The submitted visual narratives express individual perspectives on the topics of transforming gender & identity, shifting cities & urban inequality and global social & climate changes. The selection process of the jury was driven by the following criteria: Ability to translate topics into visuals, the level of exploration of the symbolic elements to transmit the message/story, systematic approach and uniqueness of the visual language.

The FORTY FIVE SYMBOLS magazine #2
The second issue of the FORTY FIVE SYMBOLS magazine introduces five selected projects that respond to some kind of social change. They comment on the sociopolitical situation in Russia, Venezuela, and the US; reflect on individual life choices in Hong Kong; or depict our lives as modern nomads. The authors of the projects–introduced at the end of the magazine–have varied cultural backgrounds, but they share agency in using their creative talent to address social issues. This publication juxtaposes their concerns with selected articles of the The Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the United Nations. Find the documentation of the process on our blog.
