Nebel is a publication on culture, exploring feminisms and gender identities.
Inspired by Virginia Woolf, the magazine's title refers to an anecdote in her essay »A Room Of One's Own« (1929). Woolf's fictional first-person narrator reads through the headlines of a newspaper and realizes that the domination of patriarchy cannot be overlooked; that it seems to control everything — except for one thing: the fog in the weather report. (»Nebel« is german for »fog«) — A reminder to embrace blurry vision and to accept ambiguity.
