Founded in 1996 by Jonny Johansson and three partners, with only 10,000 euros, Acne was first launched as a small advertising and design agency in Stockholm. Acne, an abbreviation for “Ambition to Create Novel Expression,” is characterized as a creative collective that freely does whatever it wants, just as the name shows. One day, the company produced just 100 pairs of jeans to emerge as Stockholm’s representative denim brand. In 2006, Acne separated its fashion endeavors to create an independent brand called Acne Studios, and since then has consolidated its position as a major contemporary fashion house that crosses between the realms of fashion, culture and art.
032c is a contemporary culture and fashion magazine that publishes thoughtful and deep materials.

Mykhailo Boychuk is a Ukrainian painter, known as a monumentalist, who in 1910 surprised the demanding Paris at the “Salon des Indépendants”. He used tempera instead of oil, returned to historical heritage, chose collective creativity instead of individual one and brevity of art form instead of realistic reproduction. The French called these innovations “Renovation Byzantine”, among scholars it is known as the school of Ukrainian monumentalism or boychukism. This was the last attempt to implement the great style in Ukraine. The rebel by nature, Mykhailo Boychuk set himself a clearly defined goal – to reform the Ukrainian art. The new Ukrainian style was to become truly national and had to deeply enter the everyday life of people.
