TANK AUTUMN 2016: The Food Issue
In the autumn issue of Tank we investigate food – why are we so obsessed with it? As our culture becomes more and more preoccupied with what we eat, AS Hamrah traces the changing semiotic meanings of the chef in American culture, Timothy Morton unpicks the philosophical meanings of desire and consumption, Maria Dimitrova elucidates the bourgeois notions of comfort embedded in the depiction of food in film, Bee Wilson goes in search of the food of the future and Jenny Jones investigates the architecture of the edible. The magazine features the incomparable Torbjorn Rodland, as well as fashion by Rachel Chandler, Osma Harvilahti, Estelle Hanania & Benoît Bèthume, Tina Tyrell and Joanna Piotrowska.
Since its inception in 1998, Tank’s quality and thinking has been founded on the quality of people we talk to and collaborate with on every page of the magazine. Published as a luxurious collectable quarterly, each issue delves into a prescient cultural theme- at-large. Tank takes the time for deep consideration of ideas across fashion, literature, architecture, music, politics, film, art, design, society, technology. From the emerging to the established, the creative to the commercial, the esoteric to the political, Tank’s readers and partners both represent and value a progressive point of view, originality, flair and style, and a global perspective.
Not just a stylish publication for coffee tables, Tank readers effortlessly use mobile or tablet devices to scan each issue with the Fashion Scan app (owned and developed by Tank) – simultaneously engaging with both the print and digital facets of Tank's editorial in one sitting.
