The Winter 2022/23 of 032c has landed. A publication rooted in fashion and media and intended to inform, provoke, and activate the imagination, the 032c universe continues to expand.
This edition begins with a grainy photograph of editor Joerg Koch's 80-year-old mother-in-law's new (and first) tattoo. Three geometric shapes and a 'crawling punky' spider. The spider, Koch explains, is a reference to the work of philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and his thoughts on existentialism, particularly 'the vertigo of the modern experience.'
Anna's tattoo has informed much of Koch's thinking in recent months and, as such, informs this issue too. An issue celebrating 'the spider-like heroes harnessing that possibility and embracing the [spidery] plunge.'
