ALYX / Nick Knight: “THE SOUND OF LIGHT’S OWN DESTRUCTION” Opening and Société de 032c Bar Night
This weekend’s Société de 032c barnight, taking place just ten days after summer solstice, was held to celebrate the cosmic force “The Sound of Light’s Own Destruction,” an exhibition at the 032c WORKSHOP Vitrine by the designer Matthew Williams and fashion photographer Nick Knight for the New York-based label ALYX.
Screens showed spontaneously combusting fireworks, held inside a vitrine of their own, their explosive, full-spectrum force captured in Ultra HD. Elsewhere, 032c and Johann König screened the explosive German side beating Italy 6-5 on penalties. Click through to see portraits by Lukas Gansterer.
"People often just pillory the hipster aesthetic, as if the beards and suspenders were the actual problem," says Dushko Petrovich, creator of THE DAILY GENTRIFIER. The publication finds ways to talk about paralysis, guilt, and the aesthetics and language of that dirty g-word. More
“Globally, if we look at the 50 percent who live outside of cities, there are actually two billion people living in the countryside, not working in agriculture. They live in the countryside and we don’t know what they do there.” – Rem Koolhaas, “Countryside,” 032c Issue #23.
Opening this week at the Guggenheim museum in New York, “Countryside: The Future” exhibits the last decade of Koolhaas’ work outside the city – which, hopefully, has shed light on these activities.
