The first issue of "Discontent" journal– a political, artistic, social and contemplative magazine, edited and published by Iain Akerman is out this week. The journal focuses on themes of historic and contemporary unrest, willpower and desire in Lebanon, Palestine and Egypt.
The first issue collection includes thought provoking essays, excellent documentary photography, archival nostalgia, poetry, graphics and paintings.
Discontent aims to pay homage to the revolutionary magazines of Palestine and Lebanon in the 1970's, and is inspired by that cultural time and ethos.
Some of the writers and artists who contributed to the first issue include Hind Shoufani, Rewa Zeinati, Rami Kanso Designs, Zeina Hashem Beck, Dana Barqawi, Ammar Abd Rabbo, Lana Chukri, Rami G Khouri, Mona Saudi and Ayla Hibri.
