“With our eyes firmly set on the future rather than the past, it’s sometimes surprising to stop and catch our breath for a moment only to realise, ‘Blimey! We’ve passed issue #30 already!’ Meaning: High time for our second collector’s box set mono.archiv #02, gathering mono.kultur issues #16 to 30 in one pretty and screenprinted box, in that strange grey/blue/green hue which tends to lean towards one or the other depending on the time of day. Once again including a sweet little wrap-around (water!), and once again your very last chance to get your hands on beloved issues such as Miranda July or Ai Weiwei, which have been well and truly sold out for what feels like years. Strictly limited to 150 copies, and 150 only.”

mono.kultur #22
Ai Weiwei: Portrait of a Critical Mind
“I think just walking in the other direction is a smart choice.”

Ai Weiwei is widely viewed as the most important fine artist in China
today. The outspoken critic of the politcal system in China gained
widespread attention not only with his installations and projects for,
among others, Documenta XII and Haus der Kunst, but also his
architectural projects such as the Beijing Olympics Stadium and his
social engagement.

With mono.kultur, Ai Weiwei talked about the fine arts boom in China,
the mind games of architecture and why political activity can be a
work of art.
