Kaleidoscope / 37
KALEIDOSCOPE‘s new issue #37 (fall/winter 2020-21), a special edition labeled OUT THERE, entirely dedicated to the ethics and aesthetics of the outdoors.
Aiming to provide a timely take on geography and ecology through the lens of visual culture, our research steps out of the enclosed spaces of the artist’s studio, the museum, and the gallery (which Robert Smithson called “non-sites”) to look at art that's created outdoors and concerns itself with the natural environment, the street, and the outer space. In the age of lockdowns, forest fires, and rising sea levels, we examine the consequences of the Anthropocene through artist portfolios, visual essays, interviews, and trend reports—addressing a variety of topics such as geotechnology, food justice, terraforming, climate grief, land art, techwear, surveillance, war, and survivalism.
Furthering our new graphic identity by Swiss art direction and graphic design studio Kasper-Florio, once again “hacked” by a set of illustrations by Berlin-based studio PWR, the magazine’s launch will be celebrated with a multidisciplinary exhibition taking place at Spazio Maiocchi in the fall.
Founded in 2009 in Milan, KALEIDOSCOPE is the international art media company defined by its curatorial and interdisciplinary attitude towards the New. A combination of ambitious content and iconic design makes it a meeting point for contemporary art and creative communities around the world.
