Pulse Berlin
since 2005


Pulse is a Berlin-based project that started in the autumn of 2004 when an international group of writers, designers, artists, and journalists gathered together with the dream of creating a forum for discussion that would connect our diverse countries and disciplines. We wanted to engage in serious thought together and do it from a place of inspiration rather than obligation.

Over the past ten years, even as the project has evolved and changed, Pulse has remained an open community sharing and discussing the questions, challenges and comforts that fill our hearts and thoughts. The magazine we print is more of an art object than a commercial enterprise. And the wider project is unabashedly idealistic in its hope to transcend geographical, social, and intellectual borders. The celebrated and influential voices gathered here have taught, inspired and instigated us over the years. Thank you to everyone who has participated and kept this project thriving. Working together with you has opened conversations that have shaped our lives and connected us across time zones, lifestyles, and beliefs. We look forward to our redesign and the launch of our next collective printed work.
