From its seeds to its crumbs, this issue focuses on the meaning of bread. One of the oldest human-made staples, rooted in the dawn of agriculture and the settling of land, its ingredients both unite and divide, create winners and losers. We deal with madness and explosives, coincidences and intoxication, distribution and possession – and cake.
Within the format of a magazine, each page of Pfeil represents the floor, walls, or ceiling which together create an imagined room displaying a printed exhibition. Each issue is dedicated to a specific word, with artists invited and given space to work on and with this term, and to construct or deconstruct the architecture around it. Combined, the contributions transform into an organic display surrounding the leitmotif.
