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.

 

Tim Bruening Diary

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.

 

The Grifters

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.

 

€UROMILLIONS

I totally dig the work of French graffiti artist GSUF/Moderne Jazz and those who surround him.

 

Céline Manz

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.

 

Purple Diary

Come on, everybody’s reading it! It’s the prototype for relevant international culture and a cool gossip blog.

 

Uwes Kiosk

Also check out my creative journey through life: the diary and inspirational scrapbook of an anti-established editor-in-chief, art director, wannabe photographer, and nylon-fetish man about town.

  • Thus Spoke Bischofberger: Artforum’s Eternally Swiss Back Cover

    An advertisement for the art gallery belonging to dealer and collector Bruno Bischofberger has occupied the back cover of every issue of Artforum since April 1987. Seen out of context and en masse, the eternally Swiss contents of these promotions at first appear idiosyncratic; upon further scrutiny, however, they seem insane.More

  • Salty, Litigious, Iconoclastic: DAVID SIMON on TV as discourse

    With “The Wire,” DAVID SIMON accomplished the unlikely feat of captivating both West ­Baltimore bruisers and The New Yorker subscribers for an hour a week, over the course of six years. Twenty years into television’s latest “Golden Age,” as the creative blueprint pioneered by Simon and shows like The Sopranos unfurls into an endless stream of content from Amazon and Netflix, we revisit our 2011 interview with Simon from 032c Issue 20.More

  • CROSS-DRESSING IN THE WEHRMACHT: Unseen Practices at the German Front

    While collecting amateur photography from periods during and after the war, Berlin-based visual artist Martin Dammann would, “from time to time,” stumble upon photographs of cross-dressing soldiers. Provoked, he began to seek out more, drawn to the “kaleidoscope of emotional states” that they revealed: “Desire for women. Desire for men. To be a woman. To be elsewhere. To be someone else.” More
  • THE BIG FLAT NOW: Power, Flatness, and Nowness in the Third Millennium

    As a contemporary metaphor, flatness describes how the invention of the Internet has restructured global society. At its origin, its promise was a social revolution founded on intersectional equality and universal democracy. It is our contention that that promise may yet be fully realized.More
