Founded in Norway by the artist Bjørn Hegardt, FUKT, which translates to “moist” or “damp” in Scandinavian languages, the magazine is now based in Berlin and Oslo. 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, The Words Issue to Fukt The System Issue and The Faces 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.
FUKT has won multiple awards including Art Director's Club Germany 2021, The ADC Annual Awards 2021 - Silver Cube for publication design, D&AD Graphite Pencil 2020, D&AD Wood Pencil 2019 and was awarded cover of the year at Stack Awards in 2019. It has previously been featured on It’s Nice That, magCulture, Stack Magazines and more.
