Kaleidoscope / 40
We are delighted to announce the release of KALEIDOSCOPE’s new issue #40 (spring/summer 2022), coming with a set of six covers:
Portrayed through the lens of Tobias Spichtig, Loïck Gomez aka BFRND talks to Jordan Richman about the power of difference, and the sense of community that lies therein—from his soundtracks for the Balenciaga shows, a product of his creative and life partnership with Demna, to his forthcoming debut album.
In conversation with Adam Wray, designer Matthew M. Williams and painter Josh Smith discuss the “belligerent magic” behind their latest collaboration on the Givenchy SS22 collection—with an original photo story by Jason Nocito, starring Texan emo cowboy and burgeoning fashion icon Teezo Touchdown.
East London-based rapper and producer John Glacier (photographed by Davit Giorgadze) sits down for a chat with Cyrus Goberville about her creative process—one which rejects conventions, genre distinctions, and stagnant self-narratives, in favor of intimacy, awareness, and channeling the voice of her inner child.
On the occasion of an exhibition celebrating his legacy, we look back to Tom of Finland’s egalitarian, queer utopia. Through photography by Joshua Gordon and an interview by Anastasiia Fedorova, we discover his House in Los Angeles, which exists as an archive, a museum, and an LGBTQ+ community space.
Emerged from the gay, black subculture of New York City, and situated amid a network of influences ranging from Andre Walker to the late Virgil Abloh, designer Shayne Oliver talks to Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen about his newest, collective project Anonymous Club, captured here by Marc Asekhame.
In his practice, Norwegian-German artist Yngve Holen investigates the post-human entanglement between bodies and objects of consumer culture. Interviewed by Philip Maughan, he discusses his interest in meat as a product of nature as well as a design object, negotiating the boundary between exploitation and seduction.
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.
