BORSHCH is a magazine for electronic music on and beyond the dancefloor. Founded in Berlin in 2017, it’s a space to provoke open dialogues and challenge established ideas about making, listening, and dancing to music. Through physical and digital formats, BORSHCH discusses the artistic, social, and political impact of electronic music on contemporary culture in and outside the club settings. The print edition of the magazine is published biannually.

In BORSHCH #5, we enter sweaty basements and concrete cathedrals and explore the culture of darkness born out of protest. In unsettling environments, we embrace the shadows and challenge our senses with obscure electronic music. When do you feel comfortable with your discomfort? What happens when the lights go off, and the only source of illumination you’re left with is blurry haze or an abrupt stroboscopic pulse? Conversation with Deena Abdelwahed, Lucrecia Dalt, and Alessandro Adriani question the ambiguity of ‘dark’ sound and psychological impact of unpolished music. Artist portraits of Animistic Beliefs, Rrose, Klein, Ziúr deconstruct the dark areas where sins, injustice, and disquiet are as human and real as pleasures and joy. This issue of Borshch considers entering the dark as an act of coming home, to the cave where the primary source of life is hidden.

Jan Hoek, fashion designer Duran Lantink and trans sex worker organisation SistaazHood present ‘Sistaaz of the Castle’, published by Art Paper Editions, an ongoing project about the colorful looks and lives of transgender sex workers that roam the streets of Cape Town, South Africa.

Most of the girls are homeless, living under a bridge near Cape Town’s castle. The Sistaaz are eager activists, proud to be trans, proud to be a sex worker, and even prouder of their stunning sense of style. And they want it to be acknowledged.

A series of photographs and a fashion collection based on the girls’ appearance and their ability to turn whatever they find into the most exuberant outfits was created. This has already resulted in a fashion show at Amsterdam Fashion Week (a show in Cape Town in still on the wish list) and a photo exhibition in Foam Amsterdam.

SABAT is a three-issue magazine (The Maiden Issue, The Mother Issue & The Crone Issue), fusing witchcraft and feminism, ancient archetypes and instant art to paint a portrait of and offer insight into what the occult means today.

“Satanic feminism, esoteric influences on high fashion and celebrating the darker side of being a woman: just a few things to be spellbound by in biannual magazine Sabat.” – VICE

“Sabat is a wizard of a magazine and it’s such an unexpectedly fantastic concoction. It brings together two interests of mine that I never thought would or could combine; witchy themes found in 90s TV shows like ‘Buffy’ and ‘Charmed’ on the one hand, and crisp design and typography on the other. You wouldn’t expect this combination to work, but it does.” – MAGCULTURE

All three issues available to purchase through our website!
