Previous Issues:
 
Body - Vol. 2 Issue 7: 120 pages exploring the body and bodies, inside out and outside in. Bodies that dance and move. Bodies making waves. Body double. Bodies at work and working with the body. Using the body as an instrument. The body as medium and massage of touch and being touched. The single, singular body as the very basis for a ‘we’.

Interviews with image ingenue K8 Hardy, filmmaker Babette Mangolte, writer Jina Khayyer and documentarist Mariah Garnett. Essays by Derica Shields and Crystal Campell. Plus 7 Q&A's with healers, herbalist, and modern witches. Beautiful bodily artists series and last but not least – horoscopist aphrodisiacs.

Secrets - Vol. 2 Issue 6: A secret can be a private space for self-creation – or a shared site of pleasure.

We explore secrets in a plethora of forms and contexts. From layered accounts of medieval ecstasy to the unexplored sensory experience of smell. From camouflaged play to queer readings of astrological charts and the hidden history of house music. From a very analog point of view to the outskirts of the internet.

Interviews with art critic Linda Yablonsky, scent researcher Sissel Tolaas and artist Juliana Huxtable. Artwork by Melissa Gordon, Lotte Reimann and Sara Van der Heide. Other people featured are a.o. filmmaker Chloé Robichaud, astrologist Rhea Wolf and singer Zhala Rifat, next to a hidden correspondence between writers Carson McCullers and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, a registry of pseudonyms by Riet Wijnen and much more.

Play - Vol. 2 Issue 5: In a world with too many choices and too little time to explore, a play is an excellent strategy. Objects, roles, bodies, settings – anything can be transformed in play. Playing across time, space, architecture, beds, houses, lives, papers. Suddenly a chair is a plane is a story is an animal is an avatar is a new reality. Making up worlds, filming them. Surfing warm and cold waves. Playing with identities. Playing en masse. Playing to be free.

A digital conversation with performance artist boychild, writer Chris Kraus on beer brewing and BDSM, music producer and artist Fatima Al Qadiri on her 1989 haircut, Californian surfers by Eve Fowler & Mariah Garnett, curator Annick Kleizen recapturing the artist residency circuit from a hammock in Brazil, artist Jesse Darling paraphrasing Drake, musicians The Knife dissecting their communal experiment ‘Shaking The Habitual’ through the eyes of their collaborators.

Featuring Boychild, Chris Kraus, Wu Tsang, Jesse Darling, Fatima Al Qadiri, Jam Rostron, Marit Östberg, Hanne Lippard, Kapwani Kiwange, Maroussia Rebecq, Kenji Minogue, Mariah Garnett, Eve Fowler, Lily van der Stokker, Rachel de Joode, Mademoiselle Yulia, Katja Mater, Sarah Forbes Keough, Annick Klezine, Emily Roysdon, Analisa Teachwroth, Jess Arndt, Martin Falck, Laura Davis, Mandy Pernell, Amy Sillman and Jesper Strombäch Eklund.
