MaviMelek takes its name from Heinrich Mann's novel "Professor Unrat" written in 1905 and followingly from Josef von Sternberg's internationally well-known film, adapted into screenplay as "Blue Angel" (Der Blaue Angel in German) in 1930.
Who then are we?
MaviMelek is a collective publication in the form of an e-magazine, where words with of an alternative tendency are amplified, communal songs are listened, where the meanings of sayings are altered, where identities are quarried, where time is revised, where things are done openly by disregarding the rules, words are sometimes read reversely or are sometimes never read, where songs are sung together under same the blue sky.
It takes its life source from what is avant-garde to deeper "underground"…
Blue Note: Everyone who is willing to translate works that were previously published in MaviMelek can contact with us.
