MZIN RESTOCK: DOUGLAS COUPLAND — SHOPPING IN JAIL (STERNBERG PRESS)

In Douglas Coupland's writing, the doldrums of a world afflicted by the pains of dotcom booms and busts, the ascendency of subcultures to pop cultures, and the subsequent struggle for identity are counterbalanced by droll, personal, and incisive analyses. This collection of nonfiction essays provides an illuminating meander through what we call culture today.

Dedicated to documenting and exploring the visual contemporary, we are committed to utilizing the universal language of the image to create unique connections between the cutting edge of culture and intellectual movements.

MZIN NEWS: THE METROPOLITAN LABORATORY — #1 / EDUCATION (SPECTOR BOOKS)

ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory was launched in 2009 as a physical and intellectual space focused on the inseparable interplay between urban form and social life. Now in its eighth year, ANCB decided to broaden its experimental journey as an independent public platform with an annual magazine entitled The Metropolitan Laboratory that further explores our deliberate goal of providing an alternative urban discourse. Entitled "Education: Trial and Error“, this first issue looks at the topic of artistic and architectural education. As a survey of highly progressive pedagogical approaches, it questions the role of education in past, present, and future. The broad spectrum of articles and essays ranges from Black Mountain College, Joseph Beuys, Paul Thek, Cedric Price, and Oswald Ungers all the way to Beatriz Colomina, Olafur Eliasson, Ai Wei Wei, Thom Mayne, Odile Decq, Peter Cook, and Joan Ockmann, to mention but a few. Inherent to all of these contributions is a profound apprehension of the positive surplus of unsolicited changes, uninvited irritants, unanticipated setbacks, and failures as the future seeds of human achievement and progress.

MZIN NEWS: HELMUT VÖLTER — THE MOVEMNTS OF CLOUDS AROUND MOUNT FUJI (SPECTOR BOOKS)

In the late 1920s, the Japanese physicist Masanao Abe built an observatory with a view of Mount Fuji. From it, over the course of fifteen years, he recorded the clouds that surrounded the mountain. He was interested in the scientific question of how the air currents around Fuji could be visualized by means of film and photography. Albeit unintentionally, Abe’s motifs fit into a long iconographic tradition: the mountain and the clouds. For decades his archive was left untouched in a Tokyo garden shed. Helmut Völter, who discovered Abe’s legacy while working on his book »Cloud Studies«, sifted through the images of the passionate cineaste who saw a combination of individual images, moving pictures and stereo recordings as the ideal form of scientific evidence. The mere contemplation of these dynamic cloud photographs centring on snow-covered Fuji seems to lift the viewer into the air.

MZIN NEWS: WERNER SEWING — NO MORE LEARNING FROM LAS VEGAS. STADT, WOHNEN ODER THEMENPARK? (SPECTOR BOOKS)

The book represents the ideas of the architecture theorist Werner Sewing in a selection of interviews and essays that were published between 1998 and 2010. Their broad range of themes covers the discourse on the city and society, on politics and participation, on spatial models and images of lifestyle concepts in an age characterised by retro design, event culture, globalisation, and digitalisation. Sewing’s critical analysis and decoding of the background structures of policy guidelines that have been strategically significant in the post-postmodernist period still carry a charge and are of particular relevance in defining contemporary architecture. The publication contains archive material relating to one of the first citizen actions in West Berlin in the 1980s protesting against the Senate’s decision to develop Winterfeldtplatz.

MZIN NEWS: DUMMY #52 (D) — USA

Man könnte an diesem Land verzweifeln: der alltägliche Rassismus, der Siegeszug evangelikaler Radikalinskis, die Hybris, anderen Völkern die eigene Kultur aufzudrängen und das als Freiheitsexport zu deklarieren. Und gleichzeitig ist man diesem Land (zumindest wenn man nicht in der DDR leben musste) so unendlich dankbar. Für die Beendigung des Nazispuks, aber auch für die kulturellen Exportschlager: Musik, Filme, Bücher – alles dazu angetan, den stets von Verspießerung bedrohten Deutschen die ungemein erfrischende Idee eines anderen Lebens zu vermitteln. Aber wie geht es mit uns weiter? Es ist ja nicht nur so, dass uns Amerika durch den Irrsinn in den Straßen und den Reihen der Republikaner fremder geworden ist – die viel größere Dynamik liegt im Desinteresse der zukünftigen amerikanischen Mehrheit an Europa. Zeit um zu reden.

MZIN NEWS: MONO.KULTUR #41 — MEG STUART (D)

Delirious, vulnerable bodies running, stumbling, sliding from ramps, crashing into each other in full flight; whirling dancers in states of trance and abandon; traces of patterns emerging and dissolving: the work of American choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart is an enigmatic and dazzling experience of dance as a multisensory attack, distilling harmony out of chaos, grace out of roughness, moments of intensity out of daily rituals and gestures.

Meg Stuart’s work is not about the elegance and beauty ofbodies age, fail, and surrender, where individual spaces disintegrate and bleed into each other, where physical memories are exposed like open wounds.

Within just two decades, Stuart’s dance company Damaged Goods, which she founded in 1994, have produced a lengthy and diverse list of projects, ranging from countless full-length feature works to multi-disciplinary dance installations, improvisations, and films that spread far beyond the theatre stages of the world, into museum spaces, film festivals or the wide open street.

With mono.kultur, Meg Stuart talked about her first physical memories, the healing power of dancing and the thrill of disorientation.

Honouring Meg Stuart’s interest in abundance and complexity, we treated the issue as a physical object that needs to be handled and turned: with text and images set in different and ever-changing directions, the issue makes for a wonderfully dynamic and dense reading experience, and so it should.

MZIN RESTOCK: 032C #30 — MANUAL FOR FREEDOM, RESEARCH AND CREATIVITY (D)

In celebration of its 30th issue, 032c and artist-director RALF SCHMERBERG teamed up to create “An Innocent Mind Has No Fear,” a proposal for the ultimate Berlin film with a libretto by writer HELENE HEGEMANN. It is a manifesto about life in the post-contemporary era, where cultural promiscuity has dissolved into a condition of spiritual bankruptcy. Heat and compression have melted the meaning from our past algorithms, while aimless citizens wander in search of a new morality. The bandwidth of pleasure-pain has become endless.

Welcome to 032c Issue XXX!

Artist STERLING RUBY shares his archive of workwear, a collection of clothing that appears as next century’s post-apocalyptic craft. Developed initially as a uniform for his Los Angeles studio, the garments are part of a larger, self-cannibalizing material practice that includes his sculptures and paintings.

Austerity bully, refugee haven, neither, or both? — In light of Germany’s newfound powerful and complex role on the world stage, journalist Joachim Bessing and sociologist Heinz Bude seek to untangle the psyche of a country through its mysterious figurehead leader, ANGELA MERKEL.

In the wake of Hood By Air’s sexually charged takeover of the shop windows at Barneys New York, creative directors SHAYNE OLIVER (HBA), DENNIS FREEDMAN (Barneys), and BABAK RADBOY (Telfar) discuss public transportation, dermatology, and the legacy of Helmut Lang over martini glasses filled with ceviche. Meanwhile, writer HANNAH BLACK unpacks the significance of Hood By Air’s silicone replicas of male models into a pyramid of fashion-commodity-death.

THE LOTTA-DELPHINE COMPLEX — At a time when industry wisdom is crowd-sourced and the consumer holds more power than ever before, 032c’s Jina Khayyer speaks to LVMH executive DELPHINE ARNAULT and mega-stylist LOTTA VOLKOVA, two equal yet opposite centers of gravity in the contemporary fashion landscape.

In tandem with his friends Jeff Koons, Jeffrey Deitch, and Maurizio Cattelan, the Cypriot industrialist and art collector DAKIS JOANNOU has turned an “unreasonable love for art” into a Zeitgeist-shaping pile of acquisitions. 032c’s Thom Bettridge travels to Greece at the apex of the financial crisis to uncover the mysteries behind the tinted windows of Joannou’s pop art battleship, Guilty.

“People, for me, are function. Is that awful?” — After being awarded Britain’s best mens- and womenswear designer in the same year, J.W. ANDERSON receives a visit from architect Jack Self, who administers a personality test at the designer’s home in London The verdict: Anderson is an accomplished devil’s advocate and a hyper-capitalist par excellence. Anderson explains why he prefers interviews to psychotherapy, and how the fashion industry is an autobahn: You can go as fast as you like, as long as you don’t take your hands off the wheel.

“It seems like the only way out is to speed up what is already at work”— Anthropologist JASON PINE shares his field research into homemade meth-cooking in rural Missouri and explains how a backwater drug epidemic is in fact the chemical embodiment of mainstream capitalism.

After bringing art criticism to the masses with Ways of Seeing, author and artist JOHN BERGER gave half of his 1972 Booker Prize money to the Black Panthers and used the other half to relocate to a village in the French Alps. Writer Niklas Maak brings us a portrait of Berger’s life as a rural futurist on the occasion of The Seasons in Quincy, a film initiated by his longtime friend Tilda Swinton.

COLLIER SCHORR and LOTTA VOLKOVA team up for an editorial feature, while enigmatic fashion designer CHRISTOPHE DECARNIN makes his debut as a fashion photographer in a celebration of the American West.

Juergen Teller makes peace with a soccer rival, a Renaissance accountant predicts the future of menswear, and the anti-aging industry performs a Swiss Air First Class takeover of the Bauhaus tradition — all this and more in SELECT, a 32-page bonanza of our favorite products of the season.

032c Issue 30 is available now, with a choice of two covers: COLLIER SCHORR shooting Gosha Rubchinskiy and Balanciaga on the left, and RALF SCHMERBERG shooting Gucci on the right.

MZIN NEWS: PURPLE FASHION VOL.III, ISSUE 26 — FALL WINTER 2016 (FR)

In 1992, Elein Fleiss and Olivier Zahm started the magazine Purple Prose as a reaction against the superficial glamour of the 1980's; much as a part of the global counterculture at the time, inspired by magazines like InterviewRay Gun, Nova, and Helmut Newton's Illustrated, but with the aesthetics of what usually is referred to as anti-fashion. Based on their personal interests and views; Purple was, and in a sense still is, made much in the same spirit of the fanzine. The magazine quickly became associated with the "realism" of the new fashion photography of the 1990s, with names like Juergen TellerTerry RichardsonWolfgang Tillmans, and Mario Sorrenti.[1]

MZIN NEWS: HARUN FAROCKI — WAS GETAN WERDEN SOLL / WHAT OUGHT TO BE DONE (HAFI)

In the mid-1970s, Harun Farocki wrote a two-page call programmatically entitled What Ought to Be Done, followed by a survey addressed to potential collaborators and supporters. He envisioned an institution to “organize a coalition of working people, not from an abstract understanding but from the contact points of their work.” The purpose of this institution, devoted to documentary practices, was twofold. It was “intended to collect, i.e. secure what is there,” but also “to produce, i.e. initiate what is not yet there.” In doing so, it was meant to facilitate social and collaborative processes, comprehensive and interdisciplinary studies without time pressure.
At the occasion of Farocki’s working paper, the Harun Farocki Institut, founded in 2015, historically situates Farocki’s initiative and reflects upon the proximities and differences between creating an institution in 1976 and forty years later.

The publication includes Farocki’s text, a commentary by Tom Holert, Doreen Mende and Volker Pantenburg, as well as a letter written in 1975 by documentary filmmaker Peter Nestler in response to Farocki’s circular.

In his illustrated essay, Lars Müller traces the history of «Swiss Graphic Design» from the 30s to the 60s and the enduring significance of Josef Müller-Brockmann’s principles of design. Müller-Brockmann’s posters have become world famous for their ability to convey information with great visual tension, a sense of drama, and an extreme economoy of means. As a leading exponent of «Swiss Graphic Design» in the 50s and 60s, Müller-Brockmann created a body of work in which timeless principles of visual communication are inscribed.

MZIN NEWS: SAN ROCCO #12 — A MAGAZINE ABOUT ARCHITECTURE (IT)

The issue with the client is that the reasons why clients should pay for architecture (i.e., the reasons why rich or powerful individuals could become clients) seem to be disappearing. In fact, architecture corresponds to a singular mixture of exhibitionism and shame that leads people to try to acquire public renown (and at the same time erase the memory of how they used to make money) by contributing to the construction of the spaces of public life. And while there is no shortage of exhibitionism nowadays...

Beim Korrekturlesen dieses Hefts, in der Phase, in der wir alle Texte in ihrer Gesamtheit innerhalb kurzer Zeit lesen, fiel es uns – wieder einmal – auf: Design wird von diversen Disziplinen begleitet – Musik, Film und Fotografie, bildende Kunst und Architektur –, mit denen es Inspirationsquellen, Werkzeuge und Methoden teilt. MappingStorytelling, Modellbau, Coding oder das spätestens durch den Pop salonfähig gewordene Kopieren sind als disziplinübergreifende Gestaltungsinstrumente auszumachen. „Alles ist zum Austausch, zur Erweiterung und zur Verbindung bereit“, schreibt Frank Nickerl in seinem Text und meint dies weniger im inter- oder transdisziplinären als vielmehr in einem kon-disziplinären Sinn. Design bildet mit anderen Fach- und Wissenszweigen Assoziationen, ähnlich den sich ebenfalls aus verschiedenen Fächern, wie technische Mechanik oder Werkstoffkunde, zusammensetzenden Konstruktionswissenschaften.

Mit Ausgabe 103, „Poesie/Poetry“, widmet sich Texte zur Kunst der verstärkten Sichtbarkeit einer poetischen Sprache in Kunst und Kunstkritik und untersucht das mit dem Modell der/des „artist-poet“ auftretende Wechselspiel zwischen Politik, Affekt und Digitalität. Wenn sich heute jede/r auf Grundlage je individueller Erfahrungen ermächtigt fühlen kann, (von sich) selbst zu berichten, scheinen die Institutionen einer objektiven Kritik nicht mehr zu genügen. Was bedeutet somit die poetische Sprache für die Kritik? Populistische und anarchistische Poesie, Post-Jahrtausendwende-Netzpoesie, die Sprache der sozialen Medien, die Poesie als sprachlichen Mehrwert, sowie die objektgewordene kunsthistorische Poetik betrachtend, geht diese Ausgabe dem Zusammenhang zwischen der scheinbaren Unmittelbarkeit von poetry, ihrer oft hyperpersönlichen Stimme und dem aufmerksamkeitsökonomischen Gebot, vor allem Sichtbarkeit zu erlangen, nach.

MZIN NEWS: LADISLAV SUTNAR — VISUAL DESIGN IN ACTION (LARS MÜLLER PUBLISHERS)

Originally published in 1961, Ladislav Sutnar’s Visual Design in Action is one of the most groundbreaking books on modern graphic design. This reprint illustrates the power of design and features astonishingly contemporary graphics, advertisements and corporate identities for renowned brands.
Sutnar’s brilliant structural systems for clarifying otherwise dense industrial data placed him in the pantheon of modernist pioneers and made him one of the visionaries of what is today called information design. Visual Design in Action is a snapshot of Sutnar’s American period (1939–1976). The publication is a testament to the historical relevance of modernism and the philosophical resonance of Sutnar’s focus on the functional beauty of total clarity.
Visual Design in Action is accompanied by a commentary including notes by the editors, Reto Caduff and Steven Heller, and a complete biography of Ladislav Sutnar. The reprint was made possible thanks to the generous support of backers of a crowdfunding campaign.

MZIN NEWS: SPACE MAGAZINE #4 — EXTRAORDINARY DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE (DK)

‘The Collectors’ is a celebration of modern hunter-gatherers, mixing photography and candid conversation, exploring the collections and private obsessions of notable names in fashion art, design and music such as designer Kim Jones, artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton, photographer Anders Edström, who journeys to legendary director Ingmar Bergman’s summer cabin, psychologist Måns Lindstedt and designer Ana Kraš.
“We are all collectors, one way or the other, and I believe we all use our collections as a way of constructing a self-portrait. With this issue we wanted to nose around the collections of people who inspire us. What do their collections tell us about them? Why do we collect in the first place. It’s fascinating.” – Frederik Bjerregaard, Editor-in-chief
