“It’s obvious we need a new internationalism, but it’s not going to be politicians that get us there. We’re publishing the people we think will.”
Earlier this year, 032c contributor SHANE ANDERSON spoke to actor India Ennenga and editor Sebastian Clark, publishers of isolarii. This week isolarii releases STREET COP, a new project by Robert Coover and Art Spiegelman – and Spiegelman’s first in more than a decade. The authors, whose respective oeuvres have long grappled with political mythos, now join forces to address the current state of the American psyche. Illustrated over the course of the pandemic in 2020, this short tale is a visceral response to reality’s dissolution and a reckoning of political disaster – and a proposal for a path to emergent empathy.

Dior Men and Fendi designer KIM JONES has guest edited the April issue of Vogue Italia. Emanuele Farneti, the magazine’s in-house editor-in-chief, introduces the collaboration with a loose adaptation of the preface of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando – one of Jones’ favorite works of literature. “Many friends have helped us in writing this book,” he begins. Farneti continues:
“Some creative products are the fruit of individual talent. Others are the result of a collective effort. They grow and gain strength thanks to the contributions of people with different sensibilities and experiences. Without any doubt, Vogue Italia belongs to this second group. Every idea, every photo and every page of the magazine is the outcome of constant exchanges between the people who work on this publication. It’s the part of our job that I love the most: helping someone else’s ideas to develop, and seeing how my own ideas are strengthened and take shape when they’re challenged by the various viewpoints of my colleagues. We are a community, and at times like these, heaven knows how central the sense of sharing is to our lives.”
