    More features inside:

    Paul Virilio’s seminal 1975 book Bunker Archaeology, the decaying WW2 fortifications laying on the French coast (photographed by Thibaut Grevet) provide the backdrop to interrogate the technical challenges of a dystopian future, as imagined by Virgil Abloh in the Louis Vuitton 2054 collection. 

    Set in the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho, a site for wolf reintroduction in the early ‘90s, the latest body of work by Matthew Barney addresses the mythology of the American West, ecosystem balance, exile and reparation, and the tradition of land art, as he discusses in conversation with curator Neville Wakefield.

    Peter Sutherland talks to Katja Horvat about his decision, after twenty years in New York, to leave the city during the lockdown and move back to his native Colorado—resulting in a largely autobiographical body of work brimming with life, family, and nature, punctuated by hikes, camping, bike rides, and goat searching. 

    Francesca Gavin outlines the musical legacy, eccentric persona, and visionary art of Jamaican-born, Swiss-based cultural pioneer Lee “Scratch” Perry, who invented the genre and methodology of dub—bringing us on a journey through outer and inner space, nature, and the complexities of the Afrodiasporic experience.
