ISSUE # 18 The System Issue
Fukt issue 18 explores human beings' innate desire to create systems and how artists around the world interpret this subject in the field of drawing.
Many artists, for example, create their own system, a method with precise rules, in which they frame their creative process, which is like saying that a system can actually push the boundaries of their creativity. But Fukt also leads us to meet artists who are breaking with the system (primarily political) that surrounds them. An example above all? Jim Carrey and his irreverent and straightforward satirical drawings.
Politics is also at the center of the satirical drawings with which the artist Pablo Helguera criticizes the American judicial system.
We also speak of the body understood as a system illustrated through the expressive drawings of Trisha Brown and Tony Orrico. And then so much more.
