|This show aims to be a fresh look at independent publishing in the twenty-first century that focuses on 15 international, independent magazines that have originated over the past 13 years. Each stands out as a forerunner of broader cultural shifts or movements. Including publications like "032c", "Apartamento", "Bidoun", "BUTT", "Candy", "Encens", and "Sang Bleu", the exhibition's selected magazines treat subjects as varied as architecture, art, design, fashion, food, and sex. |
Sang Bleu (left image), for example, channels co-founders Maxime Büchi and Jeanne-Salomé Rochat’s fascination with body modification, fetish, and tattoos through the lenses of art, culture, and fashion. Expanding on and departing from the specific premise in unexpected ways, the result is content that has an interest and relevance well beyond the increasingly mainstream vocabulary of "tattoo culture."
