Ignited in 2012, The Third Eye magazine evolves at the crossroads of different alternative, indigenous, grassroots and underground movements from around the world.
The Third Eye is all at once
A Magazine currently based in the Amazon,
Uniting a wild and colorful spectrum of
Voices, Visions and Energies,
From the global North and South.
Now based in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest following years in the concrete jungle of London, The Third Eye presents stories of individuals and communities from the global North and South, who are at the forefront of imagining, dreaming, and actively creating alternatives and solutions to the spiritual and ecological crisis we face on this overstressed planet in the 21st century.
Contributors to The Third Eye come from around the world, they are emerging artists, photographers, writers, mavericks and mystics, as well as pioneering artists and personalities such as Alejandro Jodorowsky and Yoko Ono, and inspiring indigenous activists and leaders such as Chief Raoni Metuktire of the Kayapo tribe in the Brazilian Amazon and Huichol shaman and leader Don José Ramirez 'Uxamuire' from Mexico.
Published around Infinity O’Clock
The magazine is distributed worldwide across independent art bookshops, concept stores and influential galleries including the Tate Modern, Palais de Tokyo and MOMA as well as spontaneous distributions along the road throughout Planet Earth.
The Third Eye’s magazine is an irregular publication. It is free-form and free-paced. It is published whenever possible and with whatever means possible. Click here to see the latest issue. Issue 03 will be a great new flaming journey!
DIGITAL EXHIBITION CELEBRATING EXPERIMENTAL, AVANT-GARDE & NON-COMMERCIAL FILM Presents independent films from the past and present. Inspired by the visionary works of filmmakers and artists as varied as Jack Smith, Sergei Eisenstein and Maya Deren, The Third Eye Cinema explores the power and revolutionary potential of moving images, documentary and visual art as vehicles of change.
The Third Eye curates exhibitions and installations. In December 2012, The Third Eye held a special exhibition in the heart of the jungle of Chiapas in Mexico, near the ancient Mayan city of Palenque. In 2013, The Third Eye was invited to Berlin to create and curate the exhibition ‘Manifestations: An Exhibition by The Third Eye’ at AKA Galerie.
The Third Eye aims to raise awareness on the beauty, creativity and diversity of the growing, emerging movements and indigenous cultures around the world calling us forth to honour the Earth and remember the Magic of Nature. We are not separate from Nature, we are part of it. The dominant capitalistic, patriarchal and extractivist system and its materialistic, individualistic, reductive worldview has put us out out of alignment with the natural balance of our planet, our host – the Living Earth, Mother Earth, or “Pachamama”, as she is called by many indigenous people in South America, revered and respected.
The world speaks of revolution, but we can no longer pretend that only the system must be changed. The mutation of the seed starts with our minds, the centre from which action emanates.
As artist ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY says in the first issue of The Third Eye, we are working for 'MUTATION'!
The Third Eye works to re-infuse a sense of Magic and Mythos into the world: to celebrate Dream, Spirit, and Consciousness as essential forces in the creation and construction of our reality and society. Without these, any alternatives will be difficult, if not impossible, to adopt or imagine.
We will translate our dreams into actions.
Let us welcome the immaterial, the invisible, the irrational, the impossible and the infinite!
