TUNICA AS A GARMENT

TUNICA AS A MEMBRANE
TUNICA IS A RECEPTACLE OF INTERNATIONAL CULTURE BASED IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, WHICH ACTS AS A MEMBRANE TO CAPTURE AND SHOWCASE VARIOUS TALENTS; COMBINING DISCIPLINES, AND HARING IDEAS AND STYLES.
To celebrate our first anniversary and three past issues behind, we again present to all those extraordinary earthlings, with enthusiasm, this second issue. Just for this special moment, we printed a collective poster which includes the work of artists like Pedro Friedeberg, Micah Lidberg, Oriol Maspons, Ward Roberts and more… Jordy Van Den Nieuwendijk contributed a special illustration just for this issue of Tunica.
In continuous mutation, every issue will be spearheaded by different art directors, changing the scenery, not the essence. For this edition, we have relied upon the incalculable vision and expertise of our friends at Folch Studio. As a visionary prophecy, to have ideas fit in single and plural directions, we have that need for a loss of knowledge. We believe in a sense of continuous exploration, in the construction of a bridge between artists.
Tunica has the eternal and essential priority of communicating, diminishing the emphasis on who signs the artwork…we are against glorification and idolatry…we simply want genial people that can be found anywhere, art- ists from all over the world, wherever they may be. It is not necessary to be bohemian to be an artist. All are caught by this membrane.
We don’t want to change the world, we just want a world to live in. This is our idea of coexisting under a certain tunic, to revitalize… We will not stop discussing the culture and spreading information beyond the pages… as this publication wants to say: Long live Tunica!
