Politically Umelec (or incorrect)

Umelec is a Prague based contemporary art magazine that publishes in four languages, including English. Above is the Chinese issue featuring the magazine’s publisher, Ivan Mečl as the website states ‘transformed into Chinese’. He is in China promoting and selling the magazine. The website further adds, ‘…selling magazines on Peking streets and getting a bit blind because of clothes-pegs.’


And yes you read right, ‘Peking’.
