The DESIRE issue

For this issue, we started by asking ourselves: what are human beings like when they desire?


They are pleasure-seeking animals. Consumers of new products. Subjects who lose themselves in the Other. Seekers of distant stars. In this edition, we have abandoned ourselves to desire. We have broken down its meaning, following different paths that speak to us of freedom, rebellion, and awareness.
