Real Review 11
Real Review is a quarterly contemporary culture magazine with the strapline “what it means to live today”.
The pandemic is an ongoing tragedy at every scale. Yet this collective trauma has become an excuse for global capital to accelerate the total commodification of everyday life. Everything is for sale. There is more merchandise than love, more sponsored content than truth. All hobbies are side hustles. Our networks are our net worth. Friendships are commercial partnerships. As a coping mechanism, many amongst us have decided to check out from reality altogether; preferring to inhabit tailor- made fantasies and simulations. But only children believe that closing their eyes renders them invisible to monsters. This issue of Real Review is dedicated to “what to believe”.
Contributors to issue 11 include Carlo Rovelli, Kris Kozlowski Moore, Bella Gladman, Jack Self, Eddie Blake, Yuk Hui, Andi Schmeid, Keller Easterling, Maisa Imamovic, Chiara Di Leone, Laura Lizondo, Debora Domingo- Calabuig, Timothy Morton, and Helen Marten.
