Oof magazine believes that “football is the quintessential communal experience”, achieving with ease the elusive goal of art: to make people feel.


Blurring the lines between the two fields, Oof looks at football as a symbol for national obsession, passion and physicality amongst other experiences and emotions, and at art as a way of deconstructing this world by peeling back the layers of meaning. Issue three deals with obsession in its many guises.


In this issue:


  • Sam Taylor-Johnson’s ‘David’: a video portrait of a true sporting icon
  • Ashley Holmes’s series of reworked images reflecting the demonisation of black footballers by the mainstream press
  • The obsessive solitude of Massimo Furlan
  • Renowned video artist Paul Pfeiffer explains the ‘terrible beauty’ of football
  • The unyielding devotion shown by a hardened group of Dynamo Kyiv fans
