Issue #47 of the South Korean magazine GRAPHIC brings together several projects by designers, design researchers, and artists concerned with contemporary social issues around social, spatial, and climate justice. They invited 10 teams to convey their research from different angles and areas, including MMS, Klasse Klima, and Futuress, among others. Each was given 16 pages to present their work. Some contributed a report, a chronology, or diary; others showcased transcripted talks, interviews, and even coloring books. Futuress contributed a preview of the Troublemakers Class of 2020 in the form of an extended content page. The contributions and essays by the various teams are not bound together. Instead, they were collected separately as brochures and flyers inside a box—a gesture that reflects the sharp rise in the use of postal services due to the coronavirus pandemic.
