Magazine launch: hinterlands #4 - the pink issue | 10 May - 7 pm
Say hello to pink! We warmly invite you to celebrate a new hinterlands magazine. Join us for the launch of the pink issue in our bookshop, on Friday May 10, from 7pm and expect pink drinks and treats.

hinterlands is a print magazine for rural realities and narratives from Europe’s rural regions. In reports, essayistic prose and photographic formats, hinterlands magazine presents local reporting from villages and non-urban areas and creates a transgressive understanding of rurality.

The pink issue presents rural sites of encounters, which might be familiar or alien: a rural theater stage, a rave on an open field, a shared table or a traditional country fair - which is not solely a place for exhibiting productive livestock and their trade but also to mingle, to meet. Rural pink comes with a certain softness, sensuality and vulnerability, horse girl desires and reflections of human-animal relations. It is deeply personal, lingering in ideas of girlhood, but also offering a wide playground to fathom gender roles and queerness. At the same time, pink is loud, it shines through, it can’t hide. Alerting as well as appealing in nature, it can cause irritation as well as soothing memories.
