New City Reader [01 - Agenda] hits the streets of Istanbul!

The new edition of the New City Reader has hit the streets of Istanbul with its first issue: Agenda. This issue’s editors are the founders of the paper, Joseph Grima and Kazys Varnelis; texts by Joseph Grima, Benan Kapucu, Ethel Baraona Pohl, Elian Stefa, Pelin Tan, and Kazys Varnelis.

The New City Reader is a newspaper on architecture, design, public space and the city. First published as part of The Last Newspaper, an exhibition held at the New Museum for Contemporary Art (New York City) in 2011, a new edition of the public newspaper will be published by the Istanbul Design Biennial team, to be hung on the streets of Istanbul in the months preceding the opening and during the run of the Istanbul Design Biennale. Each issue of the The New City Reader is guest-edited by a contributing network of architects, theorists, and research groups who will bring their particular expertise to bear on the individual sections.
 In emulation of a practice common in the nineteenth century and still popular in parts of the world today, the New City Reader is designed to be posted in public for collective reading.

Conceived by 
Joseph Grima (Domus) and Kazys Varnelis (Netlab), this newspaper’s content is derived from a series of discussions, debates, interviews and research into the spatial implications of epochal shifts in technology, economy, and society today.
