WIP / Risograph Printed A5 Magazine
Produced by CALACA and SinTesis Studio

EQUIS is a bi-annual, hand-bound riso-printed magazine, published and conceptualised under CALACA, in collaboration with SinTesis Design Studio.

The A5 publication serves as a platform for artists/designers/academics to address pertinent social, environmental, and cultural issues through diverse disciplines. We are committed to feature the work of emerging and underrepresented collaborators, facilitating meaningful conversations about the urgent challenges we confront today. 

volume #1 EQUIS: Futurxs Latinxs aims to envision new futures for the definition of Latin America: Its culture, mythology & political system; while also exploring diverse voices from artists, designers, activists, and Latinex academics.

Some of the notable collaborators include Desta French, recognized singer in the latinex R&B genre, Fernanda Alonso, PhD candidate at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and former Executive Director of the Drug Policy Program at the Center for Research and Teaching in Economics (CIDE), Edward Mendoza, recipient of the L’Oreal Professionnel Creative Award, and other Latinex interdisciplinary creatives including Cristobal Ayala, Jessica Panchi, Karina Casañas, Victoria Maldonado, Ana M.Flores, Anmy Pazos, Daniela Checa, Andrea Sarahí, Sophie Castillo, and Dante Saram.

volume #2 EQUIS: INTER presents creative encounters related to the three possible definitions of this word/prefix:

1) AMONG: occurring in or shared by, being a member or members of.
2) BETWEEN: at, into, or across the space separating (objects or regions).
3) BURY:  place (a corpse) in a grave or tomb, typically with funeral rites.

INTER compiles multiple pieces, projects and visual spaces created under a wide collection of geographical contexts: Milan, Bogota, Berlin, London, Mexico City, Monterrey, Richmond, and New York. The diversity of the featured voices represents a broad collection of viewpoints that allows the reader to assimilate visions questioning transport, religion, migration, technology and representation.
