Following the launch, UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE threw the ultimate DEMOLITION party hosted by Pepito at 86 Orchard Street from 11pm – 4am.

UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE is a newly transitioned annual 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 which now comes in a sealed bespoke box and new coated paper stock rendering the images more vibrant. While the physical printed edition of UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE will be limited to purely graphic content the online website, unemployedmag.com, will be continually updated with exclusive content, including feature articles, editorial content, and the premiere of exclusive films. Offline, UNEMPLOYED will continue to host ongoing art and film screenings in NYC, Miami, London and Paris. The ISSUE 03 New York launch on February 13TH, 2017 marks the 10th event in what is an ongoing series of offline celebrations of the creative talent who make up the collective.
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.
UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE ISSUE 03, in its revamped printed format, is available in an exclusive quantity of 500 printed copies per issue, the idea of the 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. Rejecting the notion of “themed” issues, the founders behind UNEMPLOYED encouraged a more classic and chic direction for ISSUE 03 while working with some of the most talented young photographers. This issue features editorials in Russia, Lebanon, Estonia and Georgia. “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. I want people to put the pages up on their walls.”
ISSUE 03 delivers a new collective of emerging and established talent including but not limited to: Harley Weir, Emilie Kareh, Charlie Engman, Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Vicky King, Greta Illieva, Victoria Sekrier, Helena Tejedor, Gaia Marcaccini, Lotte Selwood, Hanah Amber Young, Omaima Salem, Pierre Ange Carlotti and more… These creators are given free reign to deliver content in their own medium for UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE. The publication sets no boundaries for the contributors but rather encourages artists of all mediums to venture down their own avenues of creativity and exploration. UNEMPLOYED MAGAZINE sets out to offer an unedited view of the world delivered by the voices of those who are woven into the daily lives of the collective of friends associated with the project.
Unemployed Magazine is available at select stockists in NYC, LA and PARIS.
