Junk Jet is a zine-jet, a collaborative format set up to discuss speculative works on topics of art, architecture and media.
Junk Jet is an irregular series of medial events, and a low-fi paper publication (including irrational special gifts) on a non-commercial scale edited by Asli Serbest and Mona Mahall (m-a-u-s-e-r) and published by their own igmade.edition.
Junk Jet is interested in counter works (and counter counter works) of counter aesthetics, tunneling practices that show lack of any irony or fiction. It is about wild forms and found objects, about weird theories and (small) narratives, anti-fashions and non-styles, about exploring do-it-yourself works, accidental outcomes, deviant and normal aesthetic forms that result from jammed common practices, misused media, and subverted customary tools. It is about cultivating an anti heart by “introducing noise to signal”. Whereas n°1 experiments with the topic of failure, or better: noise, n°2 is especially into architectural and spatial works. The n°3 flux us! flux you! issue focuses on temporary types, on stable happenings and unstable thoughts: boogie buildings, rolling rocks, flying architectures, provisory pyramids, lifted cellars and dug in landmarks, curtains, mobiles, house boats, bubbles, zeppelins, flying saucers ... The n°4 deals with making something out of nothing and contains works that move from mumbo-jumbo to real magic and back. The current issue n°5 is an archive impossible with reflecting net.heart of internet culture. It transfers internet things from their digital space into a paper jet. n°6 here and where issue is all about the local forms and spaces with in the global culture.
