Issue #13 — Summer 2007: Energy Experimentation

“Maybe we only ever learn something when some form we think of as foreign provokes us—and we resist. But sometimes, many times, in the middle of the resistance, we end up loving this thing that has provoked us.” For 032c‘s 13th issue, we welcome art director MIKE MEIRÉ’s redesign with new forms of energy and experimentation.

Meanwhile, filmmaker WERNER HERZOG’s diary of his 1974 trip from Munich to Paris—on foot—documents a radical will for survival: “When I have to get up now, a mammoth will arise”; artist ANSELM REYLE manipulates light and color; artist JONATHAN MEESE manifests conflict in bronze; art critic NIKLAS MAAK abolishes the antagonism between ecology and high tech; architect and dean MARK WIGELY theorizes on the strange life forms of architecture with writer JOACHIM BESSING; artist CYPRIEN GAILLARD vandalizes modernism; architect EINAR THORSTEINN discusses NASA, the Golden Ration, and the “real questions”; designer NAOTO FUKASAWA talks to designer KONSTANTIN GRCIC and dissolves his products into our behavior; curator ROGER M. BUERGEL serves up a “content baroque”;

JEFF KOONS talks politics and fear; the three-part series AXIS OF EVIL profiles artist ANDREAS GURSKY penetrating the geo-political fortress that is North Korea, artist TREVOR PAGLEN turning his lens to the moonlight activities of the CIA, and photographer SIMON NORFOLK revealing new forms of war photography; Vogue features editor SALLY SINGER enunciates optimism and Vogue‘s idea of life;

the BERLIN REVIEW reflects on ten events, projects, and people from the past six months in Berlin; and so much more on 256 pages …

  • Thus Spoke Bischofberger: Artforum’s Eternally Swiss Back Cover

    An advertisement for the art gallery belonging to dealer and collector Bruno Bischofberger has occupied the back cover of every issue of Artforum since April 1987. Seen out of context and en masse, the eternally Swiss contents of these promotions at first appear idiosyncratic; upon further scrutiny, however, they seem insane.More

  • Salty, Litigious, Iconoclastic: DAVID SIMON on TV as discourse

  • CROSS-DRESSING IN THE WEHRMACHT: Unseen Practices at the German Front

    While collecting amateur photography from periods during and after the war, Berlin-based visual artist Martin Dammann would, “from time to time,” stumble upon photographs of cross-dressing soldiers. Provoked, he began to seek out more, drawn to the “kaleidoscope of emotional states” that they revealed: “Desire for women. Desire for men. To be a woman. To be elsewhere. To be someone else.” More
  • THE BIG FLAT NOW: Power, Flatness, and Nowness in the Third Millennium

    As a contemporary metaphor, flatness describes how the invention of the Internet has restructured global society. At its origin, its promise was a social revolution founded on intersectional equality and universal democracy. It is our contention that that promise may yet be fully realized.More
