What’s inside the latest issue of Aesthetica Magazine:
Chen Ke, one of China’s young rising stars, discusses her work and looks at this era of abandonment, while grappling with its truths and consequences. Peter Saville examines the democratisation and changing aesthetic of design. Also, highlights and recommendations from this year’s Venice Biennale, and a new perspective on contemporary Polish art, as well as the 10 must see exhibitions.
Many of the features look at the grey areas between right and wrong, such as Fred Cavaye’s recent film ‘Pour Elle’, and Matt Charman’s new production, ‘The Observer’, which opens at the National Theatre this summer. In keeping with the DIY theme, we’re running a two-part guide on How to Make A Short Film, as well as admiring the enterprising attitude of new British band, Morton Valence. Finally, we chat with Daniel Charny about ‘Super Contemporary’ at the Design Museum.
This issue reminds us that we are innovative and can break away from the assembly line of manufactured culture. In fact, it pays homage to the spirit of that idea.
