CornerFootball + Society – Vol. 1

 - Corner
Corner is a Romanian artist-run magazine that approaches football from an interdisciplinary perspective (anthropology, art, contemporary dance, architecture, economics, politics...). This volume comprises all contributions from the first six issues, published between 2015-2017.
Corner – Fotbal + Societate is a periodical publication that proposes a crossdisciplinary approach, taking football and its complex contemporary and historical context as a starting point. This material foregrounds less (re)presented subjects and follows its evolution and social determinations. Aiming to intersect the culture of sport with various fields of knowledge such as anthropology, art, contemporary dance, architecture and economics, it follows less discussed aspects such as horizontal organisation, representation of minorities, gender power relations, subcultures and the relationship between the individual, group and society—amongst other topics. Under the current conditions, where both sport and art are being confiscated by the media and transformed into commodities, Corner reclaims the democratic and emancipatory aspects of football, alongside a critical analysis of its functioning and reception modes.
