Editorial


Sauer is born from a shared vision and a friendship, we are both Berlin-based foreigners living creative-driven lifestyles. We aim to create a media outlet that showcases the voices and views of the broad spectrum of femininities.

We're moving away from mass media, its generic yin paradigm and its vulgar use of tokenism. We wish to portray a more real, personal and intimate perspective. Mainly, we look forward to expanding discussions and developing positive and productive ways of thinking. Borderless and ageless, our team of womxn writers, designers, artists and contributors will regularly give their opinion on a topic of their choice through their preferred means of communication.

As we believe ideas can be expressed in many creative ways; every month, we will select a word and make an open call for submissions

This first issue was supposed to be published on paper, but because of the health crisis, we decided to move it online. We maintained and contrasted the initial articles with those written during lockdown.

The red dress: or filling the Feminine from within

~ by Mirjam Grupp
Recently, I moved into my new home. After two years of moving constantly and living out of two suitcases, I saw for the first time in a long time all of my clothes again.

Touch-less

~ by Mirjam Grupp
This is for everyone who is living alone, right now, and who doesn’t have a partner they are permitted to visit. It is for everyone without direct human physical contact. It sucks.

Nostalgia

~ by Rina Grob
Dear Diary, I am a sucker for nostalgia. It is what it is. So naturally what better way to spend this Christmas time than rereading my favorite books as a child.

Solace

~ by Anna Walczak
A story about cozy feeling. A long time ago a girl met a boy. He was not really the type of guy, who was meant for her. She was very rare, and he was not really familiar with taking care of a gem such as her.

Solace

~ by Savannah van der Niet
Isolation gives fruit to contemplation
realisation. We see spikes and charts
curves and arcs, and a dove
appears on the balcony bearing
no twig in it’s beak.

The feminine

~ by Mirjam Grupp
It was 2012 when I first came to Paris. It was winter, and I was sitting under a heater on the terrace of a café, drinking wine, smoking, watching the people passing by.

Politics

~  by Emily McDonnell
The word “politics” is one a lot of people try to avoid. However, across the world, the need for us all to realise the need to be involved in politics is growing. We spoke to some of our international friends to ask about their involvement with their current political systems, and questioned why they believe that politics is power.
