ISSUE I: Six Poetical and Dialogical Strategies

Periodikum is a biennial publication that presents a new reality by exploring wondrous visions of our inner and outer worlds.

Because we believe, what we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. (We didn’t say this . . . Plutarch did.)

Periodikum creates a pop-cultural kind of “universal poetry.” Inspired by the literary early Romantics and Symbolists, this universal poetry deals with the infinite, the limitless realms of human yearning, with the unconscious, with dreams and mysticism. It suspends the boundary between belief and knowledge, knowledge and art, art and religion. At the same time, it represents a romantic irony—as a self-preserving distancing from the tragedy of existing.
