My flatmates Yves and Ruben have been hard at work on the latest issue of Quottom magazine recently. Me and my girlfriend are on the cover of this issue titled ‘SEXUALITÄT und GEWALT’. It is only available in German at the moment but the design and image content makes it way worth picking up a copy even if you cannot read the articles. Here is a brief description of the magazine and what you can expect to find inside. Links for their facebook, twitter and instagram at the bottom of the post!
'Quottom is a cultural magazine, published twice a year, timelessly combining topics of art and life. It provides room for long stories and reports, extraordinary portraits, columns and essays along with expressive photo galleries and works of artists. Two terms, oppositional at first sight, mark the editorial part and hover above portraits and photo galleries. Quottom shows a fresh perspective of youth culture and the topics, concerning all of us.' Ruben Feurer
On being asked if she is a feminist (in light of stars such as Shailene Woodley, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson rejecting the label): “I don’t think they really understood what feminism is. It’s a right. Feminism, to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself. Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can’t have blonde hair; they want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out. Or I’m too skinny, so, like, ‘Eat a cheeseburger.’ I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I’m, like, a born feminist. I’ve been a feminist since I was four years old.” - Chloe Grace Moretz
