Producing a magazine: What the association does

European Utopia e.V. is a non-profit organisation for the promotion of research, education, art and culture. As an important contribution to further our goals: The association plans to publish the multilingual European magazine from the beginning of 2022 (depending on funding and the Corona situation). Europe’s media landscape has so far been unnecessarily national. The European Utopia magazine aims to change that: It will start small, but in the long run it will help to create and address a common European public - with high-quality journalistic stories from Europe and the world, told from a transnational perspective.

“The aimless man suffers his fate, the purposeful one
shapes it.”

Immanuel Kant

Thinking ahead and exploring utopias

In addition, European Utopia e.V. organises its own cultural events and promotes existing art and research projects that deal with social and political models for the future. Democracies around the world are in danger of losing their vitality and exemplary function. They are threatened from within and without. Creativity and basic research are needed to open up ways forward.

Making Europe nicer: This is how the magazine té is supposed to work

té will be a journalistically sophisticated magazine dedicated to contemporary European topics in reports, interviews, essays, photographs and illustrations. The multilingual magazine will connect readers across Europe and contribute to breaking down borders - first in minds.

Journalism with attitude and without commercial pressure

The media in Europe today are predominantly national or even nationalistic, both in terms of organisation and content. , on the other hand, will be free, created on a voluntary basis, will not have to make a profit - and can thus make full use of press freedom, be creative and challenging. , the magazine, will create an overarching space in which the utopia of a united, people-friendly Europe is already real and present.

Seven things you should know about our magazine

For the joy of journalism 

The text and picture editors, graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and authors who contribute to té mostly work full-time in the media industry. But there, under normal market conditions, it is hardly possible for them to produce new quality magazines with attitude and substance. Those who work for turn their profession into a hobby, so to speak - out of European conviction and for the fun of demanding magazine journalism.

For utopias and against despondency

With té, European Utopia e.V. not only promotes a better Europe, but at the same time wants to test whether a well-made magazine can still find its audience. This experiment is only possible because there are no personnel costs in the editorial office and the project does not have to make a profit. Only expenses such as printing, travel and licensing costs have to be refinanced through donations and membership fees.

serves the purpose of European Utopia e.V. twice over: the magazine will network people and encourage them to dare more transnational Europe, more liberté, egalité and fraternité. And at the same time, the emergence of té itself has something utopian about it - it is a beacon of light against the widespread despondency in the media market.
