"CULTURE CRISIS. Therapies for the confused"

Summer 2023.

There’s nothing new under the sun. But the promise of the new haunts us every season, a phenomenon that’s infinitely repeated. For those who find the past being called the present perplexing, the 032c Issue #43 by VICTORIA CAMBLIN and NICHOLAS KORODY (Magazine.Capital) offers a therapy session, with the hopes of putting things back in order. Meanwhile, LIL UZI VERT encases us in piña colada-scented vape while ritualistically performing on a trampoline for JASON NOCITO and STEPHANIE PEREZ (who have a double bill in this issue) and teaching CASSIDY GEORGE about finding truth in culture. In another story, George probes the legacy of PLAYBOY to see whether the bunny is still a symbol of misogyny or if it means pleasure for all. MAHFUZ SULTAN shows us that painter MICHEL MAJERUS, who captured the anxieties of Y2K before their current resurgence, is ever contemporary. In an urban ruin, SEBASTIÁN FAENA and RAS BARTRAM enter a dreamland with MONA TOUGAARD and VITTORIA CERETTI. After kicking back in Dior Tears for MAX FARAGO and RAS BARTRAM, CALI DEWITT chats with his old friend TREMAINE EMORY about overcoming life’s setbacks, which, the philosopher BRUNO LATOUR tells TOBIAS RAPP, can only be done by establishing a new cosmology. While this may be too optimistic for the science fiction writer PETER WATTS who spoke to HANS ULRICH OBRIST about irl aliens, artist DOZIE KANU, who strikes a pose for CASPER SEJERSEN and ELLIE GRACE CUMMING, tells CLAIRE KORON ELAT that what matters is transcending boundaries. Speaking of extraterrestrials, ESTELLE HOY shows us the ambiguous alien world of KLÁRA HOSNEDLOVÁ who welcomes VITALI GELWICH and RAS BARTRAM into her sanctuary.

Plus: chef Nobu, mechsuit designer Carlos Sáez, book dealer Isabella Burley, dermatologist Dr. Emi, and modernist Jerald Cooper join the SOCIÉTÉ de 032c; the X-files introduce the Gazers, Thieves, Dumpers, Swiss, Sheytans, Animators, Lords, and Futurists of the 032c.com universe; and, as always, the BERLIN REVIEW rounds out the issue with our favorite books of the season.

 


032c is a bi-annual contemporary culture magazine at the intersections of fashion, art and politics. Finding the new in the old and the old in the new, 032c invites leading and emerging creatives to collaborate on mono- thematic issues. It has been considered to be “dedicated to the celebration of ideas” by i-D, “revue ultra-pointue” by French Vogue, or simply as “the Berlin magazine that propogates an aesthetic of brutal elegance” by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. “The magazine fuses art and architecture, literature, urban studies and fashion in ways”, states New York Times, “that can make one forget how depressing a visit to a newsstand has become.” 032c is internationally distributed to selected art bookstores, fashion boutiques and newsstands. The magazine has been exhibited at places such as London Design Museum, Colette (Paris), GAS (Tokyo), The Pineal Eye (London) and the 3rd Berlin Biennial.

032c is a media and fashion company for the 21st century. Founded by Joerg Koch in 2000, 032c began as a magazine in Berlin. Now the brand also creates ready-to-wear collections and community-catalysing experiences on a global scale. The mission of every 032c production is to inform, provoke, and activate the imagination. The 032c universe is a place for freedom, research, and creativity, where fantasy is reality, aspiration is attainment, and everything is culture in the making. And, like any universe, 032c is expanding.
