1. Apartamento #29

Apartamento is widely recognized as today's most influential interiors magazine. International, well-designed, and simply written since 2008, it is an indispensable resource for individuals who are passionate about the way they live. Apartamento breaks the traditional magazine boundaries that separate home design from homeowner, and offers readers a glimpse inside the lived-in, often cluttered homes of celebrities and industry legends.

2. See All This #26

Bereid je voor om je tanden te zetten in het vlezigste nummer ooit van See All This, geïnspireerd door het werk van kunstenaar Francis Bacon die de grens tussen mens en beest laat vervagen. Verlustig je aan tweehonderd pagina’s vlees in al zijn verschijningsvormen, tegen een achtergrond van het complete spectrum van menselijke huidtinten. Word betoverd door mythische schepsels, half mens-half beest, godheden die door hun verbondenheid met de natuurlijke wereld in het bezit blijken van iets bovenmenselijks. See All This #26 onderzoekt onze liefdevolle relatie met andere dieren, en is een noodzakelijke reminder dat we uiteindelijk allemaal vlees zijn.

3. MacGuffin: The Chain

From charms and chokers to shackles and fetters, MacGuffin 11 explores the many manifestations of that most contradictory of objects: ‘The Chain’. Worn with love since time immemorial, it is also the ultimate symbol of slavery and suffering. Linking together royals and rappers, provocative punks and crashed cars, cycling skirts and classic scarfs, caged wrestlers and medieval warriors, hyperlinks and haunted houses, Baltic protestors and Cuban revolutionaries, 'The Chain' features Inigo Laguda, Jacqueline de Jong, Harris Blondman, Scheltens & Abbenes, Olivia Ahmad, Rab Messina, Kai Lobjakas, and many more.

4. Cabana #17

Cabana explores the close relationship each person has with interiors, not only grand rooms but the small detail in the corner that makes a room feel unique yet personal. Cabana Magazine is a biannual publication. Each issue will take you on a journey of obsessive collecting, colors, textiles and objets d'art brought to life through vivid photography. 

5. 032C #41

‘Jesus’ shoes filled with Holy Water. ‘Satan’ ones filled with blood. An unauthorized Hermès / Birkenstock hybrid. Backed by venture capital and buffered by in-house legal counsel, MSCHF will lift your logo and sell it as their own—if you’re lucky. The 032c Issue #41 dossier is an insider’s guide to the New York collective conjuring mystique (and money) with trickster magic. Elsewhere, Nan Goldin and Durga Chew-Bose trace the limitless lines of Julie Mehretu, whose fellow painter Julian Schnabel lets Sven Michaelsen into his (mostly outdoor) inner sanctum. Thomas Jeppe uncovers the Ballardian base layers of painter Sergio Sarri, caught in Paris by Pierre-Ange Carlotti, and Mahfuz Sultan travels the vaporous world of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the architectural powerhouse blurring the boundaries and buildings of cultural space. Max Dax assembles an oral history of Hard Wax, the Kreuzberg record store making Berlin the European epicenter of techno since 1989. Across the Atlantic, Dallas is an unlikely blueprint for urban futures, distilled in 41 points By Zac Crain. Lourdes ‘Lola’ Leon is fire and ice for Angelo Dominic Sesto. Ras Bartram makes his 032c fashion director debut with four editorials, outfitting Mona Tougaard under big skies for Jackie Nickerson, tying knots with Kristina Nagel, playing house with Goi Manase for Szilveszter Makó, and channeling the northern lights with Frederrike Sofie for Casper Sejersen.

6. Mirror Mirror #14

Mirror Mirror Magazine is multi-layered like make-up, and designed to engage readers with an eye for beauty and a sense for quality. The starting point is always beauty, both in the editorial and photographic content. Building on years of skill Mirror Mirror aims to be beauty herself. The appearance of the magazine will be multi-faceted: modern yet accessible; intelligently inspiring and feminine; playfully edgy with a touch of glamour and surrealism.


1. Butt #30

For many readers in the early to mid-aughts, Butt was something of a revolution. The quarterly indie magazine, with its signature soft pink colors and erotic portraits of gay men, broke ground for pushing against the mainstream and well-groomed aesthetic for something dirtier, raunchier and authentic. Indeed, Butt made body hair, beards, pits and bellies the norm for an entire community in its pages. And now, nearly 10 years after its last print issue, the publication is coming back next month for its 30th issue. It’s being relaunched with the help of Bottega Veneta (they are the sole advertiser of the new issue). Issue #31 is due by september 2022.

2. Real Review #12

The people and things we want feel very far away. Everything else feels far too near. Daily life is incorrectly calibrated. Lockdown kept us painfully apart. The virtual keeps us painfully together. Everyone wants the same thing. We all crave spaciousness. We all feel too close, without any closeness. This paradoxical sensation of claustrophobia and isolation is a condition of ‘absolute proximity’.

Inside Real Review #12

Have we changed? We interview archaeologist David Wengrow on the dawn of everything. Philosophers Slavoj Zizek and Timothy Morton agree about the future of humans on planet Earth. Design studio Metahaven contribute an insert on the stuff of experience and sensation. Photographer Tacita Dean captures a boat abandoned at sea. An essay by Ursula K. Le Guin reviews the Hero narrative, with photography by Magali Reus. Film curator Róisín Tapponi reviews fake nails, while Jack Self reviews lateral flow tests and mindfulness.

3. Further Reading #3

In its third issue, Further Reading explores the theme of graphic design and graphic design, up to now still perceived as a ‘Western’ discipline, with working methods and perspectives that largely derive directly from the West.
This situation presents us with the imperative to deepen the practice of graphic design outside the current canon, particularly in the southern parts of Asia and neighboring countries.
The third issue begins with a visual abstraction on the juxtaposition of internal and external environments that constitutes a unique way of seeing. Then a ball of national history, heritage and identity, presented through a multitude of perspectives, each coming from different nations and cultural backgrounds. From Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia.
On a more personal note, the issue also features explorations of sexual identity through graphic design and life reports from very different countries in the form of a weather report.
We then move on to diasporic experiences, through a selection of books, which is then continued with an analysis of the immigrant's experience in cinema studies.

4. Spyros Rennt, Portraits

Spyros Rennt is a Greek photographer and artist who is based in Berlin. His work is autobiographical. The images he produces are a result of an exploration of sexuality and identity and provide a documentation of intimate relationships, male sensuality and queer contemporary spaces, conveying emotions that range from raw to tender.

‘I have gotten used to making work that mostly centers around my personal experiences, sometimes giving away intimate moments, it’s some kind of therapy for me. I have to say however that there is a filter to what I shoot and what I end up sharing with the world; there is always a sense of curation in my head, especially when I make a publication. Whenever I share something very personal, there is a certain statement that I want to make.’

5. Process #2

In this issue, we take a deep dive into the merits of doing nothing. Creative and critical breakthroughs often happen when we are in an idle state of mind, so why don't we allow ourselves to do nothing more often? We speak to OJ Law, Atira Ariffin, Sharon Chin, Max Jala and Mandy Gioh to understand how stopping to smell the roses can be an unsung form of influence. Other contributors include: Trisha Toh, Khadijah Mirzan, Vanissa Foo, huruf, Dennis Ong, Lienne Loy, Othniel Ting, Tan Zi Hao and LingJie Tuang.

6. Terrible People #5

Terrible People is an independent magazine, which displays the ‘dark sides’ of human beings in a light and satirical way. Through essays, illustrations, interviews, photography [...] we explore different ways of thinking and try to reflect on our own behaviour. So, open up your minds, people! In our Youth issue we’re speaking about those so-called lazy, good for nothing teenagers, who don’t get their asses off the sofa. So let this sarcastic and taunting issue show you the darker sides in all of us.

7. This is Badland #5

Badland Magazine is a biannual print publication dedicated to the exploration of art, design and culture from the Balkans and beyond. The pages of this 5th issue 'to be free' respond to a new awareness of liberty in an attempt to explore what it means ‘to be free’ at this point in time. Floating between naive utopianism and dead ends, we hope this issue somehow holds a promise that perhaps we will be born anew — in the right place at the right time.

8. MsHeresies #4

Dit zine is gemaakt door het grafisch designbureau Rietlanden Women’s Office geïnspireerd door de oude feministische magazines Ms. en Heresies. In nummer vier nemen ze een hoofdstuk uit Rosalind Belbens boek Daffodils onder de loep.

MsHeresies is an inquiry into collaborative graphic design practices and the ornamental as a form of work critique.’

9. Discarded #1

Discarded Magazine is an online magazine focused on contemporary photography, investigating the nature of discarding photographs. In 2021, Discarded has launched a new section – XXX – dedicated to a new vision of contemporary erotic photography. It is curated by photographer and writer Linda Zhengová. This new section was first launched as an open call from which an online exhibition was created.

‘Due to the high amount of quality submissions and positive responses from the audience, we decided to turn XXX into a unique bi-annual print magazine. We strongly believe that erotic imagery surrounding the themes of desires, sexuality, and photography in general, needs to be showcased to the public in order to strip it of the taboo it has for so long carried. With XXX printed magazine, we hope to provide you with an intensive and liberating aesthetic experience regardless of where you are located.’

10. Zweikommasieben #25

‘The new edition features a text by DeForrest Brown Jr. dedicated to the multiple talents of Dawn Richard: an exploration of why fans could be drawn to her practice. Jasmin Hoek visits a new museum in Amsterdam that is dedicated to techno and club culture to investigate whether such an institution can be true to something we all have been fans of. In Anna Froelicher’s interview with Price, the artist elaborates on how he plays with both institutions’ and fans’ conceptualization of his music.

Starting a magazine as a fan implies a particular way of producing that is hands-on and characterized by a DIY mentality. While fanzines are imagined to result in simple products, the new edition of zweikommasieben shows just the opposite. Inspired by techniques like photocopying, the magazine represents a complex composition: pages can be taken apart, rearranged, and all content works in a poster format. Next to reading about your favorite artists, you can pin every article on your bedroom wall to admire them.’
