    Fronesis (Swedish for “phronesis” – Greek for a type of wisdom relevant to practical action) is one of Sweden’s leading voices in critical theory. Based in Malmö and founded in 1998, they publish a quarterly magazine with texts from philosophers, activists and alike. Every issue follows a specific theme, such as “Crisis”, “Ideology” or “Movement”.

    The printed magazine uses a simple and direct layout that has stayed the same for all its now 55 issues. Covers feature the nameplate and theme in Eurostile, with a complementary image (sometimes humorous in nature). The interior text is split into two columns and set in Janson Text, giving it a feeling that is more straight faced-book than radical lefty-mag. Very much a case of “perfect self-aware dullness”.
