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.

BLOCKBUSTER FAIL

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 [...]

WHEN TO SAY NOTHING

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. Photographer Daniel Arnold on the other hand has a whopping 100k+ followers and for good reason: his images speak about our lives rather than his, [...]

PRINT NOSTALGIA 02

Now that the mother of all streetstyle magazines, i-D, has been swallowed up by the Vice empire for a bright and digital future, it’s only fair enough to cash in on the long legacy of the printed edition with a look back at 35 years’ worth of more than 300 covers featuring that famous wink.

PRINT NOSTALGIA 01

Last night opened the exhibition Fashion Stories, curated by Wolfgang Tillmans at his Between Bridges space, showcasing a broad range of fashion photography from the 2980s and ’90s. 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 [...]

In addition, some 90 studios and galleries will be open to visitors as [...]

VICTORIA

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 [...]

WALKING IN NEW YORK

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 [...]

mono.ride

Oh yes, the new data-enhanced Rapha Pro collection looks like a crooked mono.kultur logo in motion. And in case you don’t care about riding, you can also sit, of course. Or take the train, tonight.

BRONX BOYS

‘The Bronx felt like home to me because the people I photographed took me into their hearts and made me family. When you are family, a place can still be dangerous at times but it is home.’ It’s this discrepancy between violence and poverty on one side, family and belonging on the other, [...]
