The newest edition of the feminist magazine FETT is out in stores now, featuring an interview with KUKLOS-artist Rasmus Hungnes (from the duo Ringstad ≠ Hungnes), emphasizing the use of explicit pornography in his art. The interview mainly revolves around works and reflections from Rasmus' solo-career, but also displays two pieces from our collaboration - the poster for KUKLOS Border 1.0, Galleri Split, Bergen, 2014 and Untitled*, 2014.

"-My favourite is Poseidon because he has to do with the soul and feelings of human beings. He is the God of the sea. I adore the sea. The waves bring me tranquility and they symbolize the ups and downs of the individual. After rough seas become calm again, there is serenity. At this moment, I am in a peaceful state of being.
-Was Poseidon your first favourite God, or did you…
-Yes. From the beginning. He called on me in the first dream to follow him on a trip to tranquility."
