I had new experience with the PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA magazine.

PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA is a project of assembled, experimental and rare contemporary art, which was born in the Villa de Móstoles Cultural Centre in 2018 and produced by the Department of Culture. It has the collaboration in its diffusion of the Merchants Federation of Móstoles, and the coordination of Pepe Murciego, artist and co-editor of the magazine La Más Bella.

PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA has created a rolling issue for its fourth edition. A fun and playful cardboard container, shaped like a LETTER P (for Periphery), decorated with arrows and stickers, and mounted on four colourful rubber wheels that allow it to be easily driven to the desired location. A car in which the trunk door is the entrance to the paradise of the seventeen eccentric pages or pieces contained in the magazine.

The signage icons of USTED ESTÁ AQUÍ (YOU ARE HERE) and of TODAS DIRECIONES (ALL DIRECTIONS) mark our location, place us in a certain space or randomly direct us to any other place. They tell us about places and our relationship with them, but also about our existence, our emotions, our human and emotional relationships, our relationship with the world and the people who inhabit it, about the physical and the virtual, in a vital moment in which the idea of distance and the idea of location have to be rethought, walking forward. Both ideas, wandering in a similar and / or contradictory direction, form a conceptual and inspiring part of the PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA 2021 project, the first as the motto of the II International Mail Art Call and the second as the motto of the fourth issue of the assembled, experimental magazine and rare, of the same name.
