Some Magazine #10 Fire

FHP, 2019/20

The Some Magazine was first published in 2010 under the direction of Prof. Sven Völker. The non-profit magazine has a foothold in independent publishing and was available in bookshops at MoMA in New York, Colette in Paris and Doyoureadme? in Berlin. The aim of the independent publication is to report on the interface between design and art.

The last issue was published in 2015; after this far too long break, our editorial team brought the magazine back to the bookshelves. Where it is now available in Germany, Switzerland, The Netherland and Portugal.
Issue #10 revisited the unloved element, “Fire”. While all our sympathies fly unchecked to the three other primordial elements, i.e. earth, water and air, fire looks into an uncertain future. Associated with catastrophes, over-romanticism or pre-industrialisation. For this issue, we gathered designers and artists to unpack the wide-ranging narratives of fire collectively in the categories: Symbol, Power, Transform and Intimacy.
