Verfreundungseffekt Magazine / Launch and Exhibition


HEIMATMUSEUM and BATHYSPHERE EDITIONS presents Verfreundungseffekt Magazine / Launch and Exhibition 24/02/12 - 26/02/12 Verfreundungseffekt is a German-English language magazine exploring ‘Germanness' and ‘The Angloamerican' designed by Joseph Hales and edited by Jen Calleja. The magazine and exhibition assume cultures to be mythologies created by the tourist or the emigrant from another nation, with this perspective raising questions about the performance, idealisation and stereotyping of nationalities, as well as the possibility and problems of translation and comprehension. Verfreundungseffekt is a more ethnographic record of the modern-day émigrés moving from the UK to Germany/Germany to the UK/America compared to the academic, over-analysed and generalised accounts of a country's history and culture. The magazine was formed from an appreciation of German culture and language and a wish to help promote it, and will stand as a document of the individuals who move between the world of the German and the world outside of it.
