ABOUT UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE
UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE is a new biannual publication from a creative collective of individuals organized by the founders, Cecile Winckler and Sophie Tabet. The magazine, which is designed as an unbound single document in a poster format, is comprised exclusively of visual imagery and regarded as a collectable object of art. The online website will be continually updated and UNEMPLOYED will host ongoing art and film screenings. The launch event on March 24th marks the initial event in what will be an ongoing series of offline celebrations of the creative talents who make up the collective.
UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE, in its printed format, will be available in an exclusive quantity of 500 printed copies per issue, the idea of the physical body of UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE is to deliver a physical piece of artwork derived from the contributions of the publication which is free from limitations found in traditional media through the inclusion of advertisers, deadlines, or space. The physical embodiment of UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE represents, in the most literal of terms, the manifestation of the uninhibited voices of an both established as well as emerging generation of creative individuals tapped from within the worlds of art and culture. “The magazine,” says Cecile Winckler, co-founder of UNEMPLOYED, “is a curated exhibition of our friend’s work that you can take home with you.”
This circle of contributors, who function primary as friends and secondarily as collaborators on the magazine, is comprised of innovative thinkers across a variety of genres, from skaters to aristocrats, old Europe to the US, the contributors all capture the spirit of a generation through their individual craft and contributions.
