The Fourth Estate Utopias
The House of Common Affairs (HOCA) is a new, smashing journal about the Fourth Estate Utopias. It provides an opportunity to challenge the niche and yet popular field that exists in the overlap between the arts and journalism. HOCA invites a more diverse range of voices into the conversation with the aim to promote an international and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, as well as knowledge. It seeks to offer a space for critical thinking with the aim of provoking further developments in this field.
The Fourth Estate Utopias is the first issue of HOCA, and as such addresses the project’s subtitle, ‘fancy discussions about Fourth Estate utopias,’ and is about the role of visual communication in relation to journalism.
