Issue #10 — Winter 2005/2006: True Zeitgenossenschaft

In celebration of the 10th issue, 032c has collaborated with Niklas Maak (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) and Ashley Heath (The Face, Arena Homme+) as guest editors to find ten phenomena in which the contemporary unmistakably manifests itself. Because there is a movement interested in what might be made of the opportunities and challenges of our time—technologically, aesthetically, and socially. “The omnipresent retro-aesthetic is the most visible sign of a collective aesthetic and political paralysis. An entire generation has given up on its present and wallows in the forms of the past.”

Artist THOMAS DEMAND rebuilds the surfaces and lines of the Lamborghini Gallardo, a car whose form bears no reference to the past; OMA’s Casa da Música spirals in Porto as the last cowboy of modernism; Vogue Paris editor CARINE ROITFELD and art director FABIEN BARON flaunt their magazine; photographer OLIVER HELBIG celebrates Europe in Istanbul; SUNN O))) makes abstract music visceral and one-ups rock ‘n’ roll; collector INGVILD GOETZ takes art beyond the déjà vu;

politician HERMANN SCHEER pits the beautiful world of renewable energy against our industrial, archaic economy; structural engineer WERNER SOBEK discovers the aesthetic potential of solar technology; writer CHRISTIAN SCHWÄGERL unleashes the brain research that makes consciousness visible; designer KONSTANTIN GRCIC and architect GIO PONTI live dangerously and felicitously contemporary; art critic HARALD FRICKE unveils artist DOUGLAS GORDON’s pact with eternity; director CHRISTIAN PETZHOLD on the violence of locations;

the BERLIN REVIEW reflects on nine evens, projects, and people from the last six months in the great cultural laboratory; and so much more on 200 pages …
