COPY – Issue 1
Hard to believe, but this entire magazine has been created by AI. 🧡
‘This is COPY MAGAZINE – the world’s first AI fashion magazine. It embodies human creativity and technological progress, illustrating the limitless potential that emerges when imagination and technology match.
Creative Director Carl-Axel Wahlström embarked on a collaborative journey with generative artificial intelligence. Every prompt and image featured in the magazine mirrors Carl-Axel’s imagination, presenting not only apparel but also a narrative of style and originality. This underscores the idea that this technology doesn’t aim to replace human imagination; instead, it enriches and amplifies it.
The outcome redefines the landscape of creative partnerships, showcasing how the synergy between human ideas and AI technology can revolutionize and inspire innovative creations. This exemplifies the transformative power of innovation, marking the first chapter of an imaginative narrative that challenges our perception of reality.’

Errant Journal Issue 5 – Learning from ancestors.
Brand new to the shelves here at Unique we have Errant Journal.
‘Errant Journal is a cultural/political publication loosely inspired by Édouard Glissant´s notion of the Poetics of Relation in which he opposes ideas of centers, linearity, roots and dichotomy. Errant, meaning both ‘deviating from an accepted norm’ and ‘wandering’, represents a way of breaking free from the idea of identity based on origin and the possibility to possess a totality of knowledge. It is never the goal to know everything, to see and understand something in its entirety. Instead, a person who is ‘errant’ rejects the universal and challenges the idea that the world is transparent and explainable.
By being a ´journal´ we mimic the academic standard, while our content aims to stretch the limits of how knowledge is ‘officially’ and ‘correctly’ produced. Different Englishes, academic and embodied knowledge, intuition and the poetic all find their place on our pages. Although our background is in art, we do not see art as a special or separate category of human knowledge and production but rather as one of many options to consider our worlds. Our journal therefore plays on the phonetic of an errant journey: a kind of wandering that is neither aimless nor directed at a clear goal or on a well defined path.’
Book size and full of contemporary art, visual culture, and critical theory & practice.
Acne Paper – Issue 18 💕
The new issue of Acne Paper is created around the idea of a house with a fantasy collection of furniture, art and objects. Not unlike the ballroom scene of the houses of New York and the stage performances of the opera houses of the world, there is a great sense of theatre under our roof. Each room is brimming with talent, knowledge, ideas and conversations. The house of Acne Paper has nine rooms and a garden: ten chapters which features a photographic story by some of the most exciting image makers of today. Behind every door there is a conversation, an informal interview with ten remarkable people from the world of art, design, architecture, performance, literature and interiors. To furnish our imaginary house we have been searching through time and place for the unique: from the most interesting pieces by contemporary designers, to iconic items in the history of decorative arts, from surreal objets d’art, to ancient antiques and invaluable masterworks.

NOĒMA – No.4 Fall 2023 💚
‘In ancient Greek, noēma means “thinking” or the “object of thought.” And that is our intention: to delve deeply into the critical issues transforming the world today, at length and with historical context, in order to illuminate new pathways of thought in a way not possible through the immediacy of daily media. Noēma publishes essays, interviews, reportage, videos and art on the overlapping realms of philosophy, governance, geopolitics, economics, technology and culture. In doing so, our unique approach is to get out of the usual lanes and cross disciplines, social silos and cultural boundaries.’
