Wir haben uns in Transhelvetica #59 ein bisschen von der Haustüre weg gewagt und sogar ein kleinwenig über den Tellerrand gespäht. Aber keine Sorge, auch in dieser Ausgabe sind wir der Schweiz – wie schon in den vergangenen zehn Jahren – treu geblieben. Vielmehr haben wir uns von der Ferne inspirieren lassen. Denn ohne die Lebenslust des Südens, ohne die liebevoll reduzierten Objekten aus dem Norden, ohne die ruhebringenden Philosophien des Fernen Osten und ohne die knisternde Erotik aus dem Westen wäre es im Réduit solide farblos. So sind wir quer durchs Land und gleichzeitig «In 80 Seiten um die Welt» gereist.
Featuring Zoe Leonard, Eileen Myles, Jimmy DeSana, Princess Julia, Olivia Laing, Simon Costin, Timothy Thornton, Mary Manning and many more.
Pilot Press was founded in 2017 to shed light on contemporary queer lives. With a focus on queer art, writing and activism from the AIDS era to present, its anthology series has brought together work by a variety of both emerging and established cultural figures. Previous contributors have included Eileen Myles, Wayne Koestenbaum, Zoe Leonard, Chris Kraus, the Estate of David Wojnarowicz, Sarah Schulman, the Estate of Derek Jarman and Olivia Laing.
"How do you begin to depict a feeling?" Describing her practice, artist Dana Schutz says that this is the question she continually tries to answer. In these very delicate times, it is a question we must also ask ourselves and, by extension, our readers. As part of the art community, like everyone else, we are trying to keep up with a constantly shifting reality.
The theme of this issue, put together back on the pandemic, is an examination of a new sort of figuration in painting that has emerged in recent years. That subject took on a secondary urgency, however, as authors and artists reacted to the current situation. Cover-story-artist Tala Madani worked on a special project addressing issues of fear, isolation, and illness by reporting on her own state of homebound reclusion, in conversation with artist and life partner Nathaniel Mellors.
Also in this Issue:Ingrid Luquet-Gad explores the boundaries between sculpture and painting in Jana Euler's new show "Unform" at Artists Space, which opened just three weeks before New York City's lockdown. Issy Wood offers a visual essay that reflects, among other things, on gratitude in the time of the virus. Franklin Melendez considers steam as technological marker in Avery Singer's seductive "hands-free" paintings. Natasha Hoare identifies Emily Mae Smith's paintings as "reliquaries of art history and pop culture." Peter Benson Miller writes about how Oscar Murillo's practice maintains "one foot firmly planted in his studio" while attempting to reduce the gap between art and life. Also in this issue we introduce two new columns: "NewCostume" on contemporary fashion practice by Matthew Linde and "The Curatorial Gaze" by Pierre Bal-Blanc in which he proposes a new model of multisubjectivity available to all creative people.

Ever since postmodernism emerged and reinforced doubts about the existence of a single, absolute truth, the concept of authenticity has fallen from grace. To this day, the loss of this implicit understanding of one truth permeates all areas of life, which is noticeable in an ever-increasing indifference to authorship and copyright—an attitude of “What matter who’s speaking?,” as Michel Foucault succinctly put it as early as 1974 (Michel Foucault, “What is an Author?” in Language, Countermemory, Practice. Selected Essays and Interviews by Michel Foucault, ed. Donald F. Bouchard. New York, N.Y.: Cornell University Press , 1980, 115.). No wonder, then, that the present digital oversaturation resulting from the unfiltered pluralism of an “anything goes” mentality (the communication style inherent in this technology is full of acronyms, emojis, photos, and videoclips ceaselessly courting our attention with flashy colors, animated as GIFs, or with added sound) has reawakened our human desire for something simple and straightforward—a core message, so to speak. Against the background of this multimedia form of interpersonal exchange it is consequently not very surprising that populist tendencies—concise, easily understandable statements instead of sophisticated wording—are once again on the ascent, preferably uttered by a strong leader whose competencies often (seem to) lie only in successfully conveying plain messages to the addressee.
The current desire for simplicity also doesn’t stop at the art world’s gate, as Danièle Perrier points out in this issue’s “In Focus,” entitled “What May Art Do?” By adding to and honing arguments presented at the 52nd International AICA Congress on the subject of “Art Criticism in the Age of Populisms and Nationalisms,” the author shows that even actions that originally sprang from political correctness might actually overshoot the target and must therefore be critically examined. In any case, Perrier’s remarks should encourage us to engage in a more sophisticated investigation of what is currently happening in the art world (and elsewhere)—which, of course, in turn means going against the trends of our fast-moving times by not offering society quick, simple solutions. Instead, we ought to call for broader, more in-depth, and perhaps sustained discourse.
The signs of the times are geared toward change. The year 2020 marks the beginning of a new decade—not only according to the Gregorian calendar: EIKON is also entering a new era this spring, an era of new proportions for our institution, as on March 10 we open the EIKON Schauraum, a 25-square-meter exhibition and discussion forum in the heart of MuseumsQuartier Vienna. The Schauraum will be staffed by EIKON two days a week and can be viewed twenty-four hours a day, even after the opening hours. Solo and group exhibitions with artists presented in the print issues are already scheduled for the first year, along with artist talks and panel discussions. This way, we hope to make our program accessible to an even wider audience. We look forward to a personal exchange with our visitors and to this new challenge, and we thank everyone who has supported us along the way: the Federal Ministry of Art, Culture, Civil Service and Sport; the City of Vienna; MuseumsQuartier Vienna and Q21, who are also on the premises. Cordial thanks also go to the team of BWM Architekten, whose minimalist adaptations (perfectly suited to the space) have created the ideal conditions for future exhibitions, presentations, talks, and panel discussions.
EIKON, a magazine established in 1991 and published by the Austrian Institute of Photography and Media Art (Österreichisches Institut für Photographie und Medienkunst), based in the Museumsquartier Wien, views itself as a platform for Austrian and international artists from the fields of photography and media art.
EIKON is a bilingual magazine (German/English) published quarterly. A major feature of the magazine is its close collaboration with the presented artists, which is also reflected in the limited art editions published by EIKON (Edition EIKON). In addition, special issues are published on various occasions.
Having received a great deal of attention since its inception, EIKON Schauraum is a presentation platform in the heart of the Museumsquartier providing free access to Austrian and international photography and media art 24 hours daily.
Additionally, EIKON has assembled a comprehensive reference library, where visitors are free to browse more than 5,000 publications about topics such as photography, fine arts, art history, and technology.

The cover by Tobias Volkmann introduces us to the all-girls world of the Panthers Cheerleading Club, in a small Bavarian town. As well as, to the Islamic world of AMAR, a women’s rugby team in Marrakech. We are then catapulted to Matera to see free running amongst the Sassi, then on to a thrilling ride in the Mexican lands of the Jaripeo, over to an impassive journey in the perverse paradise of armoury, and followed by the elegant setting of the pilota, a traditional Valencian game. This issue also features an equine odyssey in ancient India, and a colourful look at the cycling tribe of the Vuelta.
La cover di Athleta Magazine Issue 6 è firmata da Tobias Volkmann e ci introduce nel mondo tutto al femminile del Panther Cheerleading Club, in una piccola cittadina bavarese. Altro universo rosa è quello rugbistico dell’AMAR, squadra a tinte islamiche di Marrakech. Ci catapultiamo poi nel freerunning tra i Sassi della nostra Matera, in un giro emozionante nelle terre messicane del jaripeo, in un distopico viaggio nel paradiso perverso delle armerie e nell’elegante ambiente della pilota, il tradizionale gioco Valenciano. Athleta Magazine Issue 6 contiene inoltre un’odissea equina nell’antica India e uno sguardo colorato alla tribù ciclistica della Vuelta.
CONTRIBUTORS ISSUE 06: Alvaro Embid, Andrea Vailetti, Daniel Belet, Fika Estudio, Francesco Costantino Ciampa, Gianmarco Pacione, Jack Fleming, Jean-Marc Caimi, Jennifer Osborne, Jorge Gil, Laura Stella Motta, Lorenzo Fabiano, Margareth Gaspàr, Oliver Cable, Rise Up Duo, Tobias Volkmann, Valentina Piccinni.

Athleta doesn’t have time but it has space. In time and in sports. It is a journey in the principle of resilience, in discovering your limits through your body. In the name of the goal to be reached, the point to be scored, the sacrifice to be made. The glory is fleeting, and you are still chasing the chimera. It’s not always reached. And so, you start again, you return to the snow, you go back once again to the pool, you prepare your gym bag and you lock yourself in the gym. There is a perverse mentality to playing at a highly competitive amateur level. The beginning of a struggle that is fundamental to feel the blood flowing.
Athleta is about telling this story in photos. It is the essence of strength and the absence of failure. That’s something that just doesn’t exist, when you know that you’ve given your all. The desire to try when there is no money to be won, but with simply the idea of being the best.
Athleta is the words of sport. Texts that go with the pictures. Creating the atmosphere, giving a personal interpretation – a very personal interpretation. Let everyone do what they want. Read, look and reflect. Putting their own emotions in perspective as they think best.
Athleta is our idea of sport.

Last March, office celebrated five years in the industry with an unprecedented anniversary issue that featured ten unique covers. This Fall, the magazine is back with its eleventh issue, and a brand new newsstand in the heart of LA. For issue 11’s groundbreaking covers, office traveled to Los Angeles with photographer Joshua Woods to get to know “Bompton” rapper YG; photographer Jason Nocito rode around New York City with skater Evan Mock; Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang invited the magazine, and photographer Dexter Navy, into his studio to watch him create his explosive work; and Alex Lockett teamed up with Jersey rapper and Kanye West protege 070 Shake and her girlfriend, Sophia Diana Lodato. Artist Aya Brown tapped into strong Black Lesbian energy for another cover, while Bay Area skateboarding collective and zine printing press Unity Skateboarding championed queerness in the skate world, and photographer Robert Lindholm captured models Olamide Ogundele and Dien in creations by New York City nail artist Juan Alvear with accessories by Balenciaga. Then, photographer Timm Gutt and stylist Nastya Klychkova took readers to Russia, where they shot a group of teenagers hooking up in their cars. That’s nine.
Also in the issue is an interview with indie rock phenom Phoebe Bridgers, original propaganda from German conceptual artist Jonathan Meese, a roundtable discussion with curator Kimberly Drew and some of today’s most exciting Black voices in the world of opera, and an essay and list of plays that inspired Broadway’s new star scribe, Jeremy O. Harris. Artist Andrea Mary Marshall looks into the secret world of The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a controversial Mormon sect, interviewing a former member, Sarah Allred, who escaped the group, and photographing herself in their traditional garments. There’s also an unedited (and utterly fabulous) discussion between Luar designer Raul Lopez and former Hood By Air fashion director Paul Cupo. In addition, Swiss artist Pamela Rosenkranz invited writer Shumon Basar into her world of robotic biomimicry, and curator Noah Khosbhin organized a range of works by Mexican-born artist and tattooist Dr. Lakra, while photographer Gogy Esparza took in the wild costumes (and personalities) of the Notting Hill Carnival.
Alongside these features is the recurring Q&A series, office People, in which the magazine picks the brains of game changers like music producer Michael Uzowuru, Amsterdam-based design studio Odd Matter, shoe designer Pierre Hardy, pro skater-turned-actor (and ultimate millennial) Na-Kel Smith, model and Toxic Shock Syndrome survivor-cum-activist, Lauren Wasser, Houston Texans wide receiver “Nuk” aka DeAndre Hopkins, neo-soul superstar SZA, Brooklyn-based tattoo artist Bert Krak, AMBUSH and Dior Men’s jewelry designer, Yoon Ahn, and model Aaron Philip. For this edition of office Sport, photographer Will Grundy captured a crew of models sporting the latest from adidas, and artist Jeffrey Cheung opened up about his vision for creating safe spaces for queer people and womxn in skateboarding. Office Beauty sees an interview with legendary hair stylist Eugene Souleiman, and a glitter-filled editorial by Blommers & Schumm.
Founded as a print magazine in New York City in 2014, office is a global media network designed to subvert convention with an unorthodox approach to fashion and creative culture at large.
In this, our 20th issue, Dapper Dan is the everyman. We explore the sense of self in the individual. We explore the mood of individualism at the core of current fashion. In the pages of our magazine, modern masculinity plays out.
Our writers and interviewees consider disguise and identity, heroism and the antihero. Their thoughts are immortalised in our words. Our images transcribe a modern mythology in menswear.
‘I don’t like to look back. It’s not because I don’t care about the past’, says buyer and founder of MACHINE-A Stavros Karelis
‘You can make yourself into a walking hallucination,’ says writer and curator Charlie Fox
‘Maybe the instant gratification of sharing and receiving attention through the internet can be dangerous for an artist,’ say the duo behind publishing house, Loose Joints
‘Life is a real cycle somehow, it’s very weird,’ says founder of DIPLOMATES Matthieu Prat
‘I love what I love, and I don’t care if nobody else has ever heard of it. I’d love it if everyone loved the thing I liked,’ says writer Charlie Porter
What is the modern condition of menswear? What is the condition of man? You tell us, while we show you what we know. For we are what we wear, but only for a moment.
For the 5th anniversary of her.magazine we have enlisted both Kenneth Cappello and Peter Sutherland to shoot the covers with MLMA and Zsela the respective subjects. In addition we have features on Aoi Okuyama who starred in Giri/Haji, New Zealand based marino wool enthusiasts Yarn, young and exciting designer Marta Jakubowski and the hugely talented Marguerite Humeau are amongst this latest compelling instalment which includes 256 pages.

Toiletpapa is the first bootleg copy of the infamous Toiletpaper Magazine by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. Big fans of the magazine, Max Siedentopf and his father Eckhard went out to reenact some of Toiletpaper’s most iconic photos (and a few extra).
Monocle’s handsome special-edition magazine that’s brimming with big insights, global analysis and case studies to use to keep your company hale and healthy. We chart the choppy waters from first steps to successful scaling-up and bring inspiration, ideas and tips on everything from starting up to starting over.
Monocle’s look at the year ahead has landed. The Forecast takes the less-trodden path to find out what we can learn from the least lonely nation (Denmark) and the biggest English-language paper (in India). It also profiles the lively small cities we would happily call home (Boulder, Colorado, anyone?). Expect attire aplenty for the year to come and insights on the changing role of talent agents (they’re more important than ever), the buoyant fate of ‘bouillons’ in Paris and how Budapest became a bastion for the film industry. That and more besides are in Monocle’s fetching and forward-facing annual, available at monocle.com and on newsstands now.
Monocle’s worldly-wise June issue is a special issue for special times. We hand over our pages to 50 leading voices and ask what’s next for our cities, our homes, our businesses and much more. We have contributions from leading figures across the board; you’ll want to know what they say. Elsewhere, we’ve amassed the ultimate cultural to-do list, including films, design finds, books and recipes. Plus: five talented photographers capture the essence of their cities in a state of flux. Curious? Then dive right in.
We are delighted to announce the release of issue 7 of GARAGISME.

As green commentators speculate about the future of environmentalism in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, it is more important than ever that green thinking should grow and evolve.
In issue 5, we explore new approaches to ideas about climate change. Some articles propose big green changes which might fit into a ‘post-corona’ portfolio of green proposals. Some reflect on the outcomes of existing green approaches, and others interrogate the purpose and ethics of new technologies that aim to improve the environment.
t's Freezing in LA! prints bold new writing about climate change.
IFLA! is a critically acclaimed independent magazine with afresh take on climate change. Printedbi-annually, we find the ground between science and activism, inviting writers and illustrators from a variety of fields to give us their view on how climate change will affect — and is affecting — society.
We want to help untangle the environmental tensions and choices that humanity must navigate by platforming as manydifferent perspectives as we can find. IFLA! provides original, engaging and surprising content, widening environmental discussion and platforming essential conversations about difficult topics.
Victory Journal 16 explores the twin forces of RISK & REWARD. We dive into the noir-ish case of “Madam Ram,” the first-ever female owner of a major sports league, cast as devious and dangerous for her control over an all-male organization and ultimately accused in the case of her husband’s death. We find co-ed heavyweights in kilts hammer-throwing in the Scottish Games. We meet the power couple of squash in Egypt, dominating the game as husband and wife. Mexicans in Tultelpec light the running of the bulls on fire with their notoriously lethal fireworks festival. And reformed bank robber Nick Gage starts life anew with an unstoppable career—in death-match wrestling.
On the cover, Julia Ashwood, Aussie globe trotter and creator of the travel guide website The Vista, testifies in our pages about her confined experience and how to envisage the afterwards.

Was verbinden Sie mit Licht? Wir haben in unserer neuesten Ausgabe diverse Aspekte beleuchtet und waren zu Besuch im Yoga–Retreat Sutra House in Riehen, haben den Lichtkünstler Gerry Hofstetter, der unlängst das Matterhorn beleuchtete, getroffen und mit Eclipse Studios über ihr ganz persönliches Leuchtturmprojekt – eine Ausstellung über Willy Guhl – gesprochen. Ausserdem möchten wir trotz abgesagtem Isalonio einen Hauch Mailänder Flair zu Ihnen nachhause bringen. Wir haben in unserem Mailand-Special die jüngsten Produktlancierungen zu Moodboards zusammengestellt, eine Hommage an Vico Magistretti gewidmet und das Ganze mit einem erfrischenden Apartment in der italienischen Metropole abgerundet.
a+u 2020:03 Architecture in Chile – In Search of a New Identity
Located at the “end of the world,” Chile’s idyllic landscapes create a perfect canvas for Chilean architects to express poetry in their architecture. To many, it is the utopian holiday homes that brought Chilean architecture into the international scene, and examples of these houses were previously featured in a+u 06:07 and in this issue, the House for the Poem of the Right Angle (see pp. 24–33) and Loba House (see pp. 44–51). Following 2010, however, we begin to see a different group of architects looking into less individualistic visions. Guided by a moral compass, they engage with the public or take up non-profit projects – Ruca Dwellings (see pp. 120–123) and Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center (see pp. 138–145) – that focus on social and sustainable issues which came to a halt during times of oppression. In an introductory essay, Diego Grass, an architect and tutor at Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, shares with us his insights into Chilean architecture since the 1990s. He describes how having gone through years of persistent domestic unrest, the country seeks to forge a new cultural identity that would bring a divided Chile together. 18 projects are selected in this issue to broaden our perspectives into architecture found in Chile, and the many ways these architects respond to its landscapes and urban territories.

A snippet of Scandinvia showcases our next new adventure in the world of print, looking at a snippet of our favourite spots in Scandinavia including: Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Finland. We look at camping and hiking in the wilderness, city escapes, interior design, and bringing Scandinavian food into our homes with hygge recipes.
No matter the pace, our bodies are in perpetual motion. Issue Thirty-Six of Kinfolk explores the role of movement as a vehicle for physical prowess, self-expression or indeed social cohesion—it’s no coincidence, after all, that authoritarian governments place such emphasis on synchronized activities.
In a special themed section, we’ll push beyond the merits of mere exercise to meet those who are finding professional and personal fulfillment while in motion. We’ll meet the athlete (TBC: Salwa Eid Naser) set to storm the 2020 Summer Olympics, and examine the limits—and apparent appeal—of endurance sports in a special longform essay. Elsewhere, our fashion shoot finds us firing balls at models’ faces, and we tap the experts for five tips on moving into a more agile mindset.
Plus: Issue Thirty-Six includes a summer shoot set in and among the otherworldly salt pools of Pamukkale, Turkey, plus feature interviews (TBC: Miranda July) and a dynamic mix of long-form journalism, shorter essays and concept-driven visual stories that explore subjects such as what makes the perfect villain, why some things are only ever destined to annoy us, and what to do when waiting for bad news.
Delving deeply into home, work, style and culture, Kinfolk promotes quality of life and connects a global community of creative professionals from London to Tokyo. Since 2011, Kinfolk has become a leading lifestyle authority with a dynamic mix of print and online media, including a quarterly magazine sold in over 100 countries in four languages, daily posts on Kinfolk.com, bestselling books, plus international events and a gallery space in the heart of Copenhagen.
The issue comprises four separate and bound editorials and The Silver Post newspaper, which can be found enclosed in an envelope. Each editorial responds to a specific artwork by the featured artist, criticising and dealing with capitalist culture, self-isolation, loneliness, illness, and celebrations of life in light of a difficult reality.
Nine months ago, we decided to work with Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s legacy as part of our third issue. Today, this decision seems more relevant than ever. Gonzalez-Torres’s work could be interpreted to have predicted a quarantined society back in the 80s, long before the possibility of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, we are proud to present new fashion editorials as a response to the work of artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres.
About Felix : While Gonzalez-Torres referred to himself as American, he was born in Guaimaro, Cuba, in 1957 and raised in Puerto Rico. He moved to New York in 1979 and died of AIDS-related causes in 1996. Felix Gonzalez-Torres employed simple, everyday materials and a reduced aesthetic vocabulary reminiscent of both Minimalism and Conceptual Art to address themes such as love and loss, sickness and rejuvenation, gender and sexuality.
Contributors : Charlie Engman, Benjamin Lennox, Adrian Samson, Jenna Westra, Alexis Roche, Pat Boguslawski, Lyson Marchessault and more.
