This is a particular time for us here at Chambre Fluide. These very days one year ago, we happened to be on a group phonecall, bouncing ideas off each other to find a way to push through the challenges of being independent creatives facing a lockdown imposed by a pandemic that took the whole world by surprise for its unpredictable impact on every aspect of our life.
We came up with the idea of Chambre Fluide, a place where we can share our passion for visual culture and the multiple facets of artistic expression and practices, as we consider them powerful tools to navigate and respond to the present times.
The enthusiastic response throughout the year has excedeed our own expectations and it allowed us to meet, even if just through a laptop screen, so many people from around the world, and a few of them ended up joining our growing team of writers and contributors.
This will always be a work-in-progress kind of thing, ever-evolving and shapeshifting, open to exchanges. we called it "Chambre Fluide" ("fluid room" in english, "stanza fluida" in italian ndr) after all!
And so, as we celebrate our first year, we've decided to make a few changes to our editorial approach, taking things at a slightly slower pace.
We have decided to change our editorial approach, and we're doing it it by choosing one main theme per issue, in order to discuss its many nuances across the various sections we cover, such as Art and Architecture, Cinema, Fashion, Graphic Design.
We thought of a sort of fil rouge for all the sections, with these macro-themes which will then be explored by each of our editors each time over the coming weeks.
So let's celebrate our first year together with the launch of the new issue and its main theme:
The Sense of Community and the Analysis of Society.
We cannot wait to see what the future holds for us all!
