For the very first time, Kult is presenting its latest magazine issue, TOYS, in conjunction with its gallery show titled Choking Hazard: An exhibition about toys. The magazine is currently available for sale.
The world of toys has always been a hotbed of controversies regarding issues such as mass production, consumerism, and even gender. The decision to link the themes of both the gallery show and magazine was an attempt to present these conversations through the full spectrum of visual culture.
Over 80 percent of the 50 contributing artists have never been featured in Kult and were scouted through social media, local art markets and word-of-mouth. While some are fresh faces to the scene – The C Project (SG), Sean Bernhardt (USA), .G/FK/DS (PH) – this issue also sees work from seasoned creatives like art collective The Terror Troopers (SG), illustrator Ash Schmitt (AUS), and toy maker Anatoy (KR).
