Ahead of the Google Pixel 2 public launch, Google partnered up with 032c to transform its Berlin Headquarters into a LED-lit tech workshop last week. Sipping on packaged survival water, the guests were guided through the new gadget’s features, equipped to adapt to your every moment, by specialists dressed in 032c’s Religious Services 3M Heather Sweatshirt.

For REFERENCE FESTIVAL #2 032c presents our new “20 Years” anniversary edition, celebrating the magazine’s first two decades in print with a lush selection of images from the latest issue’s special 28-page fold-out. Accompanying the visual essay are archival videos showcasing 032c’s ready to wear and cultural production and highlights from the media and fashion brand’s core inspirations – from its guiding principles as a manual for “Freedom, Research, and Creativity” to Italian philosopher Antonio Gramsci’s essential call: “Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will.”
Also visible via the REFERENCE REALITIES virtual platform, today – Friday January 22 – the project will be broadcast throughout Berlin on a physical four-screen mobile LED truck, bringing 032c’s past and future vision to the streets of our hometown.
In 032c Issue #38, we celebrate our first two decades with a 28-page fold-out chronicling our evolution from DIY Berlin to the world of ready-to-wear, featuring commentary and a timeline of global 21st century cultural production by tech and media arbiter NEW MODELS, a visual audit by VIRGIL ABLOH, and a message from ANNA WINTOUR.
