FUKT Magazine, one of the world’s leading, engaging and inspiring drawing magazine returns for its 20th edition. This new anniversary release looks at the art of portraits in drawing.

While creating portraits is as old as humanity, what does that mean today, especially in the age of selfies and social media? After 2 years of a global pandemic and people hidden behind masks FUKT Issue #20 explores and celebrates the human face. Featuring drawings by 34 contemporary artists, we delve into the world of portraiture and the face in contemporary art. Inside the magazine, you’ll discover a range of perspectives and topics, from face blindness, courtroom drawings and lockdown portraits to facial recognition – a selection of drawing positions that present a unique take on the face. 

The cover comes in variations of 24 different printed faces. When unwrapped, that loose sheet of paper reveals an empty face on the cover. You can scribble, draw a portrait, simple or elaborate, anything is possible. We would love to see the faces you draw, so don’t hesitate to upload them to social media, tag us @fukt_magazine, or email us a photo of the cover with your drawing.

A comic album once discarded from a public library and later found on the street by the artist on his way to his studio is transformed into a series of abstract collages. Using simple cut and paste tactics a collection of science fiction narratives is reorganised into images drifting away from definition to be reproduced as Risograph prints on the pages of Flashback Gordon.

Forms of Migration explores the potential of literary and aesthetic forms of expression to shape our understanding of transnational migration processes. The volume emphasises form because it is often the compositional structure and rhetoric of texts and images – their literary nature and formal qualities – that impact readers and beholders, opening up new interpretations of im/migrant experiences and identities.

Addressing im/migrant forms of expression around the globe, this rich, illustrated collection includes poetry, creative nonfiction, interviews, analyses of diasporic fashion, cinema, and mixed media installations, as well as performances turned into writing, photographic work, collages, and drawings. Forms of Migration shows us how to apprehend migration differently, through innovative storytelling, offering opportunities to confront the complexity of migration processes.

Contributors: Ömer Alkin, Salma Ahmad Caller, Reine Chahine, Chaza Charafeddine, Karolina Golimowska, Piotr Gwiazda, Ikram Hili, Ronaldo Lopes de Oliveira, Stefan Maneval, Lisa Marchi, Stephanie Misa, James Nguyen, Enaya Othman, Matthias Pasdzierny, Anne Quéma, Jennifer A.
