Berlin Fashion Week Special – Culture Industry

bfw2017-culture_industrytransparentbuy-button-schwarz

If Berlin Fashion Week leaves you thinking you’re trapped in the industry’s treadmill of shallowness and blind consumerism, don’t surrender. There are exciting magazines and journals out there, offering a critical and informed look at the CULTURE INDUSTRY of Fashion. VESTOJ’s latest issue looks at masculine and male identities within fashion – weaving theory with prose, fiction and interviews in order to bridge the gap between academia and the fashion industry. With contributions by Jo Paoletti, Wolfgang Tilmanns, Ty Emmeca or Kenneth Goldsmiths (to name a few). “Everybody loves Muiccia” is the title of SYSTEM’s latest issue, offering (not only) in-depth conversations and editorials with and by Prada’s creative genious. A MAGAZINE, this time curated by Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, gives a very intimate and auratic insight into the inspirations and aesthetic values of one of the industry’s leading figures.

Berlin Fashion Week Special – Food and Fashion

bfw2017_foodandfashiontransparentbuy-button-schwarz

Even if FOOD AND FASHION seem to only have their initials in common, their relationship goes way back. Both are beautiful, deceiving, and an everyday form of expression. Think Marie-Antoinette. Or Lady Gaga. Or indulge into one of our Fashion & Food Magazines, if you’re not convinced. BRUTAL combines interviews, recipes and essays, making food beautiful and fashion yummy. FFF ZINE is the self-proclaimed ‘World’s Dishiest Magazine’ and wants to remind us that food, as well as fashion, ‘should be fun’. And truth be told, it’s a lot of fun reading up on Luis Venegas’ or Chris Dercon’s “Dish Troubles”. ALLA CARTA features interviews with inspirational people about fashion, design and art. At the table, over coffee, breakfast or dinner. Brain Food and Eye Candy!

bfw2017-patternstransparentbuy-button-schwarz

What’s Fashion without the magic of PATTERNS, FABRICS and MATERIALS? Get inspired with our selection of books diving into the infinite world of patterns, materials and their creators. OTHERWORLDLY looks at the extraordinary in fashion (in the literal sense) and gives us a glimpse into the trends and evolutions of mechanized materials, mutant make-up or transhuman technologies. PATTERNS is a beautifully designed visual enzyclopedia of textile designs and their creators. BLOOM takes inspiration from flowers, plants and gardening and has been an important source for trend forecasting in the past decade. Artist NATHALIE DU PASQUIER has been drawing patterns for textiles and ideas for clothes since being a part of the Memphis Group in 1981. Her drawings and sketches have been collected in this 300 page book, together with short texts and interviews with the “decorative genious” herself.

The Movement of Clouds around Mount Fuji – Photographed and Filmed by Masanao Abe
Text in Englisch
56,00 €

The Japanese physicist Masanao Abe built in the 1920s an observatory with a view of Mount Fuji for his study of air currents around the famous volcano. Over the course of fifteen years, he recorded the clouds that surrounded the mountain with film and photo. His scientific research fit unintentionally into a long iconographic tradition: the mountain and the clouds. The ever changing sky and the flat landscape surrounding Mt. Fuji leave the viewer full of fascination and lifts him up into the air.

The untouched archive was re-discovered in a garden shed by Helmut Völter due to his research on his book “Cloud Studies”.

The New Curator

With the expansion of the internet everything is now curated and everyone is a curator – curated playlists, curated outfits, curated menus, curated digital content… Once reserved for the arts, it became fashionable for bloggers, stylists, agencies, store owners to give themselves this lofty title. Through overuse and misuse its meaning became somewhat hazy and it seems that any activity that involves compiling and selecting can cary the caption “curated”.
It gets harder than ever to understand what it is a curator actually does. This book gives an insight into the practice of contemporary curating (in the arts of course) through interviews with different curators.

Unusual encounters with food really describes the subject-matter of this small, odd publication spot on. Through different kinds of contributions this first issue explores the connection of “food and…” – not necessarily a intuitive association – “bathrooms”. Next to a short fiction piece written from the perspective of the last burger Elvis had before his death (allegedly on the toilet) you will find strange illustrations of naked women preparing and consuming dishes, a collection of photos of people literally bathing in food and a recipe for some delicious “estroganoff”. But the centerpiece is without doubt an amazingly off-putting series of pictures taken of an eccentric elderly lady interacting with greens in a bathroom decorated with fruit and vegetables. If you are not hungry for issue #0 when closing this baby you are definitely reading it wrong…!

Tunica Studio is a New York based collaborative, multidisciplinary creative studio. The 5th issue of their always carefully curated and designed magazine might very well be the the culmination of their self-publishing practice so far. Described as a ‘receptacle of international culture‘ with the aim to combine disciplines, each issue is a beautiful piece of print as well as being chock-a-block full of content. Employing a different art director (and a very diverse group of contributors) for each issue, they all become unique gems rather than a repetition of the same aesthetics and content each time. They manage to be a bit offside the usual cultural lifestyle magazines – regularly featuring work by young creative producers just on the verge of popularity.
In this issue you can find not only their own SS16 apparel collection but also a fashion editorial featuring pieces of the young label Hardeman from Amsterdam and an in-depth conversation with Kevin Soh, the founder of ‘Le Roy’ another great genre-busting magazine from L.A. A little creative non-fiction by Swiss painter Laura Indorato leads to Gaspar Noe’s ‘LOVE‘ , a tour through Berlin with Ilja Karilampi, then finally ties in with the BB9 via an Interview with Alexa Karolinski, the artist behind the controversial video-piece ‘Army of Love’, still on view the the KW in Auguststraße.
Tunica is a multifaceted crystal of a magazine – staying coherent and harmonic throughout all its different contents.
