“With Odiseo we seek a deliberately visual, unique and authorial vision of erotism.” Albert Folch, Founder and Creative Director at Folch.
Odiseo is a self-produced publication which “strive for intellectual seduction”. As Folch says, Odiseo shouts out the unseen: it is contradictory, mysterious, intellectual and intuitive. Odiseo illustrates the mission: the exploration of new ways of doing and seeing, offering a different vision on erotism, going beyond gender, seeking seduction through bodies and abstraction.
Combining erotic imagery with insightful texts and crossing the boundaries between books and magazines, Odiseo defines itself as a hybrid. Odiseo team don’t seek to publish current normative content, but focus on the extended present, retaining the periodicity but doing away with the obsolete. This complex and contradictory nature shaped Odiseo as a small, bi-annual hardcover publication. Moving away from the tradition of magazine mass consumption, Odiseo is a publication to be appreciated and read without pressure. It deserves quality time invested into its content.
“We wanted to make a progress in the way we understand and approach fashion, eroticism and art. To tell a story through another perspective without being explicit – and instead create many layers of interpretation to reach the people who understand our positioning. This is our way to conceptually tackle a theme, work according to a specific aesthetic and aim to make a statement on a long term basis – a kind of quiet activism. We are not using ads and sponsors which also gives us more freedom to explore and provoke through an independent idea of understanding.”
Issue 12 examines questions on nationalism, colonialism, replications, authenticity and artificial identity. So, what are you waiting for? Visit Odiseo’s page!
