Interview with Miruna Sorescu - Sindroms

Interview with Miruna Sorescu – Sindroms

In a world in which facts are handled as a matter of interpretation, it’s kind of ironic, that Sindroms, a magazine dedicated to colours proves that our highly subjective, emotional response to light refraction is by far less arbitrarily than one might think. In fact, our associative apparatus triggered by different qualities and intensities of the colour palette evokes a multitude of versatile and contrasting ‚monochrome states of minds‘. Without lapsing into banality, Sindroms unveils, issue after issue, all the complex and not seldom hidden layers of colours. So far it has been red, yellow, white before the pink issue hit our shelves. We e-met founder and Creative Director of Sindroms, Miruna Sorescu, to talk about her "obsessive-compulsive tendency of colour coding“ and how to translate this passion into print. More
Flaneur Taipei Q&A

Interview with Fabian Saul – Flaneur

Part II
While the halls of the HKW were illuminated by stroboscopic neon-lights, a large number of people hit the road to come, join and enjoy all the performances, discussions and intercultural encounters which arose from the fruitful collaborations between Flaneur and their invited Taiwanese artists. It comes at no surprise: the very first Flaneur Festival turned out to be a total blast! After more than one year stitching on Flaneur's Taipei issue - and, aligning a whole Festival on top of it - one can say right of the bat, that the hard work paid off well. Time to draw a first conclusion with Flaneur's editor in chief, Fabian Saul. More
Flaneur Taipei Q&A

Interview with Grashina Gabelmann – Flaneur

Part I
After winning the Lead Awards for Best Indie Publisher, a D&AD Award for Best Magazine Design, a couple of Stack Awards which all end with the phrase ‘of the year’ – just to name a few – the trio behind Flaneur is getting regularly invited to join various workshops and panel discussions all around the world. So one might ask: ‘What's next? What else do you want to achieve, dear Flaneur-Team?!’ Which is, frankly, not the most unreasonable question to have in mind but also becomes self-evident considering the up-coming Flaneur Festival at the HKW in Berlin. We met Grashina Gabelmann, one of Flaneur's editors in chief and got carried away by her sparkling imagination when it comes to stretch the idea of publishing a magazine to its very limits. More
Interview with Kai von Rabenau - mono.kultur

Interview with Kai von Rabenau – mono.kultur

The small independent fan-zine (DIN A5) from Berlin, with an even smaller lettering (8.5 pt), has been delighting its loyal readers for over 13 years. While some conduct an interview, mono.kultur takes the art of dialogue to the extreme with its extended question-answer game. The idea behind is simple: one issue, one artist, one interview. Right on time for the latest issue with fashion designer Iris van Herpen we met Kai von Rabenau, the driving force behind mono.kultur, to talk about the subtle art of an interview. In order to not be embarrassed in front of the master of vis-à-vis, we asked our questions à la carte. So from now on the rule is: one card, one question - following the motto ‘Play it as it lays’.

Interview mit Fabian Ebeling - Die Epilog

Interview mit Fabian Ebeling – Die Epilog

Egal ob über Protest, die Wiederverzauberung der Welt, ein Leben im Konjunktiv, die Bedeutung von Irrelevanz oder ob über die Generationenfrage, die Epilog lässt alte Kamellen (u.a. die großen Fragen der Menschheit) in neuem Licht erstrahlen. Sie bereitet ihrem Namen alle Ehre und schafft es regelmässig große, bereits immer dagewesene Themen nicht nur anders zu denken, sondern ihnen immer auch etwas Positives abzugewinnen. Das Gesellschaftsmagazin für Gegenwartskultur, das bei ein, zwei (drei, vier…) Bier in einer Eckkneipe in Weimar aus den synaptischen Kurzschlüssen zwischen Mads Pankow, Viola K. Steinberg und Fabian Ebeling entstand, geht in eine neue Runde. Zeit also, ein paar Fragen an die Macher hinter der Die Epilog zu stellen. More
Interview with Indhira Rojas - Anxy Magazine

Interview with Indhira Rojas – Anxy Magazine

We have been spoilt for choice when it came to choose our next interview partner among all these brave, quirky, loud, shy, straight women out there. ‘Big time whining’ indeed! We are all the more pleased that we’ve got founder and creative director of Anxy Magazine, Indhira Rojas, for our second Q&A. In fact, for us it’s like a catch 22 - only in a far more positive manner. With a little help from Indhira we managed to find a way to address both sides of the story: what it means to be a woman and a man these days and far more important, how these notions of gender categories affect and conflict our inner worlds.

Interview with Vala Thorodds - Pain Magazine

Interview with Vala Thorodds – Pain Magazine

The easiest way to get right to the bottom of things is - naturally - playing ‚Truth and Dare‘. So let’s start with bare facts. You think poetry is rather dusty, quixotic or charming as moulded grey bread? No worries, you don’t have to say your answer out loud. Frankly, we (almost) all have been there. But we have to break it to you: The natural evolution of the lyrical section on our shelves almost clandestinely multiplied itself over the last few years. And this is not the only thing to say about this art form currently experiencing a fulminant renaissance. The revival of poems comes along fresh, colorful, innovative and - definitely worth to mention - the fellows who are falling for lyrical rhythms, getting lost in-between the lines are as vivid and young as their thrilled audience. And still, as Poetry Magazine (launched in 1912!) names the elephant in the room already within its title: Who reads poetry? We thought it would be a smart move to choose ‚Dare‘ and asked one of the most dazzling voices of this new poetry wave and the co-editor of Pain Magazine: Vala Thorodds. More
