OOF Magazine believes that “football is the quintessential communal experience”, achieving with ease the elusive goal of art: to make people feel.
OOF 3 deals with the quasi-religious mania which football sets off like a nuclear bomb in the hearts of people around the world. Focusing on Sam Taylor-Johnson’s 'David' (a video portrait of a true sporting icon) and Ashley Holmes’s ‘Panini Series’ (a set of reworked images reflecting the demonisation of black footballers by the mainstream press), issue three deals with obsession in its many guises. Former Spurs, Ajax and Hamburg boss Martin Jol talks about his deep passion for art collecting, while renowned video artist Paul Pfeiffer explains the 'terrible beauty' of football. Elsewhere, we consider the ghostly movements of Ann Veronica Janssens' 'Berlin - Barcelona', the obsessive solitude of Massimo Furlan, and the unyielding devotion shown by a hardened group of Dynamo Kyiv fans.
