Kaleidoscope Issue 36 Spring/Summer 2020

PRE-ORDER

We are delighted to announce the release of KALEIDOSCOPE‘s new issue #36 (spring/summer 2020), coinciding with the redesign of the magazine’s print and digital presence by Swiss art direction and graphic design studio Kasper-Florio. Driven by a minimalistic approach which foregrounds the work of artists and photographers, the new graphic identity is “hacked” by a set of illustrations by Berlinbased studio PWR.

This issue comes with a set of three covers: London-based Nigerian fashion designer Mowalola Ogunlesi (photographed by Jordan Hemingway) talks to Reba Maybury about her fluid representation of the Black body, championing the individual.

A profile by Jeppe Ugelvig introduces Venice Beach native Eli Russell Linnetz, creative director for the Kardashian-West clan and Lady Gaga, and his powerful meditation on fame, glamour, and mythology.

Featuring an artwork by design studio Sucuk und Bratwurst, the third cover is

dedicated to Cannabiz: The Gentrification of Weed, a trend report on the legalization and corporatization of the marijuana industry—comprising an essay by Whitney Mallett, case studies by Lucas Mascatello and Michelle Lhooq, and a focus on Richard Prince by Alexandre Stipanovich. Inaugurating a new text-only editorial segment dedicated to urgent research questions of our time, “What is Influence?” presents four newly-commissioned longform essays (by Caroline BustaGeoffrey MakPierce Meyers and Taylore Scarabelli) discussing influence as legacy, currency and agency—all the while examining art’s own influence on society, and viceversa.

MYRISTICA, a special supplement to KALEIDOSCOPE’s new issue #36 created in partnership with Gucci, portrays experimental cellist and songwriter Kelsey Lu as the protagonist of a comic book (illustrated by Terrell Villiers and written by Akia Dorsainvil) illuminating her personal journey with references drawn from fable, cosmology and afro futurism.

Also featured in this issue:

Nora Turato (photography by Roos Quakernaat, interview by Ana Janevski); Lorenzo Senni (photography by John Divola, interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist); Clemens Von Vedemeyer (interview by Adriana Blidaru); Charlie Engman (essay by Francesca Gavin); Retail Apocalypse (Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen in conversation with Mark Lee); Olivier Mosset (photography by Alessandro Barthlow, interview by Gianni Jetzer); Diane Severin Nguyen (essay by Franklin Melendez); Davide Sorrenti (essay by Aaron Rose).
