Welcome to the future!
10 years later, in the 2019 of Blade Runner and Akira, or some other Dystopian reality, we find ourselves burning with a desire to exist. To be heard. To share the work/sweat/effort/spirit of artists and worldthreaders everywhere.
We do this in two ways:
-With a gallery/café located in Nørrebro, Copenhagen. Exhibitions, performances, workshops and conspiration of projects, take place in our Danish headquarters. We are reopening soon and will post more about this in the coming weeks.
-With a magazine: Originally created in 2009 in a vanishing New York that was also very sci-fi and where the environment was inspiring to create alternative spaces for our voices and projects to be heard without censorship. Well, we don’t need to tell you the whys, as they scream at all of us daily from every screen… so, here we are, 2019, with open arms welcoming your content.
The magazine is a quarterly edition in PDF/magazine format free for all to browse through or download. The first issue of 2019 is called THE FUTURE and submissions are currently open.
That’s the main info you were looking for. Right?

(Below, the original About Us text, from 2009… written in Long Island City, New York, after a visit to 5Pointz…ah, well, let’s not get too nostalgic.
…Read along. It still applies wholeheartedly).
WHAT ARE WE?
The easy answer would be, we’re an art magazine. OR AN ART BLOG, depending on who you ask. But then again, nothing’s easy when it comes to art, and we’re not really just a magazine. We’re world threaders in the sense that this is just a bridge for you to connect with fellow artists… we do not censor content and most of the time eagerly welcome contributions. The only thing we reject is content that offends what we believe in: equality, freedom of speech, rebellion, conscience and awareness. So don’t be a tight-ass and we’ll be happy to publish you.
Now, we know there’s plenty of art magazines out there, and we’re not trying to be competition. Yes, we’ll write editorials, reviews, critiques, etc… but don’t bully us. We’re doing our best to keep up with the storm. If you’re looking for stardom, keep sending those e-mails to other mags as well.
We’re very open to new correspondents, new content, images, music, video, volunteers, donations, food, shelter, events, good times, etc. e-mail us. We don’t bite.
WHY WE ARE HERE:
The initiative was created as an independent door to connect the community and to serve as a space for free expression in any field. To allow each and everyone of you to become the protagonists and the creators of opportunities, threading waters between New York and the world, in a timeless manner. Our goal? Rebuilding present. Leaving a footprint in the city and causing reactions. Wake up. It is time to exist.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Reaffirm your origins, be proud of your culture, of your talent, of your fears, doubts, and emotions. Share them. Urban intervention, poetry in everything we see and do, no dress code. The proposal of RDNY has been created as an approach of interaction. Information and rebirth through culture and technology, in each page, in each segment. Take this space as an invitation to step out of the box, break the format and the royal run around, and take some action. Show us what you’re made of, how your life is changing others, give everyone a chance to come in and be a part of your projects, your dreams, your story. The time has come to quit complaining about the big charade of past-due concepts, useless policies, traditions, formality, square fairy-tales. Throw them out the window and walk inside the red door. Undress code exposed.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
Give us raw, fresh, clean, simple truth. Question identity. Intrepid Self Expression. Reinvention. Rebellion. Recklessness. Conscience. Visual Eloquence. (and all that good stuff). All we ask for is to finally see art frolicking with reality. We exist.
