Issue 11 - Books

Issue 11 - Books

This issue is aimed at getting more people reading again. As we live surrounded by advertising messages and a constant barrage of garbage from the television, we want to make 10,000 people pause and pick up a book. We asked over 50 designers, artists, illustrators and photographers to choose a book which is precious to them. A book which has influenced them and shaped who they are today. They have redesigned their chosen books to bring them back to the front of our minds. To inspire you and get you to pick up a book.

Issue 10 - Unbreakable

In this world that we live in, this age of recession, depression, technology & stress, people are becoming extremely tense and volatile, in an effort to combat this slow decline in hope and optimism. We are making an issue on the theme "Unbreakable".

What is Unbreakable?
It is an idea. An attitude. A symbol.

Issue 09 - Earth

In this issue #09, the magazine reworks the familiar story of a world slowly choking to death by its own hand. Artists from around the world are given free rein to approach the issue in any matter and form they desire. This creative license has led to an alternative presentation of an age-old pertinent issue.

Issue 08 - Food

As the world is facing a food crisis unlike anything it has seen in 50 years, we also face the conflicting problem of obesity. The spike in global food prices has turned nations into fast food junkies due to their low cost and ease of access. Small farmers are being shut out of business and being replaced by behemoth factory farms on a global scale. As food penetrates modern media with tv shows and websites, we look at the subject from a new angle. This issue of kult examines the topic of food and facts related to the fuel which keeps us alive.

Issue 07 - Neo Folk

Neo Folk explores the work of artists in Asia who have been rediscovering their roots and traditional crafts, by remixing and creating images inspired by their heritage. As a reaction to the bland souvenir art that is widely available at airports and tourist shops, these artists are using the same visual language of their ancestors to create a commentary on contemporary Asian culture and society.

Issue 05 - Fear

Fear is a distressing emotion aroused by a perceived threat. Some people can control their fear, others get scared into chaos and their senses run riot, causing illness and sometimes heart attacks. In an attempt to understand today's fears and it's many facets, we have invited artists from all over the world to illustrate the A-Z of phobias.

Issue 04 - Fortune

Why is there no 13th row on an Aeroplane? Why do we flip a coin? Have you ever walked around a ladder to avoid Bad Luck? Does Fortune mean Chance or Wealth? Are they connected? We ask you. In an attempt to analyse what Fortune means in different customs and cultures, we have invited 50 international artists to portray their vision of Fortune.
