Kajet Journal joins Stack
Frustrated by the “purely anecdotal” understanding of Eastern Europe, Kajet Journal is a beautifully bookish title with new perspectives from the region. Published in Bucharest, Romania, it wants to challenge the stereotypes and misrepresentations attributed to Eastern Europe by mainstream media.
Named after the easternised version of the French ‘cahier’, denoting ‘notebook’, it blends think pieces with culture writing, photography and art. Beyond being fans of print, founders Petrică Mogoș and Laura Naum were inspired by samizdat — the secret distribution of printed materials that were banned by the state, as particularly prevalent in Romania and other formerly communist countries in the area. Hear them speak about their reasons for starting this magazine on the Stack podcast.
We’re thrilled to have Kajet join our lineup of magazines, with their original thinking and carefully considered design. Check them out if you’re interested in utopianism, translocal pop culture or socialist architecture, and sign up to Stack to make sure you receive their next issue at the best price, and as soon as it comes out…
