Also in 2020 we stick to our tradition of sending out warm Valentine’s greetings to all lovers around the planet. Stay horny, play safe <3 Illustration made by Love Curly – “watercolour dick – new technique!”
Staying in touch with one’s family is often hard. Even the strongest memories can prove to be false. So why not just take perfectly set-up family portraits and misconstrue them actively by yourself? You can’t put your arms around a memory.

Blender is currently working on Mixtape 73. This is a very special one for us, because it was his idea and motivation to start the TISSUE Magazine Mixtape Series more than 7 years ago. So, from the mysteriously missing Mixtape No. 1 originally compiled by Blender (known as DJ Clap at that time) back in 2013 to No. 73 we are looking back to a great list of very special contributions by friends, DJ’s and producers worldwide. It was the mixtape series that kept the spirit of TISSUE Magazine alive in dark times of no future and no hope. So thanks to His Blenderness as well as very special thanks to all our former and upcoming mixtape artists. Coming up with words by Nadja Preyer and photographs by Ali Baba.
Here’s our contribution to a fulfilled weekend: Annika Weertz’s ode to her boyfriend’s butt. A very handsome exemplar that triggers the desire to knead it passionately. Over and over again. See for yourself and take a break.

EDITORIAL TISSUE MAGAZINE N°666FFF
SATAN, WEICHE! [Get behind me, satan!]
I saw the devil — everywhere and in many forms. That’s why the sixth issue of TISSUE Magazine carries the number of the beast. The added suffix fff stands for ‘fortune favours fools’ — our secret motto. TISSUE’s success explained in three words, if you will. The triple F also stands for Fridays For Future — for me, the only relevant movement today. Naturally it presents me with a dilemma too: why put out another resource-hungry print product when we’ve just had to realise that it would actually be best for the planet if we killed ourselves*?
— This edition of TISSUE Magazine wasn’t supposed to be, anyway. But, there are several reasons why it now does exist, exactly five years after we took a sabbatical from print. First of all: Eike König and his students at the University of Art & Design Offenbach, where an editorial design workshop I held, led to a three-week-residency that allowed me to work with inspiring fresh talent.
Secondly, visiting Japan in March on International Women’s Day when promoting our collaboration with Sister Tokyo was a big motivation. Meeting up with Chico of Neu Banal — our Japanese distributor — was the final spark: we spent the whole night planning this print joint venture, ready to be launched in Tokyo in November 2019.
— This edition of TISSUE Magazine is a disaster, too. It reads in the Japanese direction, so you have to flip the pages ‘backwards’ (depending on what part of the world you’re from). The spreads themselves still read from left to right, allowing you to turn the pages from both sides. There is no beginning and there is no end …
— This edition of TISSUE Magazine is jam-packed: up to 300% more readable content than we had in previous issues. And yet it’s still a highly visual compilation with contributions by regulars and fresh talent alike. As supplements, we included a poster by Martin Eder as well as a TISSUE branded oral dam — an idea our guest editor and co-founder Hans Bussert had some five years ago. By the way, do you notice that smell? Together with DL Roelen Parfums, we developed a gender-free fragrance to give N°666FFF its own olfactory dimension. It’s limited-edition too — since it’s part of the magazine, there are only 666 pieces available worldwide.
So please enjoy this rare piece of art, don‘t go to school on Fridays and remember Adorno — wrong life cannot be lived rightly.
