032c is a fashion and art magazine published twice a year.
In this issue, artist Sterling Ruby shares his archive of workwear, a collection of clothing that appears as next century’s post-apocalyptic craft. Developed initially as a uniform for his Los Angeles studio, the garments are part of a larger, self-cannibalizing material practice that includes his sculptures and paintings. In light of Germany’s newfound powerful and complex role on the world stage, journalist Joachim Bessing and sociologist Heinz Bude seek to untangle the psyche of a country through its mysterious figurehead leader, Angela Merkel.
In the wake of Hood By Air’s sexually charged takeover of the shop windows at Barneys New York, Creative Directors Shayne Oliver (HBA), Dennis Freedman (Barneys), and Babak Radboy (Telfar) discuss public transportation, dermatology, and the legacy of Helmut Lang over martini glasses filled with ceviche.
