Esperanto launches in an intricately interconnected world, bringing together leading intellectuals and creators to communicate 21st-century contemporary culture. It gathers various perspectives in a complex, diverse, and yet unified magazine. With art direction by Amsterdam-based design studio Experimental Jetset and editorial advice by Hans Ulrich Obrist, each issue offers reviews, sources, essays, and a special feature. This debut issue explores the concept of Whole Earth Government, a way to manage transnational citizenship and democracy in our global world. Musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, Experimental Jetset, and Berlin-based Korean sound artist Christine Sun Kim all contribute.
