Our magazine Utblick just published their new issue – Colours.

 

“The most immediate connection between colour and politics that come to mind is perhaps the way political parties use them to create an identity that corresponds to their point on the ideological spectrum. But in terms of meaning, colours are ambiguous. Colours receive their respective denotations in specific social, cultural and political contexts. The colour red does not translate into similar political sympathies in Europe as it does in the United States, to name one example.” — Letter from the editors of Utblick

 

You can read the new issue online, together with a big back catalogue of Utblick magazines. Our members will get the magazine in their mail box.
