IT’S JULY 2019 AND IT’S VERY HOT. TISSUE MAGAZINE CALLS CLAIRE MILBRATH FROM THE ROOF OF SCHLOSS ISENBURG, THE OLD CASTLE ON THE CAMPUS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ART & DESIGN IN OFFENBACH. WHICH IN ITSELF IS ODD: USUALLY TISSUE’S EDITORIAL ACTIVITIES ARE CONFINED TO THE APARTMENT-COME-OFFICE OF TISSUE’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF. SOMETHING THAT CLAIRE HERSELF IS […]
Martin Eder’s series Martyrium depicts naked artists and actors posing in different ways which connect to the notion of zeitgeist as well as to art history.

He was nervous, he felt like a new student standing in front of a new class. Now he was sitting there, surrounded by painters, copywriters, photographers, graphic and fashion designers. On this evening, the creatives wanted to hear from him, how it was back then when he worked as an editor and what he thought […]
We teamed up with Dan Szor – lecturer, Fashion Image Making Styling and former art director and deputy editor of cult Nu Rave magazine Super Super – and his students from the University of Salford, Manchester. We invited them to examine our briefed concept of Antibody/Antiform. We are more than excited to share the works […]
“Perfect for teeth brushing or weed puffing, feet touching, street hustling!”. This mixtape will save your week, at least your Monday. It is compiled by one of Hamburg’s nicest, former Golden Pudel Club resident: The Speckman. “Speck” means ham. Don’t laugh it’s real and it’s nice, and his mix is here to prove it.
