Our brandnew issue mono.kultur #45 with acclaimed writer and raconteur Richard Price is accompanied by stunning images by New York cab driver turned photographer Joseph Rodriguez, from a series called Spanish Harlem, documenting street life in the late 1980s with grit, intimacy and grain. As it happens, the series is currently on show at Galerie [...]


Dear Friends,
mono.kultur #45 is our homage to the great mythical city that is New York. And who better to talk to about New York than Richard Price?

Pimp Someone’s Ride

Whatever happened to suburban car tuning?, wondered Max Siedentopf. To help people figure out their individual car style, Siedentopf pimped cars overnight adding cardboard modifications. In an interview with the Telegraph he stressed his concern that the potential of self-expression is often neglected in cars.


The German blockbuster-directer Roland Emmerich has just released a trailer for his new movie Stonewall, and it’s been already discussed controversially, particularly about its lack of authenticity. Just to quickly recap: The Stonewall Riots were a series of protests in 1969 against the police by the LGBT community in New York after a police raid in [...]


It’s rare to come across an Instagram account that goes beyond the personally mundane and actually captures a little of that something that defines living in our days and time.

More than that, it is a hommage to street style magazines such as i-D or The Face that proved so influential for generations of image and fashion [...]


No plans for the weekend yet? Don’t miss the festival 48 STUNDEN NEUKÖLLN, presenting a myriad of approaches to the festival’s theme in 2015, “S.O.S. – Art saves the world” in the form of around 350 artistic projects at approximately 220 venues. In addition, some 90 studios and galleries will be open to visitors as [...]


Another thing going down in Berlin: tonight opens Sebastian Schipper’s highly anticipated rollercoaster of a film, Victoria, which snaffled all the buzz during the Berlinale film festival. It tells a classic story of a (nightlife) adventure turned nightmare, but it tells it all in one single, uninterrupted take. Sounds like a crazy undertaking in and [...]


Tomorrow, The New York Times Magazine (under the art direction of Matt Willey, who also designed our ever so popular issue with Chris Ware) will feature one of the most impressive covers I’ve seen in a while, featuring a giant 50m-tall paste-up by street artist JR, on the theme of walking in the city. Nice [...]
