Nicht Jetzt! Das Studentische Magazin Des Department Design Der HAW Hamburg

»Nicht Jetzt!« ist das studentische Magazin des Department Design der HAW Hamburg.
Nach den Ausgaben »Kinder« und »Geld« beschäftigt sich die dritte monothematische
Ausgabe mit dem Thema GESCHMACK.

Inhaltlich spannt sich der Bogen auf 176 Seiten von Geschmack als ästhetischem
Urteilsbegriff bei Kant über Verunstaltungsverbote in Bauordnungen bis hin zu Blümchen-
tapete – und von Trends im Design über Kleidung aus Barbiepuppen bis zum krankhaften
Verlust des Geschmackssinnes.

»Nicht Jetzt!« versteht sich als interdisziplinäres Projekt von Studierenden der Bereiche
Illustration, Fotografie und Grafikdesign und wurde betreut von Professor Stefan Stefanescu.
In der dritten Ausgabe sind, neben den Texten verschiedenster Autoren, Arbeiten von neun
Fotografen sowie zwölf Illustratoren veröffentlicht. Trotz aller Ernsthaftigkeit des Projekts
wird das Magazin von den Studenten als Raum für Spiel und Experiment verstanden – auch,
was Druck und Bindung des Heftes angeht. Die Kombination von Dünndruck-, offenem und
Hochglanzpapier, Irisdruck und offener Schweizer Broschur steht für diese Experimentier-
freudigkeit.

032c Magazine #22

032c is a contemporary culture magazine that fiercely believes in the intelligence of its readers, and rises to the challenge of surprising them. Published twice a year, it is both timely and timeless—a celebration of and for the most cutting-edge in art, culture, and fashion.

Finding the new in the old and the old in the new, it is considered the “Berlin magazine that propagates an aesthetic of brutal elegance” by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, or simply as the “revue ultra-pointue” by Vogue Paris.

Dapper Dan Issue 04. Edited by Nicholas Georgiou, Vassilis Karidis.

Dapper Dan is a men’s magazine that is interested in inspiration, not novelty; in looking one’s own terms rather than being spoon-fed trends. It is created in Athens, Greece, by an international team and published twice a year, spanning fashion, culture and philosophy through striking photography and thoughtful texts. Eschewing the clichéd rules of men’s magazines, it follows a spirit, not a format. Dapper Dan is for the man who doesn’t feel he should have to be like everybody else.

mono.kultur #28
BLESS: IN DISGUISE
“Do you judge a magazine by its cover or its content?”

So much more than ‘just’ a fashion label, Bless is in fact a lifestyle, an attitude, an entire world to itself. Founded in 1996 by Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag and based in Paris and Berlin, Bless has always had its own way of seeing and doing: be it the famous fur wigs that were picked up by Maison Martin Margiela, or chairs that function as hoovers, or combs made out of (real) hair, or desks that turn into beds – you never know what to expect from Bless.

Renowned as a fashion label for quirky and unusual womenswear long before they actually presented their first regular collection, Bless successfully defies categorization by straddling the different worlds of fashion, industrial design and fine art with impressive ease and style. The underlying thread to all products and projects, however, is a constant questioning and rethinking of our world. And so, no matter what the designers set their delicate minds to, in the end it will always feel so surprisingly and refreshingly Bless.

In an interview that continuously reverses the roles of interviewer and interviewees, Bless talked with mono.kultur about the similarities between fashion and furniture, the importance of food, and their determination to improve our world.

The issue contains two separate booklets with a rollercoaster ride of an interview on your left, and the official lookbook of Bless’s latest collection N° 43 Know Howowow on your right.

Irene – Roswitha Hecke – Edition Patrick Frey

Posted in art, books, fashion, photography, poetry on July 11th, 2011


Irene – Roswitha Hecke – Edition Patrick Frey

Roswitha Hecke’s photo book Liebes Leben (Love Life) about the Zurich artist-muse and prostitute, Irene, also called “Lady Shiva,” was published for the first time in 1978. It became both a cult book and an international success. Reprinted many times and translated into several languages, it is finally available again. The new, revised volume put out by Edition Patrick Frey presents photos that have never before been published. It is through the director Werner Schroeter that Roswitha Hecke met Irene. Irene, a secret star of Zurich’s Bohème at that time, worked as a prostitute until her tragic accidental death. For three weeks Hecke photographed her daily routine in Zurich and accompanied her to Rome where Irene always celebrated her birthday. The result was a subtle and strong portrait of a woman, both beautiful and confident, with an unrivaled eroticism and proud elegance. The photos, a mix of choreographed and documentary work, capture an unusual immediacy and presence.

“Irene wanted to be pretty, to be a woman, to be free. She was direct and moody, like a child. She loved a flirt more than marriage. Tension more than harmony. Longing more than satisfaction. And distance more than contact. She lived her life according to this, come what may.” (Roswitha Hecke)
