Little John is a magazine about contemporary culture. It was born in 2015 from the meeting of a group of journalists, artists and graphic designers and wants to tell the dilemmas of the economic system in force through different levels of communication, from the essay to the elaboration of imaginaries.
The title is ‘Periferie’ – suburbs. In this chapter we discuss about how capitalism consumes cities by obliterating all the diversities and pushing them towards the borders. We can find suburbs not only in the cities, suburbs are in each remote: remote from culture, power and far from any apparent o real spark of vitality.
