Texture Magazine Issue #2 is about proximity, growth, and the art of feeling as much as understanding – a fractallised approach to what sound can mean now.

From a radical relistening of silence to the intellectual demise of music altogether, the words contained within are to be held, shared, caressed and torn asunder. Also featured is writing on the sociopolitics of the nightlife industry, the place-making of UK Drill, and the meaning of gatherings in northern Sweden through the eyes of Pliny the Elder. Among many others, of course.

Foam Magazine #63: FOOD!. Elisa Medde (Ed.). Foam Magazine

You are what you eat! Food is not only a basic need, it is deeply intertwined with most aspects of our lives — as individuals and communities. Foam Magazine #63: FOOD! – The Nourishing Issue looks at what we are made of, focusing on the ways food drives us apart, brings us together and moves us further — all at the same time.

Food fuels us, heals us and brings people together. Yet there is another side to food, which is more political and complex than it appears. Nourishment, ritual, sustainability, economy, labour, culture, ecology, community, exploitation, identity, politics: The collection of portfolios included in this issue are a testament to the variety of visual strategies addressing a few of such matters.

Next to 16 visual portfolios, we are thrilled to present an interview by Siddhartha Mitter with Anna-Alix Koffi on her work and the newly opened art space SOMETHING in Abidjan, Ivory Coast; a thoughtfully put together selection of Algerian photobooks in the bookshelf section by Awel Haouati; an essay on illegal labour in the food industry by Gustavo Duch; an account by Iroquois scholar Atlanta Grant on Indigenous ideas around food waste and recycling — and much much more.

This special issue is the cataLog for Model Behavior, a group exhibition of models, architectural and otherwise, curated by the Anyone Corporation and presented by The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union in New York City. The exhibition, which ran October 4–November 18, 2022, questioned the role of the model in projecting or eliciting social behavior. In addition to documenting the 55 exhibited works with four-color images and project descriptions, the 160-page cataLog includes essays by curator Cynthia Davidson; by architecture theorists Jörg H. Gleiter, Kiel Moe, and Christophe Van Gerrewey; and by art historian Annabel Jane Wharton.



MODEL BEHAVIOR

OCTOBER 4 – NOVEMBER 18, 2022

A GROUP EXHIBITION CURATED BY THE ANYONE CORPORATION AND PRESENTED BY THE IRWIN S. CHANIN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE OF THE COOPER UNION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE AND ART

Models, whether physical or digital, are intrinsic to architecture. Just as science, mathematics, politics, economics, and other fields use models to visualize, reflect, and predict behaviors, so do architectural models. Model Behavior, a group exhibition curated by Log editor Cynthia Davidson, designed by New Affiliates (Ivi Diamantopoulou and Jaffer Kolb), considered how architectural models contribute to shaping social behaviors. Model Behavior featured 70 works and objects by 45 artists and architects including artists Olafur Eliasson, Isamu Noguchi, Ekow Nimako, and Thomas Demand, and architects Peter Eisenman, Darell Wayne Fields, Greg Lynn, Forensic Architects (Eyal Weizman), First Office (Anna Neimark and Andrew Atwood), MALL (Jennifer Bonner), Ensamble (Débora Mesa and Antón García-Abril), and Höweler and Yoon (Eric Höweler and Meejin Yoon).

Stuck Magazine issue 001: Subworld Episodes. Marius Thielmann, Jacopo Borrini (Eds.). Stuck

Posted in illustration, magazines, photography on January 31st, 2023

In this issue, we want to take you on a journey from the innerworld to the outerdepths. A journey that begins with the shallows of human fears, needs and expressions, and ends with a view of dystopian (or maybe utopian?) future scenarios. Divided into two episodes, we invite you to explore the shadowy vastness of your imagination. In “modes of expression,” you’ll find content on issues of inequality, identity and nostalgia: in “imagined futures,“ we offer you a glimpse into absurdity.

Subworlds exist parallel to the now. They remain underground and are subconscious. Beginning at the point of discomfort for the mainstream, subworlds are deliberately – or inherently – disturbing, different and provocative. In this issue, use this exclusive subworld as a learning platform. A variety of modalities and disciplines await. From art painting and photography, sculpturalism and 3D art, to clay and handwork, the thoughts and feelings of nine contributors are into these 138 pages of subworld episodes.

Featured artists: Tyler Cala Willams, Ingrato, Siilk Gallery feat. Jonny Kaye, Rick Castro, Moyosore Briggs, Xena Magali, Kseniya Vaschenko, Saint Profanus, Lazygawd, Bodysnatchers, Malte Bartsch, Solo Show, Guerrilla Bizarre feat. Isabella

Contributors: Jacopo Borrini, Marius Thielmann, Rebecca Took, Illaria Sacchi, Miriam Partington, Marie-Christine Lümen, Smilla Marcussen, Meret Scheppach, Hyesoo Chung
