Middle Plane #8
Middle Plane is an independent art and fashion, bi-annual publication based in London.
Taking a collaborative and visionary approach, Middle Plane continues to redefine modes of dialogue with every issue.
In this issue:
Middle Plane’s eighth issue is here, and it’s a memorandum on the current state of modernity and an attempt to figure out what the hell ‘modern’ even means?!
We’ve turned to our favourite collaborators in our quest to define the word and have received many thoughtful results in return.
Marina Abramović and Willem Dafoe are photographed by the always modern Juergen Teller, and chat fresh approaches to classical artforms with Dan Thawley. Hans Ulrich Obrist and Alvaro Barrington unpack modernity in the artist’s work, and what exhibitions need to be today in order to remain relevant. And Urs Fischer invites his friend Awol Erizku to his LA home to contemplate what modernity feels like, and what it promises.
As always, you can expect pages on pages of gorgeous editorials with contributions from such venerable talent as Angela Hill, Sam Rock, Jamie Hawkesworth, Fumiko Imano, Torbjørn Rødland, and Tamara Rothstein. Contributions from artists Marc Isaacs, Walter Pfeiffer, and Gelitin sit side-by-side with textual offerings from the likes of Helmut Lang, Kengo Kuma, Paul Elliman, Isabelle Huppert, Alexa Chung and The White Pube.
If you’ve been wondering ‘What is modern?’ We have some answers for you.
