TISSUE magazine—made by our no-fear, sexed-up, and free-spirited friends in Hamburg, Uwe Jens Bermeitinger and Melanie Jeske—has just launched its new website! Designed by German-Japanese studio DEUTSCHE & JAPANER, tissuemagazine.com brings you even more of the stories, images, and entertainment that make its combination of eroticism and moody affection THE politico-energy for today.
To illustrate where this might come from, Uwe has selected his daily browsing sources for 032c:
Daily Bread Diaries
I like a lot of things, but food I like a lot, which is why I enjoy photographer Robin Kranz and (food) stylist Volker Hobl’s blog. They’re friends of mine who not only share meals and an apartment, but also a little child. We usually meet at various food stalls at the market in Hamburg. It’s a rare but precious opportunity if you ever get invited to dinner at their place.
This is the blog of my homeboy and Purple Diary contributor Tim Bruening. If I want to know what’s going down on the streets of Hamburg, I check his blog.
This is the home of graffiti and street-wear brand The Grifters. It’s not really interesting fashion- or design-wise, but Good Guy Boris, who heads the brand, is a well-known, jet-setting graffiti vandal who brings together an interesting and talented group of street artists worldwide. If you don’t take it too seriously, it’s a totally refreshing, mostly illegal, and exclusive view into modern urban life.
When Red and Blue Start to Rumble
From the woman behind Kniepuder, which is “apparently not for pussies,” When Red and Blue Start to Rumble is an ongoing collection of mostly beautiful bruises, scars, and other injuries. Each picture on its own is really annoying, but the beauty is in the collection of them all.
I totally dig the work of French graffiti artist GSUF/Moderne Jazz and those who surround him.
I met this charming female Swiss artist last friday and she really has balls. Her recent work is based on photographs by Terry Richardson, which she cut into bold and colorful collages available to everyone for free in a downloadable pdf.
Come on, everybody’s reading it! It’s the prototype for relevant international culture and a cool gossip blog.
