Other than the obvious meaning, it also translates “moist” or “damp” in Norwegian and Swedish.

Can I subscribe to FUKT?
No, not for the moment. Too much of an obligation for us.

Where can I buy FUKT?
Check under Contact to find out stores selling FUKT. Or ask your local art bookshop to order! If you have a bookshop, the best is to take contact directly with one of our distributors (check contact). Some issues you can also find by searching Amazon.

We do also ship directly from our studio, just send an e-mail to fukt@fukt.de and let us know which issue you would like to purchase.

I do great drawings. Can I contribute to FUKT?
Yes! Just send an e-mail to fukt@fukt.de with a link to a website or some samples of work (jpgs, not too big).

We do our best to reply, but it’s not always possible – we are doing a lot of other things beside Fukt magazine. Sometimes a reply comes months later. We do look at all the work though!
