“I did masturbate to Elvis the first time. But I didn’t know what it was. It was like a new thing for me.” – John Waters.
Introducing Autre’s 8th issue – a little late for Summer, but timely nonetheless – featuring the inimitable Pope Of Trash himself, John Waters, in conversation with LA-based artist and musician Seth Bogart. At 10 pages, 3,500 words and portraits by Bennet Perez on the beach in Provincetown, it’s the filthiest and most entertaining interview Autre has ever published.
Autre also visits the midnight movie Psychomagic mystic, Alejandro Jodorowsky at his apartment in Paris for a conversation with writer Patrick Steffen about beauty, meeting Kenneth Anger, and sex as a creative energy. You will also find conversations between curator Hamza Walker and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, celebrated California Minimalists Helen Pashgian and Larry Bell, and Donna Huanca discusses her solo museum exhibition at the Marciano Foundation with Lita Albuquerque, and A Cold Wall*’s Samuel Ross and industrial designer Ron Arad on working class architecture. In addition, Urs Fischer, choreographer Madeline Hollander And Jeffrey Deitch discuss art in the age of cobotics. Autre also talks to photographer Paul Mpagi Sepuya on the pornography of images, artist Christina Quarles on fragmented figuration, and they sit down with Connan Mockasin for dessert at The Lodge Room in Los Angeles.
In this issue, you will also find an essay on Tomaso Buzzi’s erotic city two hours north of Rome with photographs by Matthew Modine, and an essay by photographer Matthew Rolston on the legend of Harper’s Bazaar’s editor Carmel Snow.
