Lorand Laskai announces that the first issue of the new magazine New Bloom is out. From Facebook:
++++++++++++Friends-It's with great excitement and minor apprehension that I share with you a project I've been working on the last few months.New Bloom is a politics and culture magazine that came out of Taiwan's Sunflower Movement, in collaboration with a number of the young activists and thinkers that made the movement possible in the first place. Our goal is to create a space for critical discourse on the problems facing Taiwan, turning its current crisis in democracy into an opportunity for creative engagement and revaluations of the political, cultural and social issues immanent to Taiwan, as well as Asia at large. I hope you will take a look.
New Bloom is a politics and culture magazine devoted to stimulating intellectual conversation between Asia and the international world. Inspired by the sunflower movement and the crisis in Taiwanese democracy, we've decided to start this endeavor with Taiwan. We aim not only to spread news of Taiwan to the world, but have deeper conversations about the more critical questions which the present demands of us. If you like what we're doing, please share!
