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

  • Life Exists: Theaster Gates’ Black Image Corporation

    Theaster Gates' “The Black Image Corporation” presents photographs from the holdings of Chicago’s Johnson Publishing Company, a sprawling archive that shaped “the aesthetic and cultural languages of contemporary African American identity.” Gates approached the project as a celebration and activation of the black image in Milan through photographs of women photographed by Moneta Sleet Jr. and Isaac Sutton – of black entrepreneurship and legacy-making. “Life exists” in the Johnson archive, he says, just as it exists and should be honored in other places of black creativity.More
  • FRIDA ESCOBEDO: The Era of the Starchitect is Over

    Rising Mexican architect Frida Escobedo is relentlessly inquisitive, eschewing stylistic constants in favour of an overriding preoccupation with shifting dynamics. Personal curiosity is the driving force behind her practice, which makes he an outlier in a profession dominated by extroverted personalities keen on making bold assertions. "I think it really is a generational shift," Escobedo says. "The idea of the starchitect making grand gestures with huge commissions is over."More
  • “I live a hope despite my knowing better”: James Baldwin in Conversation With Fritz J. Raddatz (1978)

    Born in Berlin in 1931, editor and writer Fritz J. Raddatz relied on food delivered by African American GIs after the death of his parents. To Baldwin he was an “anti-Nazi German who has the scars to prove it.” Debating his return to the USA after 25 years, Baldwin explores the political climate in America at the end of the 1970s in a conversation at home in Saint-Paul-de-Vence.More
  • House as Archive: James Baldwin’s Provençal Home

    For her new book, Magdalena J. Zaborowska visited the house Baldwin occupied from 1971 to 1987 “to expand his biography and explore the politics and poetics of blackness, queerness, and domesticity”. Here, she narrates her early journeys to Baldwin’s home and proposes a salve for its recent loss: a virtual presentation of Baldwin’s home and effects.More
