Each issue of MATTE tends to feature just one artist, although a small number of issues have been guest-curated around a theme or functioned as catalogues for exhibitions. The publication seeks to provide a context where emerging and more established artists can benefit from sharing pages, and is specifically interested in (but not limited to) queer issues. Gorgeous large format full-colour magazine with no ads.

MERDE – Issue 07: Survival. Fall 2023 💚
“THE MERDE ETHOS:
A self deprecating platform embedded with humor and wit, MERDE reflects on fashion’s cultural landscape by exploring the creative process without a filter. With the aim to disrupt tired fashion narratives, each biannual issue picks a theme to explore – in all seriousness.
MERDE is ruled and empowered by atypical creative expression. We aim to feature the visions and voices of unlikely narratives from inside, outside, and on the fringe of the fashion scene, widening the scope of repetitive media that dominates your social feed.
A publication with reflexive intuitions, MERDE aims to satisfy fashion’s postmodern desire for unconventional and subversive imagery.”
This issue is full of seriously electric imagery, with internet sensation Quenlin Blackwell gracing the cover and features on model and writer Paulina Porizkova, American singer BabyJake, folk musician Matilda Mann, Alona Sobeleveskas bizzare nail art and loads more, along with MERDE regulars, horoscopes, and Ask A Bitch advice page. 💚
