Product Description

BORN OUT OF ODD CIRCUMSTANCES.

Across the world, we find ourselves in a common landscape that - barely a year ago - only a few scientists and science-fiction enthusiasts could have imagined. Our reality is the stuff of post-apocalyptic fantasy, except there has been no apocalypse, and there is no ‘post’. We are living through precedented unprecedented times - the stuff we had relegated to fiercely-repressed history, only for it to emerge chaotic amid a new strain of technology, travel and international transportation.

When years of global expansion concertina into the four walls of our too-frequently unstable homes within weeks, where do our minds go? Our bodies can stay trapped at home: that much is, if not relatively easy, relatively enforceable. But our minds, our creativity, and our ever-expansive imaginations, cannot.

In our first print issue, we talk about diversity in media production and the disruption of digitisation on the contemporary art market, about the fluctuating boundaries of subcultures and the inescapable nature of crime, about self-perception and oppressive external influences.

Berlin-based STUCK Magazine provides a platform - online and offline - for underrepresented artists from across the globe to present their work, and collaboratively explore both their creative practices and personal philosophies. By fusing the exploration of independent, contemporary art with journalistic storytelling we explore those subcultures which shape modern life.

‘Born Out Of Odd Circumstances', STUCK Magazine’s first print edition, showcases the work, opinions and personal stories of an array of diverse artists, producing a tangible retrospective of the moods and explorations triggered by the upheaval of the global pandemic.

In Issue 000, we talk about diversity in media production and the disruption of digitisation on the contemporary art market, about the fluctuating boundaries of subcultures and the inescapable nature of crime, about self-perception and oppressive external influences.

In today's ever digitalised and often deceptive media landscape, there is increasing need for a counterbalance: for an independent, low-circulation print magazine; one that uses art as an alternative communication channel to inform readers about contemporary social issues that are usually ignored by mainstream media.

STUCK Magazine pushes against the tide, creating a physical art object born from the digital creative landscape. STUCK embodies elements of print magazines that cannot be replicated by digital media: high quality paper, the integration of word, image and space, print-specific graphic design, as well as the collectible nature of a print magazine as a material object.
