Conceived as a publication that features everything in between — ideas, voices and processes that are overlooked and under-appreciated.
Brackets are commonly used as a parentheses in writing to add supplementary information — containing materials that are seen to be dispensable without destroying or altering the meaning of a sentence. The publication covers topics that in modern day, have become seemingly dispensable.
Each issue, we survey 16 individuals through a questionnaire — a single blank A4 sheet containing 10 - 15 questions on the subject. Their handwritten answers are published, unedited and uncensored.
