NO BUSINESS MAGAZINE
Our interactions with art, especially the process and concept, have become fleeting. In a world where what we see is driven by “want” and “aesthetic ownership”, No Business Magazine explores the stories behind art-making and the artists.
The first issue visits identity in various forms and concepts: how identity has formed art or art choices; how choices or art impact identity; or how an identity is formed and presented through concepts in art. The people featured in Identity touch on very different things, from photographing a Burmese refugee community in Zomi Town aka Tulsa, a popular American sport influencing art practices, exploring identity as an outsider, looking at hybrid identity through art, how fan fiction manifests itself in art, to finding community within a subculture. So, we decided to use these ideas to inspire our approach for designing the whole publication.
