YUCA is biannual bookazine devoted to art, photography, literature, and culture. Every issue is a canvas on which a chosen topic, that we call our alibi, couples with a cross- cutting idea in order to inspire everyone who enjoys holding a book in their hands and looking at things from a variety of perspectives. We commission artists, writers, designers, political analysts, and even scientist to create pieces on which they discuss our alibi from their own personal point of view.
We like to approach the usual questions with fresh senses, to explore ideas and narratives that revolve around something —that can be as common as food— and use them to reconstruct meaning and create new ways to assign it. We welcome the unexpected because we believe that it will always inspire creativity and bring a myriad of alternate possibilities. There might be no certainties any longer but we’re ok with that because this allows us to open up our minds and senses to the unknown.
