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.
Bless begins with a beautiful story: In 1996, the entirely unknown fashion label of sorts announced its existence to the world via an advertisement in the British style bible i-D, offering a – fur wig. Maybe naively expecting the world to take notice, the phone ended up ringing just once, but as it happens, it turned out to be a call from Paris. A few months later, all models for Maison Martin Margiela’sAutumn / Winter 1997 collection ended up wearing fur wigs on the catwalk. The fashion world took notice, and Bless got the attention it had hoped for, after all.
