Junk Jet & Occulto 01

Alice Cannava is a friend of the Blogazine and one of the masterminds behind Occulto Magazine.

When I buy a magazine I want something to read. I like it when the texts are long and rich; when I can see there’s an idea and a research behind the editorial project. I like an interdisciplinary approach, mixing up different fields with wit and humour without losing profundity. That’s why I have founded with Irene Lumpa Rossi Occulto Magazine, which explores new possibilities in the popularisation of science in connection to other fields such as the visual arts and parascientific theories.

And that’s why it was great to discover Junk Jet on the occasion of the event organised by Fluctuating Images last Saturday, January 22nd at General Public in Berlin. It was the release party of Junk Jet #4 (which I recommend to order immediately) including a DJ/VJ set by the co-editor-in-chief Asli Serbest, and was for us a chance to present all our previous publications (Occulto Issue #0, Sie Leben, Case da Disabitare) and the splendid Alessio delli Castelli’s collages installation Inventing Differences, already shown at his solo show at AC Galerie.

With the upcoming issue One, Occulto will turn into a book. It will keep its glossy outlook but will be three times as thick and will feature stories about urine tests and work conditions; sea urchins and MRI; oscillations applied to neuroscience and electronic music; delirious theories about how systematic blood transfusions can heal any mortal disease; possible applications of scientific principles to economy and much, much more…
