Handkerchief 2 is on Excess. The second issue of the magazine shows the content of the exhibition “Linea de Vida – Museo Travesti del Peru”, held for the first time in Europe in Brussels in 2015 and curated by the Peruvian curator Miguel Lopez. It is a project - created almost a decade ago by the artist, philosopher and drag queen Giuseppe Campuzano - of a nomadic museum, showing the lives of Peruvian transexual people.
Handkerchief aims to be a tool to raise awareness and promote a dialogue on a subject which is still a sensitive issue in our society as is homophobia and gender orientation. Each issue is focused on a specific topic and employs color according to the “Handkerchief Code”, a communication system used among the homosexual community during the Sixties to indicate different sexual attitudes and preferences. In this way the content of each issue has a visual correspondence through its color.
The articles are written and designed by the editors, the photographs are asked to professionals who have faced the same subject using photography while illustrations and the printing are carried out by volunteers who offer to draw and print the issues. The publication is designed to be freely distributed and read both in a traditional way and as wall magazine, posted in public or private spaces.
