This book is also available in German. Operating in the space between a regulatory cosmos and the chaos of life, spoken language and its written notation unfold in different directions. [expand title="more"]Proceeding from the digital as a seemingly universal notational substrate, the first volume of Das Neue Alphabet (The New Alphabet) series tracks the interplay between these two tendencies by looking at a series of examples: the relationship between binary code and Leibniz’s philosophy of Monadology, the technological and cosmological aspects of non­ Western writing systems, which are antithetical to a monolithic understanding of language, and the power of the Alphabet Song to teach children the alphabet, its ordering principle cloaked in poetic form. The texts are accompa­ nied by images created by artist Wolfgang Tillmans.[/expand]

For the first time in our history, there are no new clothes in the fashion section of the magazine. Mother Earth. Where to begin? What does being human on this planet we all share really mean? As I write this, in my office in New York, it’s Mother’s Day and I can’t help but connect what both mothers and our planet at its purest really represent: nurture, love, abundance and the circle of life.It’s impossible for any one community to right the wrongs that our species has inflicted on the world, and so our manifesto for this issue was to look around us, across the planet, to celebrate the natural world and our place as humans within it. To explore. To right size ourselves. All through the i-D lens. What started as an earth issue ultimately evolved into a study of our global community. We commissioned projects in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Nigeria, Albania, America, Burkina Faso, France, i-D’s birthplace the U.K, and across the oceans that connect us all. For the first time in our history, there are no new clothes in the fashion section of the magazine. We looked at the ways in which the fashion industry can continue to benefit from the philosophies and DNA of i-D’s early issues: getting back to craft and creativity; the use and re-use of treasured items through D-i-Y, recycling, and upcycling; through vintage and archive clothing; through charity shopping.

Through 140 drawings, thought experiments, recipes, activist instructions, gardening ideas, insurgences and personal revolutions, artists who spend their lives thinking outside the box guide you to a new worldview; where you and the planet are one.more
Everything here is new. We invite you to rip out pages, to hang them up at home, to draw and scribble, to cook, to meditate, to take the book to your nearest green space.

‘Berlin has always been divided, so it’s important to find forms of solidarity.’ – María Inés Plaza Lazo. In the March issue of frieze, Carina Bukuts chairs a roundtable conversation on the future of Berlin’s institutions, with contributions from curator and writer Anselm Franke, the co-founder and editor of Arts of the Working Class, María Inés Plaza Lazo, the director and founder of CCA Berlin – Center for Contemporary Arts, Fabian Schöneich, and artist Sung Tieu. Plus, Edna Bonhomme speaks to Carolyn Lazard ahead of the artist’s exhibition at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Also featuring: Adam Mazur reviews the rise of right-wing art in Poland as the Law and Justice Party systematically eliminates opposition within the country’s institutions. In ‘1,500 words’, Alexander Kluge reflects on Walter Benjamin's favourite film and the pleasure machines of Coney Island. And Carina Bukuts profiles Rabih Mroué, whose solo show at KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin, opens in mid-February.

In 1964, Nell Dunn spoke to nine of her friends over a bottle of wine about sex, work, money, babies, freedom and love. The novelist Ann Quin says she appears to be a 'singular girl, singular and single’ but questions the use she makes of her freedom. The Pop artist Pauline Boty reveals she married 'the first man I could talk very freely to’ ten days after meeting him. Kathy Collier, who worked with Dunn in a Battersea sweet factory, talks about what it takes to 'get out’ of a life that isn’t fulfilling. Edna O’Brien tells us about the time she inadvertently stole a brown georgette scarf and the lesson she took from it: 'Morality is not the same thing as abstinence.’ After more than fifty years out of print, Talking to Women is still as sparkling, honest, profound, funny and wise as when it was first published.

Sometimes we miss what we can’t step back to see. Sometimes the invisible only appears with the creep of time. And sometimes, in the case of historical events, the visible becomes invisible with the loss of a generation. Graphics give us the power to zoom out, to compare, to remember. Data has the power to expose truths that some would prefer to keep out of view. This book examines inequalities in happiness, unpaid labour and pollution levels and [expand title="more"] exposes where eviction, gender-based violence and unexploded ordnance threaten the lives of our fellow humans. It shows how the climate crisis is influencing everything from hurricanes to the hajj. Humans measure glacial loss in Alaska and sea level rise in the Marshall Islands; the book reveals how high-tech solutions can help us monitor changes in the atmosphere and respond to problems on the ground. Data have the power to increase our understanding of the world, but there are tradeoffs. How should we strike a balance between the pros and cons? In an era when a single tweet contains more data than text, it’d help if our policymakers understood the technology they’re meant to regulate. [/expand]

Photographer Fien Muller and sculptor Hannes Van Severen only made their debut as a design duo in 2011. But already their first collection of furniture met with a great response. It was the simple materials and an incredible sense for shapes and colour combinations that made them stand out and still do today.⁠ ⁠ Over the last decade they created an influential body of work – elementary forms shape functional sculptures that grow into vibrant spaces. With both Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen being artists, it’s- natural that their collections sit somewhere between design and art. This book unveils the origins, the complexity, and the references embedded in the DNA of Muller Van Severen’s work.⁠   Buy

Belgian design duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen have worked together for a decade. During this time, a combination of their family roots, work process, and the use of simple industrial materials in combination with a rich colour palette created an influential body of work - elementary forms shape functional sculptures that grow into vibrant spaces. [expand title="more"] Through conversations and visual references, Dialogue unveils the origins, the complexity, and the references embedded in the DNA of Muller Van Severen's work. Muller Van Severen was founded in the early Spring of 2011. With both Fien Muller (°1978, Lokeren, Belgium) and Hannes Van Severen (°1979, Gent, Belgium) being artists, it's- natural that the collection sits somewhere between design and art. Edited by Jan Boelen, Text contrubutions by Arno Brandlhuber, Beatrice Galilee, Sam Chermayeff. Photographs by Fred Muller, Frederik Vercruysse. [/expand]

Im Rahmen meiner Masterarbeit habe ich mich mit der Entstehung von Brot, dessen Einfluss auf unsere Geschichte und unsere Kultur und dem Unterschied zwischen traditioneller und industrieller Herstellung von Brot beschäftigt. [expand title="more"]Darüber hinaus haben mich folgende Fragen interessiert: Was macht ein gutes Brot aus? Warum sind Bäckereien systemrelevant und wie könnte die Zukunft des Bäckerhandwerks aussehen? Brot ist nicht nur ein Sattmacher, nicht nur ein Grundnahrungsmittel – Brot ist existenziell und seit 2020 auch systemrelevant. Mit dieser Arbeit möchte ich darauf aufmerksam machen, dass Brot nicht gleich Brot ist. Es stellt sich die Frage: Ist das Brot immer noch ein Grundnahrungsmittel oder wird es zum Statussymbol unserer essenneurotischen Zeit? Wir lieben unser Brot und doch spaltet es die Meinungen. Wir denken an Handwerk, den Duft von Brot, wenn es gerade aus dem Ofen kommt, aber auch an Unverträglichkeiten, Brot als Dickmacher, oder an das Aussterben des Bäckerberufes. In den letzten Jahrzehnten hat sich einiges verändert. Künstliche Enzyme, Chemikalien und Zusatzstoffe spielen eine große Rolle bei der industrielle Herstellung von Brot. Nur noch wenige Bäckereien backen selbst. Viele lassen sich mit Aufbackwaren beliefern oder nutzen Backhilfsmittel für ihre Produkte. Auf der anderen Seite schießen Art Design Bakeries aus dem Boden und Brot aus natürlichen, regionalen und saisonalen Produkten wird immer beliebter. Die Wertschätzung für unserer Grundnahrungsmittel steigt wieder und das Brot erhält neue Aufmerksamkeit.[/expand]
