The current historical period in which we live has caused us to reflect upon our circumstances in new ways. Adapting, creating and growing. AGORA Magazine Issue 1 promotes these new perspectives and acts as a memorandum for these times. The magazine includes quality works of art and literature from numerous talented artists, interpreting the set theme “New Perspectives”, AGORA Collective aims to highlight these projects in this engaging, challenging but most of all meaningful period moving forward. 1
About the Artist
AGORA is an open space for artistic, social and political discourse to emerge. It is a Dublin-based art collective founded by Giórgia Graf, Freja Blomstrand and Sebastian F. Mahon with the aim to develop a platform for emerging creatives to engage with and contribute to the visual arts in Ireland and abroad. Each artist is asked to create a body of work in response to a set theme, representing their unique vision. Taken from the ancient Greek meaning ‘gathering place’, AGORA seeks to provide a space for creatives to produce work which may otherwise go unseen. We want to promote and participate with visual culture in all its forms.
