Mayday in general
The world is becoming faster and more radicalised than ever. Mayday is an independent magazine about the erratic realities facing people, society, business and culture. Mayday is for women and men who are curious about the future. We cover art as much as technology, hope as much as despair, and creativity as much as destruction. As long as we see fascinating ideas or troublesome thinking. We are curiously exploring corners of the world and the mind on how to exist when you can’t predict the future or even the next day.
This is the world’s new biannual medium. Created in a rare combination of clever and beautiful, serious and playful, and forward-thinking yet respectful for the great accomplishments of humanity. It’s a work of art for all senses. It’s original. It’s Mayday.’ (From: Website Mayday)
