The wheel spins and what goes around comes around, they say, but it seems like cycles are getting shorter and shorter; and here we find ourselves, immersed in a world of novelty not that really new, actually. But careful, it might seem like it but we don’t understand the term as something negative. Among the photographers participating in this issue, we find habitual collaborators such as Andreas Karlsson, who signs the quadruple cover, Teddy Iborra (METAL Art Director), Felicity Ingram or Barrie Hullegie. It’s also been a pleasure to work and exchange points of view with Can Dagarslani, Zuza Krajewska, Jin Jia Ji, Luciano Insua, Guen Fiore, Anna Victoria Best and Clara Nebeling.
Regarding the interviews, throughout the pages of the new issue you’ll find artists such as Monica Bonvicini, whose work mainly focuses on fighting against the repetition of power structures; Ed Fornieles and his hyperactive and dystopian vision of social media that gives form to the drama and objects of everyday life as Instagram paranoia; the architect and object designer Oscar Hagerman, whose Arrullo chair, designed in 1969, is still made nowadays in collaboration with different rural communities in Mexico; singer Ryan Paris and his iconic Dolce Vita (is there any song that has been played more times?); choreographer Damien Jalet, who’s made the choreographies for the new Suspiria; pianist Kelly Moran, who months ago published her newest album with Warp; and the artist Hans Eijkelboom, whose project Photo Notes has been considered a part of several fields of study (art, photography, anthropology, sociology).
