Issue #37 — Winter 2019/2020: “Black Hole Catalog”

We can scream “fire!” and call for help, but we can’t evacuate when the burning house is planet Earth — certainly not now, probably not ever. We’re stuck inside, even when we’re out striking. 

In 032c Issue #37, we publish BLACK HOLE CATALOG, a 40-page dossier by INTERIORS AGENCY that offers survival strategies and coping mechanisms for life in THE NEW INTERIOR: the crisis-ridden planetary environment we inhabit today. Dior’s leading man KIM JONES leads photographer JACKIE NICKERSON and writer JACK SELF on a tour of his new ultra-brutalist digs in London – and flaunts his collector chops. A TRIP TO JAMAICA takes us into the inner world of the pope of dub, LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY. Inside his New York studio, artist TOM SACHS sips (and spills) tea with Uniqlo’s JOHN C JAY. India’s prize-winning modernist BALKRISHNA DOSHI rejects private property, and architects stunning public housing and institutions instead. Tokyo’s perennially rebellious JUN TAKAHASHI finds authenticity in pop culture for UNDERCOVER. Painter THOMAS SCHEIBITZ faces off with Picasso in Berlin.

Meanwhile, PIERRE-ANGE CARLOTTI directs a trilogy of Parisian stories across the city’s design ateliers and hôtel particuliers, chronicling a season in fashion through the eyes of leading ladies ANJA RUBIK, SHAY, KEMBRA PFAHLER, MICHÈLE LAMY, and LAETITIA CASTA.

PLUS: Société de 032c presents WORKING AND NOT WORKING with musician Blood Orange and OAMC creative director Luke Meier, Los Angeles legend Eva Chow, the boys of the Berlin skate hub Civilist, London’s radical curator Stefan Kalmár, the Moscow concept retailer Olga Karput, GQ editor-in-chief Will Welch, touring R&B crooner Miguel, Brooklyn bricoleur Nicole McLaughlin, and philosopher of horror Eugene Thacker. And finally, we dive into our favorite books of the season for BERLIN REVIEW.

  • DISAPPEARING BERLIN 2021

    In a city undergoing rapid change, the Schinkel Pavillion's event series DISAPPEARING BERLIN brings artists and audiences to iconic architectural spaces facing redevelopment. On September 18 and 19 2021, DISAPPEARING BERLIN returns alongside Reference Studios with a dynamic program of artist talks, performances, and interventions at Bierpinsel – a brutal gem of 1970s futurism that, after years on the market and more than a decade of vacancy, has recently been sold to a private developer.
