Think about it for a moment and you know that as an ego – even as a strong ego, as a creative ego – you will not achieve anything if you don’t invite others in.
In 032c Issue 36, our dossier examines WORKING OUT LOUD: a strategy for a better career and life, plucked from the cutting edge of corporate management theory and appropriated for creative practice. Rapper PLAYBOI CARTI opens up his process – and his wardrobe – to photographer RENELL MEDRANO. BEATRIZ COLOMINA digs up the kinks and perversions of the BAUHAUS for a eulogy 100 years after its birth. A spooked out CHARLIE FOX writes a suicide note from the home of eternal misanthrope THOMAS BERNHARD. HELENE HEGEMANN heads to Paris to speak to author VIRGINIE DESPENTES, who loves her dog, but hates most people. German sociologist HEINZ BUDE calls for new forms of solidarity as the only tonic for embitterment. Food writer turned reluctant psychonaut MICHAEL POLLAN smokes the hallucinogenic venom of a Sonoran Desert Toad. STERLING RUBY reveals his first ready-to-wear collection, and ELI RUSSELL LINNETZ celebrates the occasion by turning the artist’s LA studio into a Roman coliseum. MARTINE ROSE questions the existence of time in an east London café, and photographers SHARNA OSBORNE, OLIVER HADLEE PEARCH, and HEJI SHIN capture the British designer’s menswear genius in three acts. In three stories styled by 032c fashion director MARC GOEHRING, JONAS LINDSTROEM sets fire to the Burberry trench in a cinematic feature starring NYARACH AYUEL, model IRINA SHAYK bares her teeth to HUGO COMTE, and MALGOSIA BELA gets 3D printed by THOMAS LOHR.
