Issue #6 — Winter 2003/2004: When Attitude Becomes Form

WHEN ATTITUDE BECOMES FORM: From the Cremaster field to the new domestic landscape, this issue presents the attitudes that shape forms through different times and media: 032c‘s entirely subjective selection of the movements that liberate us from conformity.  Photographer SØLVE SUNDSBØ captures the monument of isolation;

UNDERCOVER designer JUN TAKAHASHI blinds prophets, dignitaries, and other cultural icons in a series of black-and-white illustrations; writers and graffiti artists NUG & PIKE collide tagging with trance rituals; photographer ALASDAIR MCLELLAN finds adolescence’s last idyll; artist MATTHEW BARNEY takes us behind the scenes of his CREMASTER CYCLE; writer EMILY KING digs up ASPEN magazine’s protest against uniformity;

stylist and accessories designer JUDY BLAME talks with MARK HOOPER about Buffalo style, his dodgy relationship to the public, and looking stubbornly different; architecture movements SUPERSTUDIO and ARCHIZOOM disappear design; graphic designer and publisher JOP VAN BENNEKOM finds a language that is “part of” things, not hovering “above” them;

artist LIAM GILLICK plasters public information posters; writer and filmmaker ALEXANDER KLUGE elaborates on what it takes to define a social climate and being able to “throw it away if it amounts to nothing”; and so much more on 120 pages …

Contributors: Matthew Barney, Joachim Bessing, Jesko Fezer, Liam Gillick, Oliver Helbig, Mark Hooper, Emily King, Alasdair McLellan, Nug & Pike, Solve Sundsbo, Jun Takahashi/Undercover, Axel Wieder, 032c workshop

  • 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.

  • 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
