In this issue, you will find the first interview in ten years with Tino Sehgal, one of the most important artists in the world, whose work mainly focuses on the relationship between art and the viewer, and between movement and music. You will take a closer look at the work of a Moldovan artist Pavel Brăila, who has repeatedly presented his work at documenta and Manifesta, focusing on his national identity, capitalism, and post-communism. You will also read an interview with Agata Ingarden, winner of the first edition of Allegro Prize, a competition for visual artists organised by Allegro and Contemporary Lynx Magazine. In addition, you will be able to take a look into the daily work of designers Justyna Fałdzińska and Miłosz Dąbrowski, founders of the UAU project, and delve into the everyday life of the London community depicted in the largest painting by Dale Lewis. The world of Helmut Newton‘s fashion photography will be introduced by Matthias Harder, director of the Berlin-based Helmut Newton Foundation. The well-known French collector and patron of the arts, Antoine de Galbert, will talk about the creation of his extraordinary collection of over three thousand works.
There will also be issues related to communities created within the film and theatre industries. You will have a unique opportunity to read the script of Krzysztof Kieślowski‘s unrealised film ‘Shot of the Week,’ which is presented to the public for the first time. We will also take a closer look at theatrical scenography as an independent artistic field.
The first step into the discussion of the multi-layered meaning of our main theme is a playful collaboration on the cover — a colouring page, handcrafted by a British artist Paola Ciarska. The cover she created is a painting which shows the interiors of houses filled with furniture, decorations, and residents. Everyone can complete this painting and colour it any way they like, becoming its co-author. As a fun fact, this meticulously refined picture has elements of interior design, of which our readers sent photos of to us in the initial months of 2021.
