About magazine

The project

Cercle is an independent and thematic magazine published once a year. Every year, a new issue. Each issue, a new topic. Cercle tries to gather information around one main topic and to propose a support that values ​​contemporary artistic creation, culture and science.

At the core of the project was the observation that social networks were an important part of our lives and that digital development allowed a free and fast exchange of information and images. We therefore wanted to take advantage of these circulatory images and information and aggregate them according to a simple process: restricted selection, printing and publish. Cercle Magazine focuses on the idea of ​​mustering professional, literary, visual, scientific and artistic aspects of one theme per issue, and to propose an inquisitive, playful but also a demanding and inspiring magazine.

So far, Cercle Magazine has received support from Fondation Aquatic Show, Bruno Chaussignand, Syndicat Potentiel, ArteESAD ValenciennesESAM Caen, HEAR Strasbourg, LISAA Strasbourg, Dim Sum Sam, SAFI Maison & Objets, Intuit Lab Paris School, Naomi Goodsir, Centre National du Livre, Direction Régionale des affaires Culturelles, Région Grand Est and from Strasbourg Eurométropole.
