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.


In this issue:


  • An Unnecessary and Excessive Display of Celebration by Juno Calypso on the cover, plus her new football-inspired series inside
  • Art historian Ben Street on the history of pink in art
  • Eddy Frankel searches for the truth in the myth surrounding Arsenal’s 1992 North Bank Mural
  • Mark Wallinger shares stories about the role of football in his life and work
  • Rosemary Waugh checks out René Magritte’s La Représentation and questions the validity of VAR’s hyper-truthful version of events
