Magazine: 032c (Fashion, Politics, Art)

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. The 16th issue is chillingly called
"Post-America", although it might as well be called "Post-NYC" because
apparently the only bookstores that carry the mag in the entire USA are in
NYC. I'm not surprised, just mildly bemused. Anyways, this is what you will
find in the 16th issue. I'll be picking it up when I'm in America, oh
excuse me New York, over Thanksgiving holiday.
