renk. is a magazine with a focus on People of Color and especially the German-Turkish community, covering topics such as diversity, culture and art. “renk”, that’s Turkish and means “color”, in English. The print edition of the magazine is published once a year in addition to the online magazine. The second issue of the magazine deals with the subject of “double standards”.
As the first German-Turkish magazine, renk. combines a highly creative aspiration with a mandate of advocacy beyond current integration policy: "We show that exceptions are the rule and we want to break away from clichés. Clichés always creates a exceptional status, which can only depict a generic minority which is not suitable as a role model for the majority of for example German-Turkish youth. At renk., individuals and subjects beyond the existing clichés, and close to the target audience, should be the focus. We see the platform as a place where individuality and bravery meet, and show the unexpected. A life that consists of more than just headscarves and Aldi bags."
