FUKT #19 – The Storylines Issue

Founded in 1999 by artist Björn Hegardt, FUKT, which translates to “moist” or “damp” in Norwegian and Swedish, is a Berlin-based annual magazine for contemporary drawing. 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 to The Words Issue and Fukt The System Issue.

This new release, created during the COVID-19 pandemic looks at the art of narration in drawing. Inside, you can expect to see a myriad of illuminating stories unfold both through drawings and interviews. Contributions from established artists Chris Ware, Toyin Ojih Odutola and Brian Rea as well as emerging artists Maria Paz and Xiyu Tomorrow among others make up this issue.

Speaking of the current issue, Hegardt says: “In times of global threats — from the pandemic to climate change, senseless politics, and periods confined to our homes — we may long for stories more than ever. Stories that let us see the world through the eyes of others and help us to make sense of it all, allowing us to remember and to imagine, to understand the unfamiliar, the strange and unknown.”

The storyline has been interrogated in a number of ways throughout the edition, taking the reader on a journey from the mythical, to the sequential and the storyboard. For Hegardt, the thread that unites all of the featured artists is that “above all, they are people who create drawings with beautiful, surprising, funny or sad stories. Like always in our magazine, everything revolves around our beloved practice of drawing.” [publisher’s words]
