Purga is a saga written in South American slang. The march begins with a concept.

INTERDISCIPLINARY INDEPENDENT MAGAZINE (PRINT AND WEB)

ARGENTINA, 2014

PURGA

 

An independent magazine produced in print and digital format. As a project, it was born out of the implacable conversations with Rocío Fernández Fuks, where we asked ourselves what the place was for a new publication in the current media ecosystem. PURGA placed it's bet on reflection, and gathered original work and discourse. The first issue had a theme ("lootings") that served as the organizing axis, and we invited collaborators from different disciplines.

As a proposal, PURGA had a strong stance in two ways: interdisciplinarity, and curated editorial work. In this sense, both the contents and the organization of them were an integral part of the project.

In its first issue, PURGA published and sold out 300 print magazines, which were presented with a happening and exhibition in Granate Gallery. Simultaneously, it was published in web format.
