DT500 MAG uses a form of Fanzine but is also an artisan hybrid-studio, creative space and mainly a public portraiture. The purpose of our editorial program is to portrait the intimate and true moments of emerging and established artists, creatives, activists and progressive thinkers giving them a scene for free expression. DT500 Mag is a club to meet and recognize controversial creative individuals.

DT500 MAG is about the intimate stories of uncertain and eccentric individuals who celebrate the collective inventiveness and freedom that the seemingly simple act of being different provides. The project shapes a historical and creative context for the experience of eccentricity and the great notion of the future where self-expression and creative freedom is not just celebrated but actively encouraged.
