program. They have a section in the program on walking culture (Rethinking Walking Culture). In addition to the event in the shop they invited Ricarda to give a talk on flanerie and walking in cities at the beautiful Werkspoorkathedraal in Utrecht last Friday, together with artist and walking expert Mariska Gewald. The video's of this talk are online on the Walking Culture section of the Unmaking the Netherlands website.

We would like to thank Ricarda for coming to Amsterdam for these two events and Nikos Doulos of Expodium for the nice collaboration.
