Words and thoughts cannot really exhaust objects or images. Objects and images also have their own limitations. It is this then, throughout the complex network of relationships between these elements – objects, images, words, thoughts – that meanings are formed and unraveled. Reassemblage is a posture, an attitude toward life that triggers the collapse into a work practice of histories, identities, images, sensibilities, dreams, hopes, and futures.

This was the guiding/curatorial principle of NOIA 02: to take a chance as the development of the magazine progressed, encountering the artistic and intellectual labour of the contributors and facilitating these perspectives to coexist within a single multifaceted territory, in an attempt to flourish a complex landscape.

Our articles cover a spectrum of topics and disciplines, from the love story of a rabit.jpeg with a sofa.jpeg to the visual research behind photographing metal scraps, the experiment of creating a form of analogical writing or the significance of queer cruising spaces.

  • NOIA is an independent, design publication born in 2021, during lockdowns across the world. As a reaction to that moment in which we were all stuck, they use boredom as fuel for fostering collaborations to source a diverse range of expressions and perspectives to create visual responses toward contemporary critical issues.

    They are a platform for experimentation and a laboratory to create dynamic forms of expression, presenting alternative solutions to challenge current establishments of thought. The collaboration between creatives is a powerful tool to ignite discussion and to counterbalance dominant, traditional narratives.

    NOIA is the Italian word for “boredom”.
