Time Traveling with ALEX MULLINS by NICOLE MARIA WINKLER and AARON SILLIS

Since landing on the London design scene in spring of 2013, menswear designer ALEX MULLINS has become known for his self-contained fabricated realities which nevertheless evoke a sense of the familiar. His obsession with Americana is clear; References to 1950s Baltimore, native American biker gangs, cowboys, and surreal patchwork are all rooted in archetypal images, imbuing his designs with a cinematic quality. 032c commissioned an editorial of Mullins’ work by photographer NICOLE MARIA WINKLER and choreographer AARON SILLIS. Shot in a south London house left untouched since the 1970s, the series is framed as a visual exploration of the connection between body language, performance and dance. Model Pat Boguslawski features as the protagonist, seemingly melting into the shag carpeting and wood panelling. A video shot by Winkler accompanies the editorial.

  • BLAU JOB

    This October, BLAU - the German-speaking world’s highest-circulation art magazine - launched its English-language version. “We believe in the transformative power of art, that not everything is interesting and urgent, and that you needn’t speak with everyone and be everywhere," says editor-in-chief Cornelius Tittel. "We consciously run the risk of missing out on the occasional shooting star born after 1989. But that leaves us time to take a new look at old masters." 032c sits down with Tittel in the magazine's Berlin Kurfürstendamm HQ. More
