“THE HOSPITAL OF THE FUTURE”
“It seemed like eternal life was within reach… but at what cost, and by whose work?”
The Office of Metropolitan Architecture’s third cover dossier for 032c considers THE HOSPITAL OF THE FUTURE: the world’s next biggest design problem. As new attitudes and technologies emerge alongside novel viruses, the research team behind this speculative report, introduced by OMA partner REINIER DE GRAAF, asks: What could the hospital be, tomorrow?
TROIS FEMMES PUISSANTES: Pop princess DUA LIPA spellbinds in High London Goth for Jordan Hemingway’s analog lens. Poet, photographer, songstress, and star SHYGIRL gets comfortable in her own lane, and ERIC JOHNSON meets her there. K-pop star turned solo rap queen CL proves there is Alpha status after the girl group. Historian KARL SCHLÖGEL tracks the scent of totalitarianism, following the perfume of imperial Europe from COCO CHANEL to the Kremlin. A-Cold-Wall* designer SAMUEL ROSS talks W.E.B. Du Bois, streetwear, and the semiotics of working-class England. With an international footprint in contemporary art, gallerists MONIKA SPRÜTH and PHILOMENE MAGERS provide a case study in 21st-century globalism. WU TSANG, BOYCHILD, JOSH JOHNSON, and ASMA MAROOF represent MOVED BY THE MOTION: a “roving band” that grew out of LA’s queer party scene, now settled in a theater in Zürich. Pasolini, Mussolini, VILLA FELTRINELLI: in an interview with the Grand Hotel’s MARKUS ODERMATT, SVEN MICHAELSEN explores the fraught and fabulous history of a luxury oasis on Lake Garda. And, at last, DANKO and ANA STEINER return their fashion romance to the pages of 032c, bringing supermodel GEORGIA PALMER back from the depths with them.
PLUS – Marcel Proust went looking for it, but we found it: Société de 032c presents LE TEMPS PERDU. Editor Felix Burrichter celebrates PIN-UP’s quinceañera; producer Black Noi$e gets silly at home in Detroit; DJ Amelie Lens eyes new talent; and shapewear entrepreneur Emma Grede trades glass ceilings for glass walls. We end the issue, as we always do, with our favorite books of the season in a new installment of BERLIN REVIEW.

Whitney Museum of American Art
Handbook of the Collection
This easy to carry reference book takes a fresh look at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s collection, highlights the museum’s extraordinary holdings and its fascinating history. Featuring iconic pieces by artists such as Calder, Hopper, Johns, O’Keeffe, and Warhol—as well as numerous works by under-recognized individuals—this is not only a guide to the Whitney’s collection, but also a remarkable primer on modern and contemporary American art.
Beautifully illustrated with abundant new photography, the book pairs scholarly entries on 350 artists with images of some of their most significant works. The museum’s history and the evolution of its collection, including the Whitney’s important distinction as one of the few American museums founded by an artist, and the notion of “American” in relation to the collection, are covered in two short essays. Published to coincide with the Whitney’s highly anticipated move to a new facility in downtown New York in the spring of 2015, this book celebrates the museum’s storied past and vibrant present as it looks ahead to its future. Edited by Dana Miller; With an introduction by Adam D. Weinberg.
Paperback. 432 pp. 6 1/2 x 9 inches. 440 color ill. Whitney Museum, 2015.

Issue 7 of Alice.D Magazine explores the shitty double standard of social media censorship, celebrating freedom of expression. Uncensored and unapologetic.
In this issue, writer and philosopher Federico Campagna, in a surprisingly conversation with Andrea Bellini about the end of the world, explains that a world is a “‘likely story’ about reality” and that “after a while, each cosmological narration exhausts its narrative cycle and it comes to an end.” According to Campagna, each of us go through several “ends of the world.” Spanning from these reflections we titled the issue Cultural Apocalypses dedicating our cover story to Cao Fei, one of the most farsighted artists on the international scene which discusses here her explorations of worlds both real and virtual with Daniel Birnbaum, Hou Hanru, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Philip Tinari.
