2 new covers Sleek: Future Perfect
Talent and technology: two phenomena guaranteed to bring the future into the present, and change the way we think, see, feel and act. For the Winter 2013 issue of Sleek our team of writers, editors, photographers and stylists major on those two themes to compile a unique portfolio of stories with captivating visual treatments. We go deep into the “Post-Medium Condition” during this summer’s 55th Venice Biennale, discover exactly what artists are doing with 3D printers – the “creative destroyer” technology that’s coming to a desktop near you – and consider why “techno blue” is the colour of our era.
We travel to London via Antwerp and Amsterdam to meet fashion’s most exciting new graduate talent, and hear from established practitioners including Tacita Dean, Thomas Ruff, Tal R, Jonathan Horowitz and others, on whom they’re tipping for future art-world success. Plus, we drop in on Amalia Pica in London, Ingvild Goetz in Munich, and John Bock, Monica Bonvicini, Manfred Peckl and Rosa Barba in Berlin.
