Sleek 38 Summer 2013: The One And the Many
We’re all individuals, and we’re all part of a bigger whole – in fact many of those. But do the best ideas come from one individual working in isolation, or from the collective genius of many working in collaboration – the thing Brian Eno calls “scenius”? And in this endlessly networked era, how do artists and fashion designers generate their visions together and then bring them to reality?
Those are the ideas we explore in the summer issue of Sleek, publishing next week, which includes essays on fashion design in the age of Tumblr and walking, that most singular of solitary activities, in art, along with interviews with art-world scourge Billy Childish, the iconoclastic young New York artist Avery Singer and a journey through Berlin’s new art collective underground. On top of that, there’s fantastic fashion from photographers Markus Pritzi, Emanuele Fontanesi, Mark Kean, Christoph Wohlfahrt and Patrick Houi in Paris, London and Berlin.
Fashion Now – Art Forever
Also in Sleek’s summer issue enjoy captivating, critical fashion and art content including Yohji Yamamoto in Berlin, the Bruce high Quality Foundation in New York and profiles of Nhu Duong, Marios Schwab and Emma Hill, and notes on murals, Anish Kapoor, performance art, gangs in fashion and a dog named Mo modelling the latest summer sunglasses.
The Sleek Book
There’s also a ripped, torn and rootsy reappraisal of punk in art, fashion and aesthetics in the Sleek Book with interviews from AA Bronson, collagiste extraordinaire Linder and a special memoir of Punk as it happened in Hannover, 1975, from Heinrich Dubel. Plus, look out for fashion from the backyards of New York, the streets of London and the banks of the Bosphorus in Istanbul too.
