Fukt Magazine No. 21 – The Unknown Issue
FUKT Issue #21 returns for another issue to venture into the realms of the Unknown. Featuring drawings by 29 contemporary artists from 18 countries around the world, we explore the uncertainties that inundate our everyday lives, the mysteries that are lurking in the shadows, and the vast potential of life beyond our own universe. The unknown encompasses us, concealed in the past, present, and future - veiled behind the facades of cities and within the depths of our own minds. The question of tomorrow brings both anticipation and a hint of nervousness as we navigate this ever-changing world. In this new edition, we delve into unfamiliar territories and the queries they raise. Our goal is not to shed light on the unknown but rather to blur the lines even further between what we believe we know and what we can imagine.

What is FUKT?
FUKT is a magazine for contemporary drawing. It comes without ads, beautifully designed with a focus on the visual, with occasional interviews with interesting artists and essays by engaging authors. The design and format are changing for each issue.
Founded in 1999 by artist Björn Hegardt, FUKT, which translates to “moist” or “damp” in Norwegian and Swedish, is a Berlin-based annual magazine for contemporary drawing. Each issue comes with a unique cover by Ariane Spanier who also co-edits and designs the magazine. From issue 16 onwards, the FUKT team began organising each edition thematically: from The Sex Issue on Dirty Drawings to The Words Issue and Fukt The System Issue.
