mono.kultur is an independant interview magazine from Berlin. Our concept is as beautiful as it is simple: one issue, one person, one conversation - no more, no less. And so each issue is dedicated entirely and exclusively to one artist from the various fields of culture. Carefully edited, lovingly designed and produced, we want to provide the artists we admire with the time and space they deserve. This one comes from the heart. mono.kultur appears quarterly and in English.
We’re particularly thrilled to have the American photographer Ryan McGinley as our guest for mono.kultur #27, since McGinley’s colourful and vivid photographs capture the zeitgeist of a generation like no other. Celebrating the sweet and fleeting state of youth, his images are suffused with colour, light and energy. N
aked kids climbing trees, running through the desert, rolling down hills, suspended in the air, diving into lakes, leaping through fireworks – there’s a lightness and carelessness and beauty to McGinley’s images that is utterly addictive. His powerful depictions of youth in the here and now are a raw and personal declaration of love to life with all its highs and lows. ,
