For its twelfth edition, Offline focuses on the critical issues currently traversing the field of art and design, reflecting a desire to produce differently.
Whether it’s by getting closer to political and social reality, from which artists and designers sometimes feel somewhat distant, or by integrating critiques of patriarchal and post-colonial legacies into the process of elaborating forms, or through a more ethically fastidious relationship with commissions. This twelfth edition of Offline focuses on the critical issues currently traversing the field of art and design, reflecting a desire to produce differently.

Offline is the ECAL magazine. Produced by students, it presents the events that have marked a semester – workshops, masterclasses, exhibitions or trips – through interviews and portfolios. Each issue is structured around a thematic dossier, providing an opportunity to examine an issue from different points of view. Finally, reviews of Bachelor’s theses complete the picture.
Led by Bachelor of Graphic Design students, the artistic direction is designed specifically for each issue, giving the print version its own unique character.
Some of OFFLINE's content is also available on the website www.offline-online.ch.
