Kaleidoscope, Issue 33 – AW18

225 SEK
Sold out.

At the core of a platform that includes an exhibition space and an independent publishing house, Kaleidoscope is an international quarterly of contemporary art and culture founded in 2009 in Milan. Distributed worldwide on a seasonal basis, it has gained widespread recognition as a trusted and timely guide to the present (but also to the past and possible futures), unique in its interdisciplinary and unconventional approach.

In this issue:

  • In an exclusive photo story by Richard Anderson, two landmark buildings by modernist architect Mies van der Rohe provide the setting for the Chicago-native designer VIRGIL ABLOH to state his manifesto for “streetwear as the next global art movement”—a sentiment among young people, a way of making across disciplines, and ultimately a new Renaissance foregrounding collaboration and breaking the barrier between high culture and real life. This major cover story is completed by an interview by Alessio Ascari, an essay by Kimberly Drew, and a “catalogue raisonné” of the designer’s works and collaborations to date.

 

  • Nick Sethi’s portrait introduces an extensive monographic File—comprising an essay by Adriana Blidaru and an interview by Andrea Lissoni—dedicated to Korakrit Arunanondchai. With characters and symbols borrowed from Buddhist myth, the Thai-born, New York-based artist reflects on the duality of animism and technology, activating collective emotions through a ceremonial togetherness. The cover story on Arunanondchai is also part of a theme survey, NEW NEW AGE, taking stock of different threads of inquiry, across the work of contemporary artists, into spiritual and esoteric dimensions. From underground cults, digital utopianism and cyber-religion, to a reconsideration of traditional iconography or the mystical possibilities of abstraction, artists continue to express an interest in mythological symbols, ritualized spaces, transcendence, and the sublime. Featuring interviews with artists Lucy Dodd (by Ruba Katrib), Camille Henrot (by Stuart Comer), Julien Nguyen (by Franklin Melendez), and Timur Si-Qin (by Ben Vickers).

 

  • Having grown up within the underground Bronx punk community, and gaining a public stage at a time when transgender and gender-nonconforming people are fighting to see their rights acknowledged, ELLE PÉREZ talks with Jagdeep Raina about the process of making a portrait—an open conversation with the subject, carrying the traces of the artist’s diasporic experience.

 

  • A downtown NYC legend who moved from L.A. in the early 1980s, KEMBRA PFAHLER fronts a death punk metal band in blue body paint and a bouffant black wig, and makes her own art by the tenet of “Availabilism” to use whatever’s around. Here, she talks to Jeffrey Deitch about her inspirations, from beach culture to Japanese Noh theater, and her main impetus: a different paradigm of female beauty.
