What's Afghan Punk Rock, Anyway?! Is a community, self-organised magazine based in Berlin, founded by Armeghan Taheri. This is the third Edition, since the magazine was started in 2018, which explores the topic 'Future'. Over 60 contributors and artists have contributed to this edition, from all over the world. The magazine is a collection of work that aims to bring these multi-faceted voices, stories and art together with love.
The magazine is split up into three parts:
1) The dreamy realm: the wishes the possibilities, the continuous struggle and resistance movements. Dreams aren't the impossible or abstract visions. Dreaming leads the way to life, it is self-love, it is deep knowing that something better is not only possible but deserved. This is to freedom and to liberation of mind, land, people and bodies.
2) Perception of reality: an exploration of our collective and personal realities that we bear witness to and how it shapes images, accountabilities and fights we project onto the future.
3) Cosmic Chaos: we feel cosmic chaos expand as time and space stretch, bend, loop, disappear and reappear. If time isn't linear then neither are we.
