Krass Journal #3
March 2017 Surprise Unwrapped!
Krass Journal is a biannual independent magazine from Australia focusing on politics, philosophy, art and literature.
The third issue of Krass, a relatively new, bold and radical journal, captures passionate conversations and thoughts on subjects as varied as politics to music – featuring Siri Hustvedt (an American novelist and essayist), Senator Scott Ludlam (an Australian politician), Maryam Namazie (human rights activist) and Ishmael Butler (an American hip hop musician) amongst others.
Editors| Tess Martin and Sanja Grozdanić
Krass identifies itself as ‘independent, ambitious, gracefully impolite’. The description fits. The idea of the publication seems indeed to stir your emotions and you begin to understand that the minute you lay eyes on a copy of the magazine. The bold typography and psychedelic colours in print suggest strong opinions that don’t want you to simply submit. It is rebellious and will ask more of your attention.
Conversations with artist Stanislava Pinchuk, Siri Hustvedt (an American novelist and essayist) and an introduction to the work of human rights activist Maryam Namazie, makes for thought provoking reads.
