The winter 2020 edition of Magiun is about adapting - as a coping mechanism, a way of learning or a creative way of moving forward. Whether you've adapted your expectations, taste, or methods, or failed in the process of adapting, I'd like to hear from you. Send your submissions until January 31st (text, image and anything in between) to

Open Call Magiun Food Magazine 

On top of it all, there's a new challenge - getting ourselves in the right state of mind to spend the holidays far away from our loved ones. How have the last few months of adapting to a new way of life prepared us for the last push of the year? How much of what we're used to eating and experiencing are we going to try and recreate this winter? What will be new, or missing?

Open Call Magiun #2, on adapting

Back in Spring, nobody wanted to imagine we'd be in a similar situation months later. Now, we find ourselves in the winter of 2020. We have limited opportunities to hang out and share food with our friends and families or to celebrate pretty much anything. Even though we've had months to prepare, it's still hard to keep it together.

Welcome to the web feed of A Nourishing Network, a publishing experiment starting from the feed as a potentially multi-directional circulation device.

Especially in this moment of reduced mobility and physical encounters, we are excited to launch this playful publishing experiment, which will circulate within a community that usually gathers in small-sized events and festivals.

--- Call for Subscriptions ---

Together with @alcstrt and @dvd we are working on A Nourishing Network (), a publishing feed that extends the bi-yearly festival in Linz, organised by @servus.

Especially in this moment of reduced mobility and physical encounters, we are excited to launch this playful publishing experiment, which will circulate throughout a community that usually gathers in small-sized events and festivals.

You can subscribe to the RSS, Atom or postal feed :) here:


If you subscribe to the postal feed you will receive multiple packages, including extra copies of the essays and means to forward these one step further.

The feed departs from the following questions:

- Another lost occasion for degrowth?
- Re-centralization or blooming alternatives?
- Artdiversity loss: is now Zoom the best art gallery 2020?

ps. You can also subscribe to the feed on Mastodon, by following this account:

Dystopian 1962 pro-DDT essay from Monsanto 

In 1962, Monsanto released an essay called “The Desolate Year” describing an entire year in the US without the use of pesticides (DDT in particular), in which “the garotte of nature rampant began to tighten”. Worth a read for the gripping description of the destruction of (female) monstrous bugs and the final reports on DDT as a life saver.

Zine launch announcement 

Delighted to announce that Magiun #1 is finally out, in digital form, and can be seen, read and commented upon at

Magiun is a magazine about everyday food. This first edition deals with eating in isolation - the struggles, the joys, the unexpected discoveries, the newly added anxieties.

Print version out soon!

food politics, fruit trademarks 

Fascinating/horrifying read on fruit trademarks in the US: “The benefit to consumers of managed fruits is that ‘they receive a good consistent quality product under that brand and know they can trust it.’”

uhhmm, what software are people using to catalogue their books at home? I just realised that Calibre is not very good when you use it for other purposes than an e-book catalogue...

Just got the Feminist Finance Zine from Amateur Cities & The Institute of Network Cultures and I’m well impressed!

So, my video “Is it time to eat, or is there no more time to eat?” is currently playing in a loop at esc medien kunst labor in Graz, during the exhibition Cyborg Subjects. I find that pretty nice, all things considered. Wish I were there to see it all.
