Odiseo Volume 13 The Last Supper was born from the unlucky number 13 – Judas, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th to sit at the table. Born from this superstition, we look at how acts of treachery in many ways define the world we live in. Cheating, deceiving, cowardice – betrayal is almost entirely born out of trust, or love. Without one, the other does not exist. Revealing secrets, breaking a pact, a stab in the back, an act of revenge. We find shelter in the shadow of disloyalty; a thrill in the fear of discovery. The concept is timeless and inherently human, present throughout our history right up to the present day.
In-between body and mind, book and magazine
Combining erotic imagery with insightful texts and crossing the boundaries between books and magazines, Odiseo defines itself as a hybrid. With Odiseo, we don’t seek to publish current normative content, but focus on the extended present, retaining the periodicity but doing away with the obsolete. This complex and contradictory nature shaped Odiseo as a small, bi-annual hardcover publication. Moving away from the tradition of magazine mass consumption, Odiseo is a publication to be appreciated and read without pressure. It deserves quality time invested into its content.
